A few words about yourself…
What makes your ride?
Isn’t riding the meaning of life (the one and only;-)?
How much do you love to windsurf?
Enough to not become a “decent member of society” and to move out to the beach and spend a life without cars and career but wind, waves and sun.
What is your most memorable session?
The early morning of the first of January 2009. Punta Preta, mast high waves, 20 knots side-sideoff, only Josh Angulo and me on the water.
What inspires you?
The beauty which lies sometimes in the simplicity of things.
Describe your quiver and the range of conditions you use it on.
Eclipse 4,7 – 5,7 with the Goya Custom Twinfin 81 Spots: Westcoast of Sal: Down the line waveriding in side- side off
What does riding for Goya mean to you?
Getting support from the brand that I sailed and advertised for years privately and being part of the Goya team makes me incredibly proud. Representing the brand where everybody from the team rider to the management is so passionate about windsurfing is the coolest thing that ever happened to me in my windsurfing life.
