Q&A

HOBBIES

skiing, snowboarding, working☺, reading about physics

BEST DAY IN MY LIFE

Summer of 2008, I was out sailing at the Hatchery with all my sailing buddies, and I was nailing all my moves, perfectly powered on a 3.6, then topped it off with cocktails on the rocks while watching the sun go down, and some reminiscing. Wish every day could be like that!

BEST 'VACATION

A Big Island/Maui trip which combined hiking, star gazing at the visitors center for the Keck Observatory on top of Mauna Kea, snorkelling, awesome fish and Thai food, and of course great windsurfing in Maui.

FAVOURITE MUSIC

My favourite pre-session and dancing music is Latin mixed with Hip Hop and Reggaeton especially “You Know I Want You”, Pitbull and “Ahora Es”, Wisin and Yindel.

FAVOURITE SPOT(S)

The Hatchery, SPI on a 4.1 day, Waipio Valley, Big Island.

PERSONAL MADNESS & OBSESSION

I think about windsurfing moves while day-dreaming and in my sleep. Freestyle windsurfing is addicting, and when I’m not sailing I don’t feel myself.

ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU WANT THE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU:

any thing else that you want the people to know about you: I love talking about sail trim and board design, and also technique for doing moves. I’m kind of techy.
