anybody I like to hang out with
Windsurfing - better than sex? Why?
Hmm, they both feel good, but in different ways - if you know what I mean?! I donīt want to miss out on both and therefore I see no reason compare them
Is the sport of windsurfing a macho-sport?
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. It really depends on the place you are at. But in general I would say No.
What do you like about windgirls.com magazine?
That itīs a "girls-only" mag. No guys allowed or shown. It prevents you with all the latest news and pics of whatīs going on in  the world of womenīs windsurfing!
What do you think about the PWA-tour?
Itīs an ok thing, but as I have been on that tour for 3 years I have to say that it is a bit pricy and I think they donīt put a lot of effort in for the women on tour. Maybe itīs going to be an awesome year in 2004 because thereīre a lot of new faces and comer-up girls. Weīll see! 
Three tips for GIRLS who want to learn windsurfing:
1. donīt let your boyfriend teach you
2. go and take professional lessons for the start
3. do it for the fun of it and never forget that reason no matter how good you get
