Would You Rather

With Slalom World No.3 Maëlle Guilbaud

In 2018, Maëlle Guilbaud (Patrik / Loftsails) earned her first podium on the PWA Slalom World Tour after finishing 3rd in South Korea - showing her potential as one of the future young hopefuls who could potentially challenge for the world title in years to come. Last season, the 23-year-old was able to secure another event podium finish, again in South Korea, while her consistency which saw her record only one result outside the top 4 in 4 events led to her completing the prestigious overall top 3 for the first time in her career. Maëlle is up next in ‘Would You Rather’.

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

In the past, I would like to stay small like 7/10 years [years old]. I was making my first plans.

Do you prefer to be free or totally safe?

I prefer to be free, so I can make my own choices. Let no one dictate to me what I should do or think. I can travel where I want and how I want.

Do you prefer to have free Wi-Fi wherever you go or have a free coffee where / when you want?

Free coffee - like this we can meet new people!

Do you prefer to lose the ability to read or lose the ability to speak?

Oulala! that's hard! I think I would rather lose the ability to speak because I could always write to communicate. but it is above all that I want to keep my ability to read, to be able to see everything around me, because the world is full of beautiful things.

Do you prefer to spend the rest of your life with a sailboat as your home or a motorhome as your home?

A sailboat - what a question! So I can move with the wind.

Prefer to have unlimited first class international tickets or never have to pay for food in restaurants?

Having international tickets for sure! I love the food but I still prefer to move. I still have lots of places to see in the world.

Do you prefer to be forced to dance every time you've heard music or to be forced to sing along with any song you've heard?

I'm thinking of dancing because if I sing it would rain every time!

Do you prefer to travel the world for a year on a shoestring budget or stay in one country for a year but live in luxury?

Travel the world on a shoestring budget.

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 of your death?

Heuuuuuu there I don't know. I'm too young to think about it and I don't have enough experience to take this idea. Haha!

Thanks, Maëlle!
