What was your childhood dream? To be a Pro windsurfer, but growing up in Shrewsbury (2hrs from the sea) I never thought I would be where I am today. It’s crazy really, I mean I remember watching the indoor windsurfing with Robby Naish, Nik Baker etc. in the 90’s and dreaming of one day doing that (never thought it would be possible) so to win the PWA in Poland was definitely a childhood dream come true!
