From Venezuela to Cape Town.
This month we want to introduce you one of our kite instructors, Gustavo Torres, he came all the way from Venezuela to be a part of the Cabrinha Family this season!
Q // Tell us, where you were before you joined the Cabrinha Family?
G // Directly before I came to Cape Town I was recovering from a knee surgery back home. If I look to the past,I was working as a corporate lawyer in Rodriguez Torres & Asociados, in 2013. I made a career switch, and did the IKO in el Yaque in Venezuala to become a Kite instructor.
Q // What does a day at Cabrinha look like for you?
G // My days are pretty good, I work in the shop as a kiteboarding instructor, so my job is to teach the sport in the most fun and safest way possible.
Q // What is your favourite part about working for Cabrinha?
G // My favourite thing about working for Cabrinha are the people that run Cabrinha, they are super generous with all the staff so on the days there is no wind I can surf and SUP as much as I want. On days with no wind the Vibe at Cabrinha is still amazing.
Q // If you could switch your job with anyone else within Cabrinha Cape Town, whose job would you want and why?
G // I would switch my job with Grant, the owner of the shop. He is running one of the best kite-schools here in Cape town, he never seems to be busy or stress about anything and is super chill.
