5 x Brazilian Champion, 2 x Triple-S Winner, 5x Vice World Champion and 3x Freestyle World Champion, Bruna Kajiya is a fierce, feminine Brazilian hailing from Ilhabela. The first female rider to land a backside 315, Bruna is one of the most recognisable faces in kiteboarding. She is currently ranked #2 on the GKA World Tour. 


"With me, it's usually a storm of thoughts up until the moment that buzzer goes off, then I go into such a deep focus that everything else disappears. I'm in the present moment, and that kind of presence is what I live for."
