Craig Cunningham

Craig was born and raised in the Great Lakes region of Canada. To focus on his professional Kitesurfing career, he moved to Colombia River Gorge, in Oregon. Known as a Kitesurfing innovator for his riding outside of the box and for having a different style than most in the sport, Craig managed to snag the most cover shots of any athlete in the sport. After years in the Kitesurfing world as an athlete, it was time to move into the background and sharing his knowledge and direction with the groms on their way up! He now focuses on helping the next generation of athletes, pushing the sport to the next level and to always ensure to have the most fun doing it. To be as effective as possible in his new role of Team Manager / Creative Development he moved to Europe to be on the same time zone as the majority of his athletes and HQ of his past sponsors, now employers.

In his spare time, he is an avid action sports enthusiast. Surfing, skateboarding, snow, wake, basically he likes to stand sideways! A true multi-tasker and multi-sport athlete and a great addition to the Curfboard team. Being an adult surf beginner was not easy for someone who had already achieved such a high level in other boardsports. He credits a lot of his fast progression to muscle memory from pumping and walking his dog every day with a Curfboard.  Plus, he’s found a great tool with the Curfboard to work on his turns with the correct style and technique.
