1st PWA event entered Fuerteventura Freestyle 2013

I have been windsurfing since young and always had a passion for freestyle, I was inspired when my family and I went on a trip to Bonaire. I got to see the top level of freestyle first hand, watching Kiri, Tonky, Taty and all the other Bonaire locals. My first proper freestyle event was the 2010 IFCA Pro Kids on Bonaire where I placed 2nd behind Amado Vrieswijk in the Under 15 category. This is when I decided I wanted to push my level in freestyle and try and compete in more competitions. I then started to windsurf and compete more and more in the UK and met the other freestyler's from around England. Last year I had my first proper impressions of competing at such a high level and I really learnt a lot. I was really happy to be able to compete on Bonaire in 2014 as I have been visiting this spot as I have been growing up and it is really special to me. I was happy with my sailing in the heats but made a lot of mistakes which meant I finished in 33rd. I was not expecting to win heats straight away and am glad I learnt so much from this event. After PWA Bonaire i competed in Fuerteventura and finished 25th which I was really happy about and cant wait to be back there to compete again and show what I can do.
