FOUNDER

David Trewern

Founder and CEO

David Trewern grew up in the coastal town of Merimbula NSW, Australia. He learnt to surf, windsurf and sail by age 10. In 1998 David was one of the first people in Australia to Kitesurf, and in 2005 David designed a board and broke the (GPS) Kitesurfing world speed record with a top speed of 48.5 knots (500m average speed of 44.8knots).

David business career started early, and over the past 21 years David has developed three successful businesses including Australia’s leading innovation agency DT (now AKQA – part of WPP). On exit of his third business, David moved with his family to Byron Bay.

Having spent many years racing on Hydrofoil kiteboards David identified the potential for powered flight; due to the amazing efficiency of hydrofoils. Fliteboard was born.

A few years later and David is combining decades of business, design, and software experience with his love for water sports and the ocean.
