The more we say it, the more it happens, the sport is just growing with these new kids coming with a lot of energy and good attitude.
We have heard amazing things about these two kids, Philip and Kyra. Based at Vargas beach, in Gran Canarias, the brother and sister were meant to be on the water as soon as their bodies could hold onto the boom.
Now the have launched their websites:
www.philip-koester.de and www.kyra-koester.de
We have seen amazing pics and videos from Philip (NeilPryde/F2), and honestly, we think he is one of the most promising kids at the moment. With powerful grown-up style, he does pretty much everything on waves at his home spot: backloops, one-handed backloops, pushies, ttp-pushies, takas, shakas off the lip, etc… and rumour has it he is already landing pretty sweet doubles!!!! He is only 14!!!!!!!! For God sake!!!!
Kyra has taken it a bit slower, but she shows the same talent. She hasn’t been able to sail as much as her brother, as she is a star in athletics in Spain: she is champion from the Canary Islands and is in the top 10 from Spain. So due to her tough and strict training plans, she only gets to sail a few times a week. But anyways, she is already riding quite powerfully, trying forwards and backloops with no fear.
Can anyone think of some other brother and sister, in the windsurfing history? I think they did pretty well, didn’t they? Will Philip and Kyra be the next Bjorn and Brit?
