Sabrina "killed" her mast... Tarifa Sabrina met her stars by chance: Daida and Iballa
 
Sweet Sixteen

"Champions are made, not born." 16 year old Sabrina Korsinek will have to focus on that. But she's already on the right way. With the help from her parents the young German managed to spend 3 moths at the "Maui Ocean Academy" in order to have enough time for windsurfing. Only a few days after her arrival in Maui in November Sabrina took another two "milestones" in the life of a windgirl with professional ambitions: she broke her first mast in the surf – and met her role models Daida and Iballa during a shopping trip...

Here is our sportive youngster in her own words:

"I started windsurfing 2000 in Turkey and I knew that I wanted to make it professionally from March 2002 on. I think this was the very moment that changed my mind. In my opinion this moment opened my mind for something… really great! I was able to learn so much, more then just a tack on a board for beginners. I praticed a whole summer before I went to Maui at the end of october. Windsurfing is such a great experience for everybody and especially girls should go sailing. Next year I will take part in the German Windsurfing Cup. I am going to do freestyle and racing."
