I’ve been sailing at home quite a bit this year. It’s been windy and I’ve ben freestyling quite a lot. I wanted to get used to the new sails. It’s my home. I have my mum and my friends there. I relax most of the times and concentrate on my personal things. I still have my school, which is mostly for beginners because we don’t get many tourists anymore. I have my boat that I take out fishing or go out with my friends. Mostly time at home is more about downtime. The tourism stopped because the country is in really bad crises right now. We used to have direct flights from Europe ten times a week and it was easy for visitors. Now they’ve cancelled all the flights due to the situation and people are just put off because they have to fly through Caracas and change airport and get another plane, which is a hassle and a pain in the ass. People just really don’t want to do that. We used to have twelve windsurf schools and now we have three that are still surviving. Hopefully, soon there will be a change and everyone can come back.
“ I’m really fired up now. I want to win and do my best. Everything’s new. New sails, new boards. I’m excited every time I hit the water ”
