Born in Vigo, I first travelled to Indo in 1996 and to the Mentawai one year later.
During the next years I travelled to Indo for long periods of time and to know more areas of this country.
After exploring Bali and surrounding islands, I quickly realized that the best surfing conditions where in the islands closer to the equator.
In 2000 I tried to set up a charter company in the Mentawai, but the project was short-lived. In May next year I met Poti and in December 2001 we decided to give it a go.
