|A few words about yourself.
|Live large, learn and love – practice alliteration
|What makes your ride?
|This sport offers so many combinations of other sports. It’s also like an exclusive club. Even when you leave for a while you’ll always want to come back. Windsurfing offers so much variety in style and expression – there is something for everyone and the learning is endless.
|How much do you love to windsurf?
|Can’t get enough. It is the most amazing and challenging sport. I wish I could do it as much as I use to.
|What is your most memorable session?
|I can’t think of any one session but Ho’okipa always delivers. I have had amazing huge days at Kuau, Lower Kanaha, Windmills, Florence OR and an exotic couple days at remote, Nootka Island, British Columbia.
|What inspires you?
|Hardcore athletic, blissed out, driven, high on life hippy freaks. Live well and love one another. Be encouraging and look after people.
|Describe your gear and the conditions you use it in.
|I am kind of a freestyle/wave guy and a jumper. Getting chubby hasn’t helped with this. I think I mostly like riding waves, aerials and trying to adapt freestyle to a variety of conditions. It’s fun to be creative. I have a range of boards from Air pro to Quads. The boards are insanely good, I only wish we had these back in the ‘90s.
|What does riding for Goya mean to you?
|Riding for the Goya team has been a dream come true. I have worked with many great companies but the Goya team were so inspirational to me when I was younger and building my competition experience. Francisco is without a doubt one of the fathers of new age windsurfing!
