Dankie - South Africa
Youp Schmit (99NoveNove / Avanti) has been competing on the PWA Freestyle World Tour since 2010 but the super-talented Bonairean is still only 22-years-old. Like many of the world’s top freestylers, he spent part of his winter in Cape Town, South Africa, where he was training, while also recording his new documentary, which focuses on his lifestyle as well as his windsurfing skills.
Youp Schmit: “Check out my teaser of my upcoming short-documentary! COMING OUT SOON! DANKIE South Africa! A short documentary made by filmmaker Floris Tils. The lifestyle I live inspired me to tell my story, I dedicated all my life to windsurfing and this has opened the life I live today.
Being able to travel all across the world meeting new countries, cultures and making new adventures is an amazing experience, that for I say in African, ''DANKIE'' to all that is around me and on my path.BIG Amazing THX to the people who believe in me and all my sponsors that keep believing in me each and everyday, and at last but not least GOD. Amen”
