30 yr-old Yolanda ‘Yoli’, Freites de Brendt (V-26 Fanatic / North) hails from the hotbed of Freestyle talent that is Isla Margarita, just off Venezuela’s Caribbean coastline.
Yoli finished up 6th overall in Women’s Freestyle in 2006, and being surrounded by Freestyle legends and World Champions at her home beach of El Yaque, she isn’t exactly short of inspiration to try the latest moves.
With the recent focus having been on the Wave title’s fascinating conclusion, the Freestyle fleets competitors have already begun their training for the 2007 season.
Yoli’s no exception and she sent us a link to some nice footage of how her off-season preparation is going.
Being a quiet and unassuming person Yoli lets her performance on the water to the talking. See what you think of what she’s got to say here.
