- Out of Gran Canaria
Damned, this girl rips... When we had the chance to sail
with Nayra Alonso last year in Fuerteventura, it became obvious how comfortable Nayra
feels in really rough high wind conditions. Just like the Ruano Moreno twins Nayra calls
the windy shores of Gran Canaria her home, and her loops are just as radical as Iballas or
Daidas no wonder the likeable Spanish "windgirl" was able to finish top 3
last year in Sylt (PWA wave) for the first time. And most likely not for the last time.
Watch out everybody: Here comes Nayra.
