BIO

2X freestyle Asian Champion Course Racing Asian Champion 2012

Aya was born and raised in the middle of Japan. In 2007 after her first kite lessons in Nagoya, she was addicted to this sport. She started competing the following year on a Japanese small Kite event.

From 2009 she started to take part in international competitions and finished 9th overall on the PKRA World Tour in 2010. The next year was a big year for her, getting her first Asian Freestyle Champion title on the KTA Tour. At the same time she started competing in Course Racing and in 2012 was awarded both Racing and Freestyle Asian Champion titles.

Since her success around the World, Aya has decided to share her wealth of experience with others and coaches advanced riders and complete beginners.
 Living in Sri Lanka which is well known for good wind and flat water spots, she spends every minute she has coaching or kiting and just can not get enough. This is probably the reason she is smiling all day and just enjoys life to the max.

 “It is so fun to live in Sri Lanka with nice people around and the wind almost all year round.
 Kiteboarding is growing more and more popular in Asia and I would like to promote the sport in the region. As 3 times Asian Champion I really love to share my knowledge with others on the water.”
