PWA World Cup in Portugal – Summary​!

What a World Cup in freestyle and slalom!
Great to see the girls ripping so hard! It was perfect to have a spot that offers the best sailing. Small ramps for a bit of jumping also. Happy to land burners, skopus and backloops in the heats and make it to 3 out of 4 finals against my amiga Sarah-Quita.
Looking back at the results I feel like the 2nd place went away in a gust… Losing the first double with 0,15 points by one mistake was hard, but that was a reality. It’s what makes the competition so exciting!
After the 2nd double when I got 2nd I was getting ready for slalom and released all the freestyle focus, just before getting told to do a sail off against Maaike in case we won’t have more wind. We both had one 2nd place each in the two double eliminations.
Fair enough, just not ideal straight after the final. It was not even in my mind that we would do a sail off while still having more wind that day and 3 more days to go. I did not win this one, and Maaike sailed better in that heat to take overall 2nd place.

I’m already thinking about the next event in Fuerteventura that will start in 4 weeks, and I am feeling super motivated! It’s been amazing to be here in Portugal and the event really pushed my limits in both slalom and freestyle! Now I feel like anything is possible!
Congrats to Sarah, Maaike and Arrianne for overall 1st and 2nd and 4th! I’m so happy that we have so many close heats and can show women windsurfers what is possible! We are all here to make it better for the future generation’s and I do think we did a good job!
For freestyle, my results were:
1st single elimination: 2nd place
1st double: 3rd place
2nd single: 2nd place
2nd double: 2nd place
Overall 3rd place.

In slalom, I ended up with a boring 11th place. I learned a lot about 48 knots slalom sailing, and manage to get to half of the winner’s finals and won one loser´s final. I had higher expectations in slalom if we would be racing on bigger gear like 7.8, but in the high wind slalom, my focus was more about getting used to it. I´m really happy with my starts and speed, but I was falling too much in the gybes when I had less pressure. Good to test your self and know what to work on for next year slalom World Tour!
Overall it was the most fun World Cup I ever competed in! Thanks to FeelViana and all the organizers for making this event happen!
I will come back for training and the next year World Cup! Now we will continue our roadtrip searching for more wind!

Video – Jump, Freeride and Loop Clinic in Jericoacoara, October 2018! Sign up

 

Want to join this adventure in October?

For the last 3 years, I have organized windsurfing clinics at my favorite place on earth, Jericoacoara, in Brazil together with Jeri250. Last year I had a dedicated loop clinic. It was a great success and the sailors who joined got over the fear and went for their first loops.

As last year, there will be a lot of focus on the loop, but also a clinic where you can learn your first jumps, basic wave riding and get a better stance to sail faster. And of course, learn that tack and plaining gybe and never look back. Jericoacoara is a perfect place to run a clinic as we have wind every single day in October (at least for the last 7 years…)

The clinic will last for 4 days from the 10th – 13th of October, with 2 sessions per day.

Price: 4 days clinic – 500 euros

9 days rental gear/accommodation/transfer from the airport – price starting from 839 euros. (You can choose to book for less/more days).

If you want to join, you only need to book your flights and travel with your suitcase. The rest we will arrange =) The place you can stay at (Pousada do Mauricio) is located 100 meters from the beach and you don´t need a car. Just sunglasses, sunscreen and a lycra!

Windsurfing with no wind!

Just a normal day at the beach! God knows how many times I drove to this spot with a windy forecast that never showed up. Sitting at the beach with barely any knots, forced to return the 45-minute drive. Not anymore with a foil in the van =)

New video – “Get Shit Done”

 

It refers to the life of a windsurfer without a coach, manager or any other system that tells you what to do, when to work out, when to book tickets, how to find sponsors and how to make a living. We are our own coaches, managers and time planners. So to get where you want as a windsurfer, you simply need to get your shit done – because a windsurfer’s life is the best life!

Watch in HD!

Thanks to all my sponsors for all the support!
