BIOGRAPHY

My name is Miguel Díaz Ruiz, but I am better known as Mika.

I was born on the 4th of October 1975 to Spanish parents in Belgium. From the age of 8, together with my family, we moved several times from Belgium to Spain for my father's work, until I decided at the age of 19 to return alone to Asturias, my father's native region. After a few years there I moved to Tenerife where I have been living ever since.

The Canary Islands are a paradise for all my hobbies: paragliding, skydiving, surfing, diving and mountain-related activities which, together with my profession as a firefighter, link me to the four elements: air, water, earth and fire.

In 1989, at the age of 14, following my father's example, I was initiated into the world of free flight, unaware that it would become a way of life.

For several years I did acro and now I compete in cross-country competitions and I represent Spain as a member of the national team. Of my recent results, the ones that gave me most satisfaction were 12th place in the Superfinal of the World Cup in Governador Valadares, Brazil and third place in the Spanish Championships.

I am described as a cautious daredevil, respectful in personal relationships and in competitions.
