My name is Thierry,
and I have been living in Anguilla, BWI since September, 2002 and currently live in the beautiful Island Saint Martin. I moved to this Tropical Paradise after living in Paris for 30 years and 5 years in Bordeaux.

I worked as a graphic artist for 22 plus years which enabled me to have the free time when I needed.

My father helped get me connected with mother sea Thierry Dehove: when I was 10 years old. In 1977 I went down for my very first scuba dive with my father. It was the most beautiful under water experience I have ever had.

I used to go to the French Alps
each winter to ski and snowboard... I became a ski instructor for kids and it was an amazing time to share this sport with the youth”...

Years later, I discovered windsurfing
and realized it was my dream sport. I remember windsurfing and getting the shivers of freedom on mother sea. I practiced this sport for 10 years and have had the opportunity to ride at all the best spots in France & Europe.
I met amazing people and created a social gathering that I enjoyed tremendously. I spent my weekends traveling In my van trying to find the perfect wind and waves. One thing I do regret Is not spending the time to get proper professional windsurfing lessons to improve my “style”.

 

Thierry Dehove: I also spent a lot of time surfing
in France on large waves. Surfing Is a wonderful sport too. All you need Is a surf board and you need to be in good shape.

I really though that windsurfing was going to be my sport until my old ages.. but in 2001, a good friend of mine, owner a surf shop bought a 7 meter kite (wipika) with only 2 lines...

Everyone looked at this kite as though we were crazy and never thought you could actually surf and be pulled around by a powerful kite... We knew that this would be the future water and wind sport. I started taking kitesurfing lessons and really picked the sport up like a natural.
I felt as though I was using my past windsurfing, snowboarding and surfing skills all In one sport. The kite surfing equipment and security systems were starting to get better and I started getting a unique feeling of freedom and was flying with this spot. I started to travel a lot and the future became clear. I sold all my windsurfing equipment to focus on this extreme and “flying” sport called "Kitesurfing"...

Thierry Dehove: I ended up In Anguilla,
a small island in Caribbean and I spend my weekends riding with my buddy Judd. I also have been very fortunate to meet the love of my life, Tal who now lives in Saint Martin with me.

Thierry Dehove:
The best thing happened in my life: Meet Tal
on this Island through my site. We got married on one of the most beautiful Anguilla beaches and on the beginning of 2008 we moved to Saint Martin, just 30 mn from Anguilla but so different.
We work together, kite together and we bring you TPK with our 4 hands, so you can now enjoy great photos, videos, kiting guidlines, updates, stories and a great community of passionate kitesurfers as yourself, Cabrinha equipment shop, travel ideas for kite and more.
