Gabi Steindl

Action Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS -

Orig­i­nally from Aus­tria, Gabi is now based in Aus­tralia – Mar­garet River in Western Aus­tralia to be pre­cise. Her main rea­son for mov­ing to the other side of the world was sim­ple: waves. A one-time Ac­tion Asia em­ployee, she left her cor­po­rate ca­reer in 2002 to be­come a pro­fes­sional kitesurfer. Af­ter sev­eral years in the Kite World Cup, she stopped com­pet­i­tive rid­ing and em­barked on a ca­reer as a glo­be­trot­ting freerider, ad­ven­turer and travel writer. More than 60 coun­tries later, she has been fea­tured in nu­mer­ous TV and film pro­duc­tions and worked for mag­a­zines around the world. Gabi is cur­rently working on her first book and you can keep up to date with her trav­els at www.kite­gabi.com
