: Please present yourself, tell us a bit about you?
My name is Dylan Shewfelt. I was born in Canada on November 28th in 1991. I was relocated to Mexico at the age of nine. Started snowboarding in Canada when i was 4 and later continued in Colorado throughout high-school. In 2009 i moved back to Mexico and having a lack of snow I had to look for something else than snowboarding to keep myself challenged. Thats how I came to discover and practice kiteboarding in Playa del Carmen
, Mexico. PDCK
: How and when did you get involved in the Kiteboarding industry?
After my first beginner lesson the kiteschool offered me a job, which I was more than happy to take. I could easily say that I didnt leave the beach since then. Even the thought of missing out on some wind makes me nervous. From the beginning my passion for kiting overgrew everything and felt more than natural to live that lifestyle day-by-day. Since then I teach and train during the winter seasons in Playa del Carmen
with PDC Kiteboarding School
) at the Sandos Playacar Resort
and discover new spots around the world in the off-season. Making sure that I kite as much as my body can take and a little bit more...PDCK
