About me

Story teller, photographer, traveller, extreme sports devotee…
But indulge me when I introduce myself a bit differently.

About Aiste Ridikaite

I love photography and telling stories. It is the love of my life. But my journey to this realization was also quite interesting and worth telling.
My career as a communication consultant in different industries continues for more than 15 years. Everything started with a bachelor's degree in psychology. The subject fascinates me now as well. Especially sports and high-performance psychology.
I was a Public Relations consultant for more than 5 years. I have consulted the biggest banks, insurance companies, and law firms in my country. At the same time, I have studied Masters's in Journalism.
Then came kiteboarding. And everything changed.
Kiteboarding was the reason why I quit my office job, bought a ticket, and went to live and work on the beach. As a kiteboarding coach. Sometimes I still teach kiteboarding - 13 years in total.
Spending all my time next to action and extreme sports athletes, inspired me for the next turn in my journey - I became the director of the one and only extreme sports TV program in the Baltic states.
In 2021 I won not only the best sports picture of the year but was invited to participate in the Ocean Race Europe. Since then, I am completely in love with sailing photography.
Through all this time I have tried 30 different extreme sports: aerobatic flying, skydiving, freeskiing, car racing, motocross, etc.
And…I traveled. More than 40 countries in total. Lived for a longer period of time in 10 countries over 5 continents.

I am not done yet.
