Favourite maneuvre:Coming out of the last gybe mark ahead of the pack. Then smacking some big lips on my day off.

How I started:In 1988 my whole family had a lesson on a little lake, it was freezing so they gave us 2 wetsuits each! My mum was the best that day, but I thought it was the best thing in the world and I still do.

Best windsurfing day in my life:At the Fuerte World Cup with the fin from Pieter Bilj and the mast from Dave McGuiness, Arnon Dagan will sing the song for you if you ask nicely. It was the best day of my life, so far…

My Goals:Do what I have to do…

My Slogan:Live every minute of life and never waste a moment.
