“I’m on a mission, to win the PWA , dominate the foil world and GOLD at the Olympic games in PARIS 2024 and 2028 Los Angeles. Yep, you’re reading it good Olympic gold back-to-back. That’s the mission. It’s the dream I have been chasing for the last 10 years. A road I drive my way. Which means in style and with dominance. Windsurfing has been my life for 14 years now. With my competitive character I always want to be the best. To be the best I need and want to work with the best. The best coach, the best training mates, the best gear, and the best partners.
Taking the gold in Paris would obviously be the ultimate way to satisfy my competitiveness, and to be able to do it on the iQ Foil would make it even more special. As I was one of the first of my generation to start foiling and push the limits.”
