Casey was born in the UK, but left home to travel the world when she was just 18. As a lifelong adrenalin and adventure seeker, she had long been an extreme sports fan, but her life changed forever when she discovered kitesurfing in 2013.
Beyond the thrill of riding, she also quickly discovered her passion for teaching. Casey became an Instructor that same year, jumped into managing kitesurfing schools and has since taught in some of the best locations in the world – including Cape Town, Sri Lanka, Western Australia and Egypt.
She was a sponsored competitive athlete, known for her big air tricks, and yet she is approachable and personable for riders at every level. Casey’s teaching style is a cocktail of energy, easy-going attitude, conviction in her skill, simple tools, humour, and dedication to each individual having their own dream experience.
