Like Misty, Pete is a master in all things related to water- he has international titles in surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. He is the founder of Cabrinha Kites, whose team consists of big names like Annabel van Westerop and Susi Mai. His success has led him to travel all over the world, but no place is like home. He resides with his wife and daughter in Maui. With the MaiTai event being held in Maui, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to ask the water master his to share with Posse his top places to go.
