After growing up in the UK, Mark Shinn moved to the Canary Islands to pursue a windsurfing career. He discovered kiteboarding in 1999 and quickly rose to the top, competing on the circuit until 2005 when he refocused his efforts to start his own board company. Mark Shinn has made kiteboarding history in 2002 when he achieved – for the 1st time ever – the unthinkable by winning both the Professional Kite Riders Association World Title (PKRA) and the Kiteboard Pro World Tour World Title (KPWT), making him the first Undisputed Dual World Champion since the sport’s inception.
