One year has passed since the German windsurfer and film maker Andre Paskowski passed away. His parents put together a slide show with some special moments of his life.
We first met Andre in El Yaque in March 2004, where he was one of the protagonist of our DVD production “7 Sons of Freestyle” together with Gollito Estredo, Remko de Weerd, Ricardo Campello, Normen Guenzlein, Antxon Otaegui and Cheo Diaz . He was sitting in the jacuzzi of the Ipanema bar (which was the bar of Ricardo Campello’s mother) and told us about his plan to compete on the PWA world tour in 2005. During the filming process of the DVD, he told us that he wants to start with own movies, too and his first big movie project was Wet and Salty one year later. From these days on, filming became a big part in his life and together with his team he created amazing movies.
Andre was always a part of the Continentseven world as professional sailor, film maker and business man. He was very passionate about everything he did and was driven by the idea to do everything perfectly and at the same time.
The last time we met Andre was in Pozo (Gran Canaria) on the 11th of July during the PWA World Cup and we did a long interview with him about his upcoming movie “Below the surface”. The interview shows a man, who still had plans and the will to fight. One of the most impressive sentences out of this interview was: “My mind is occupied with something beautiful.”
We did so many interviews with André. This was unfortunately our last one.
