Day 2 at the 2016 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championship
“I started windsurfing when I was 8 years old and in 2013 I got the opportunity to qualify myself for the Youth Olympic Games in China, so I tried the Bic Techno 293 and qualified for the 2014 Youth Olympics and well after Techno 293 I stepped over to the RS:X”.
“Its a pretty long story; actually I recently moved to Holland and got accepted into the Dutch team and I have spend some time training with them for about 3 Month. In the end I can say that I was well prepared for this Championships”.
“I attended the Europeans and some other small events, It was not a busy season for me as I was moving from Aruba to Holland and I have been occupied with my lats school year, but now it seems to get a bit busier”.
“So far I really like the place and the conditions and the wind has been perfect so far. The Conditions are perfect, nice and choppy”.
“The defending Champon Yoav Omer from Israel who is performing well, in fact the whole team from Israel is strong including the Dutch team”.
“I feel happy, relaxed and fit as I trained a lot so after the lay day I will put the focus on having some more good races”.
A Shout out to my Fans:
Masha masha Danki pa e support i mi ta hasi mi best ( Thank you very much for the support and I will continue to do my best )

“Well my own team is very strong, then there is Emma Wilson from Great Britain and the girl from Peru; Maria Belen Bazo”.
“Its fun and exciting to be in the lead”.
I do feel pressure but I try to put it aside and to continue to give my best”.
“Its my second time here in Cyprus and I love this place, except for the chops they are quite big”.
