‘Susi’ Mai was a late starter to kiteboarding, that is compared to her Red Bull team mate and rival Gisela Pulido who is yet to reach 18, the age Mai decided to give kiteboarding a go. But she's a natural. At her first world cup event she took second place, quite a debut for someone who claims that her only sporting experience before kiteboarding was time on the PlayStation!
She has been crowned ‘Queen of the air’ three times and is ranked 11th on the PKRA tour having finished second on the tour in 2003. Sheer determination, passion and raw talent have got Mai to the point she is today, and its clear to see that she is a name to watch out for in the future.
