NAME: Dimitris Softas
FIRST RIDE: 2008
LITTLE STUFF ABOUT YOU: My name is Dim. I was born in Volos city, Greece in 1989 and since 2008 i fell in love with kiteboarding! Kiteboarding is not just a sport is a way of life so i hunt the wind all year long, i like to ride in flat water spots and love pushing myself everytime! So as long as i can do all these i will be out there pushing the sport everyday !
Because kiteboarding gives me so much that feeling… how can i explain it? let’s say like your mind is totally free from everything and you live the excact moment!
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU IN LIFE?
A lot of things but mostly whatever has to do with freedom! To live a free life with no stress for me is the most important.
WHAT DRIVES YOUR PASSION?
This kind of life, being in the water everyday, riding, travelling, meeting people everywhere and because everyday you can push the limits, you can’t be bored.

FAVORITE LOCATION AND WHY?
Raches,drepano,tsimari because of the perfect conditions, butter flat and constant wind!
FAVORITE RIDER AND WHY?
I don’t really have a favorite rider, i like many of them for different reasons, some for their style some for their abilities and their personality. But if i had to choose i would say Youri Zoon and Aaron Hadlow because from these guys i learned everything!
