Back In The Game
After the 2019 Fuerteventura PWA World Cup - sponsored by René Egli - Youp Schmit (Tabou / GA Sails) was the co-leader of the PWA Freestyle World Tour along with eventual world champion - Yentel Caers (I-99 / Point-7). Unfortunately though the now 25-year-old suffered a knee injury in August, which required surgery and badly hampered his preparation for the final event the year in Sylt. Somehow Schmit still managed to compete and while the world title was out of his grasp this time around he was still able to set a personal best in the overall rankings - 4th.
Schmit’s performances last season caught the eye of Tabou and GA Sails and now that he’s almost back to 100% fit he’s been getting adjusted to life on his new gear in Bonaire.
