Clarissa Hempel, Maui Hawaii

Clarissa Hempel, Maui, Hawaii

Where are you from?
Born in Brazil but live on Maui Hawaii

Your age?
young 26

Where did you grow up?
I lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil until I was 17, then moved to the US

Any sponsors? Who?
Cabrinha for all kite equipment, Chiemsee for clothing, CP-eyewear for sunglasses and NPX for wetsuits.


Special achievements...?
Special fact I would say is that Yoga came into my life.

Life occupation besides kite...
Some photos here and there and I'm also a Jewelry Designer but with the kiting I haven't had time to do any



Tell me a little bit about yourself
I want to have fun in this journey called life! The world in most land or civilization is chaos to me... I want simplicity, coconuts and my own garden... Be self sufficient is my ultimate. My yoga, my conscious diet and lots of adrenaline is my present... I live the Now... and that is what guarantees me a future full of bliss... Freedom, love, understanding and subtle energy... Traveling is a must, can't create too many roots in just one place... I must keep moving to keep it interesting...
Cooking naturally, photography, surfing, jewelery making and design, playing guitar are other passions. Coconuts and raw pies are a must!


In every genre there are songs I like... But some reggae, Norah Jones, Ben Harper or some 80's ballads are essential in my itunes.

Interested in..?
Having fun, laughing, Yoga, eating raw, coconuts, surf, photography, bamboo, traveling, alternative energy, meditation, playing guitar, loving someone and lots more!


Raw and vegetarian... Exotic fruits, like durian and dragon fruit.

My dad and my grandma


Favorite kitesurfing spots for you?
Tahiti, Indonesia and Brasil

Places you have been kiting at...
Tahiti, Indonesia, Brasil, Turkey, Greece, many Islands in the Caribbean, many different spots on the east and west coast of the US, Hawaii, Switzerland, Cape Verde, Canary Islands, Venezuela... that's what I remember for now...


How long have you been kitesurfing?
Almost 6 years

Why kitesurfing?
Why not! It brings me to nature, instinctively magical... Nature is my religion and the ocean is my church... The adrenaline I get form it is also a reason...


What does your family think of this?
They love it! They think is a very beautiful and fun sport. I'm getting my brother's into it since they are already great surfers.


Favorite tricks?
Jumping high or surface passes

What does this sport demand of you?
Fitness, awareness and creativity! oh... and stretching...


Have you ever been in an accident?
Yup, a pretty scary one...
Well, I'm alive enough to tell you the story for these bloody shots.
The kickers @ Kanaha are just perfect to throw some flat 3s... but you got to make sure you land it, otherwise hope for luck, cause the reef is right there, only a foot or two underwater... I found that out after I crashed from an attempt of a pass... hmm... don’t remember much after that. Luckily I was able to make it back to the beach. And off course the ambulance was right there a couple minutes after.


Cat scans and other exams found that I didn’t have any internal bleeding, besides a concussion and few cuts in my head which I am still trying to keep it from getting an infection. Lots of nasty stuff in the water after the big rainy week we had here in Hawaii.


Well, definitely learned a lesson, don’t try tricks that you are not 100% good at in shallow h2os. Oh, and get some health insurance, a $3700 bill for sure increased my pain.
See photos and the whole story of it here


Vision...your wishes for the future….
I want to spread to the world the idea of getting back to nature! Somehow show people that happiness comes from within and that simplicity is very connected to it. So eventually I'd like to teach people how to find happiness through Yoga, meditation, healthy and conscious diet or just a down to earth life style. At the same time make people understand how important it is to be self sufficient, by using alternative sources of power and by growing your own food.



Personal message from Clarissa Hempel
People of this world! Let's just be happy! Let our hearts fill up with positive feelings and our actions full of love and understanding. We have no time to loose in this voyage! So mine as well feel good and believe that all is perfect! Let's take advantage of every little moment we live... stop thinking about our lives, instead we should live it!
