“I am really happy to be part of the jury as I have been a surfer for the last 42 years, and still surf almost every day. As an engineer working in the innovation field and with start-up companies for the past 19 years, I will be happy to see what is up-and-coming. The ISPO is a great event, and I have participated every year since 2003.”
