“I'm higher at take-off than those who have bombed out.”
BIOGRAPHY

I learned to launch and land at the age of 14 thanks to my brother, at a time when there was almost no school or teaching methodology. After that I did one solo flight and some tandem flights with my brother. In 2007 I was 27 years old and I was able to do a proper course in Castejón de Sos. Once I qualified I bought my first wing, a Niviuk NK-1. I was a beginner, so my criteria wasn’t stringent… I liked the colours.

I started competitions soon after, sneaking into the Spanish championship in 2008 because I was mistaken for someone else and the selection at that time was not by ranking. After that I didn’t stop competing. I didn't get any outstanding results, but I did get some podiums in the lower categories and good task results.

In 2017 I began travelling with my bicycle and paraglider. I crossed India and Morocco in 2018, the Balkans in 2019 and Tunisia in 2020, solo with my bike. That’s why I created my YouTube channel, something small but entertaining. On this channel I recount my adventures, but now they are very limited by the pandemic. I hope I can return to travelling and flying very soon.
