Fame is fleeting. Money takes wing. Popularity is an accident.
I have had some major injuries in my days, and when I shattered my ankle in Gran Canaria in 2000, the doctors said my career was finished. Well that was good motivation!! Since winning the Freestyle Title in 2002, a large weight has been lifted off my back. I followed that up with back to back World Titles in the Supercross discipline in 2004 and 2005 and was 2nd in 2006!
Being a professional windsurfer has always been my dream. I have worked hard to get where I am and have enjoyed every moment of it.
I reside in Maui where I can go windsurfing whenever I want. I am busy doing private lessons and clinics around the world. I love teaching people and seeing them learn something they have been working on for more than 10 years- it is very rewarding!
I won my first PWA World Title in 2000- that was a mighty big task taking down 11 Time World Champion Bjorn Dunkerbeck and it was an incredible feeling.
I continue to push myself year after year and strive for perfection. I love windsurfing, it will always be a part of me and it makes me who I am!
I have been living in Hawaii and on the road traveling around the world seeing all the sights for 22 years.
It has been the journey of a lifetime for me. Canyon Lake California is where it all started. I strive for excellence in everything I do and it has enabled me to be one of the best windsurfers on the planet.
Over the past two decades, KEVIN AND MATT PRITCHARD have both won several PWA WINDSURFING WORLD TITLES and impressed the windsurfing world with their unique style, outstanding performance and great personality. Now retired from their lives on the Pro Tour, they are still actively ripping and heavily involved in the great sport we all love!
