We are coming out with the a project dedicated to the girls. Do you want to be the first to announce something or should we keep it still secret to who is reading us now?
It would be an honour to announce it! I’m so excited about this project and really stoked that Point-7 is interested in developing the girls side of things. In 2015 we are launching the #point7girls team, we will be developing a special girls line of the existing sails, which will have different colours, different lighter materials and lower boom cut outs and clew holes. We’ll also have some special matching thin booms and other apparel, so be prepared to get wowed by the most stylish sail and apparel combos ever! We will also be launching a special new Facebook page where we will share tips and tricks about equipment settings, our latest travel stories as well as some special training tips on land and on water!
It’s hard for the pro men riders to have relationships with girlfriends due to the continuos travelling, is it the same for the girls? Are you single?
I’m in a relationship with my boyfriend Simon for 4 years now, I know it can be really difficult because of the continuous travelling, but I’m lucky as Simon also works in Ortakent and his job is flexible enough to allow him to come to some of my competitions. As he also works in tourism, so in the winter, he is free to travel for a few months. I think it’s definitely hard to find a girl/boyfriend who can share the lifestyle except for fellow competitors I guess.
Which will be your first event this year?
Well the official event calendar hasn’t been released yet but I think it might be Korea in May.
