Björn Dunkerbeck is perhaps one of the greatest legends of our time, not just within windsurfing but also a household name in many countries worldwide. Yet here we are, after the most successful and coveted career in the history of our sport the man is signing out of PWA competition. We’ve already had interviews with him in the past that suggest reasons why he has decided to take flight so we won’t press into too much detail. What we can say though is that this might be the end of PWA for Dunkerbeck but it is most certainly not the last we will hear of him, an exciting and promising new angle awaits, more on that soon.
Each day during the PWA Airwaves Noumea Dream Cup in New Caledonia we will be joined by Björn for a few questions to unveil all about his outstanding career, the final event and what’s to come. Consider this a celebration of the living legend as Dunky grabs the proverbial Boardseeker reigns a little.
Here is your chance to get your questions answered by Björn himself, all you have to do is simply write the one question you would like Björn to answer in the comments below and we will pick one to ask him each day. So go ahead and get creative.
Over to Björn Dunkerbeck…
BS: It’s your last PWA Slalom event, are you feeling a little emotional about this?
BD: So far all is good and it looks like we have some good wind this time as well!
BS: You did the long distance race just recently, will the PWA competition take place in the same area and were you feeling fast?
BD: Yes it was a good way to get rid of the jet-lag, it was a long journey here and the jet-lag can sometimes take a while to shake off. Yep the PWA slalom is also in the same bay where the long distance race started so I am a little familiar with the course area.
