Q&A

BIO

I started windsurfing in Dahab, Egypt, where i went from working in a windsurf centre “Five Squares” to having my own camps for girls – Windsurf Beauties and kids too. I now travel 50% of my time to distant locations like Mauritius and South Africa where i train in the waves and on flat water. I teach a lot in Russia and abroad, my camps a very popular among Russian people. My dream is to chase big and powerful waves, that’s why i love Mauritius so much.

BEST RESULTS

FAVORITE SPOT(S)
