Would You Rather

With Sarah-Quita Offringa

Whether she’s on the race course, out in the waves or freestyling - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) - is usually battling it out for the top honours in the sport and more often than not she earns her place on the top of the podium. The Aruban’s natural talent together with her competitive instinct has seen her win an incredible 17 world titles thus far (12 Freestyle, 4 Slalom & 1 Wave) and there’s no signs of her slowing down any time soon with the 28-year-old adding two more titles to her collection in 2019. SQ is also our next sailor up in ‘Would You Rather’.

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

I guess I would rather be alive in the past. 
I think I like the slow paced life is a bit better.
Like, let’s go to the beach on horseback!

Would you rather be free or be totally safe?

Freeedooomm for sure. That keeps things exciting.

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

No brainer. Free coffee for the rest of my life.

Feed me water when I look too wired please.

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

Lose the ability to speak. It would be terrible to not be able to read anymore. And since we mostly text anyway these days, it’s not too bad not to be able to speak haha.

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

I get seasick so badly! But my dream is to live on a sailboat and cruise the Caribbean surrounded by impossibly blue water. What mooooree do you want?!?!

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

First class tickets please. I’ve spent a lot of time in economy. It’s been great. But I need an upgrade.

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

Forced to dance. I do that anyway. For everyone else’s eardrums it would be terrible if  I started singing every time rather than dance.

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? 

Travel the world on a shoestring budget. Trips like that make for the best stories!

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?

If you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life right…?

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?

Learning new moves is what makes freestyle so fun. So rather crash more, but learn more in the end. 

Thanks, SQ!
