Would You Rather

With Freestyle World No.4 Youp Schmit

Youp Schmit (Tabou / GA Sails) enjoyed his best season to date on the World Tour in 2019 - entering the final event of the year with a genuine world title chance. Unfortunately a knee injury suffered just 6 weeks before the finale in Sylt hampered his chances, but he still walked away in an excellent 4th place overall. The 25-year-old is our next sailor to take our ‘Would You Rather’ quiz…

If you were reborn in a new life, would you rather be alive in the past or in the future?

The future fascinates me, yet I would be love to experience the windsurfing world in the 90’s.

Would you rather be free or totally safe?

I would rather be free! I love my freedom and especially now with the COVID-19 situation we all feel how important our freedom is! 

Would you rather have free Wi-Fi wherever you go or have free coffee where/whenever you want? 

Free coffee sounds great! But I am not a coffee drinker, so I would rather have free Wi-Fi please!

Would you rather lose the ability to read or ability to speak?

I would rather lose the ability to read, because I would still be able to communicate while speaking.

Would you rather spend the rest of your life with a sailboat as your home or an RV as your home?

I would rather spend the rest of my life on a sailboat because I love the ocean, plus if so my sailboat would be sailing through the Caribbean, surfing and catching fish.

Would you rather have unlimited international first-class tickets or never have to pay for food at restaurants?

I would rather have those unlimited international first-class tickets to keep on traveling the world. 

Would you rather be forced to dance every time you heard music or be forced to sing along to any song you heard?

I would rather sing along! I am not the number 1 dancer on the dance floor, just on the water dancing freestyle moves.

Would you rather travel the world for a year on a shoestring budget or stay in only one country for a year but live in luxury?

I would rather travel the world on a shoestring budget. Seeing new places and meeting new people is one of the best experiences you can have.

Would you rather have a horrible job, but be able to retire comfortably in 10 years or have your dream job, but have to work until the day you die?

I would rather have my dream job! I love to be busy and to be doing my thing.

Would you rather be able to land every move in the world right now and never crash again or still be able to still learn new moves, but crash 10 times more frequently than it usually takes you to land a new move?

I would rather keep learning and crashing, this is the most fun about windsurfing! 

THX guys!

Thanks to you also Youp!
