Luke McGillewie

Cape Town, South Africa
D.O.B: 25 December 1994



Immigrated to South Africa from the UK with his family, Luke got his first taste of kitesurfing in early 2005. He quickly established himself in the South African kitesurfing scene as the little enthusiastic kid always ready to go – a day wouldn’t go by where you wouldn’t see Luke out on the water regardless of the conditions. Even at a young age he had an influence over the market and was knowledgeable about all the intricacies of the equipment. A professional since 2011 with a focus on Wave Riding and Strapless Freestyle, Luke's passion was always with design and R&D to provide feedback to the brands on how to improve the equipment which led to him having a big input in the growth and development of the product. Luke is building himself a reputation for being an ultimate waterman being proficient in freestyle, wave riding, surfing, standup paddling and foiling. He is also adding value to brands through his media agency where through photography and videography he documents his explorations for tourism benefits.
