Who are your models in windsurfing? Colette Guadagnino - because she is a nice girl, a good friend - and I enjoyed sailing together with her for 4 years, which pushed me to become better and better...!

What causes you fear? To try the spin-loop on Starboard-Tack and sailing in big Waves!

What makes you laugh? Better What makes you smile: People who enjoy dancing!!

With whom would you like to spend an evening? Whoopy Goldberg
Windsurfing - better than sex? Why?
Well it is the same for me, because first I go windsurfing with my boyfriend and after I have sex with him as well - before or/and after??? Yes I love both - but details I`ll keep for myself! ;-)
Is the sport of windsurfing a macho-sport?
I think so - Yes, it is getting better though. But even most woman are "machos". I think the woman should stay feminin, even if they windsurf good!.
tips for GIRLS who want to learn windsurfing:
1. Go for windsurfing vacation where it is warm, windy and shallow.
2. Take Lessons.
3. To learn windsurfing is very hard, stick thru the beginning, it will become easier after you get better!!
