The Canadian windsurfer Ingrid Larouche has been dominating the American Windsurfing Tour for the last couple of years by winning one overall title after the other. Although she started her competition career pretty late with the age of 30, she was able to collect many podium finishes and victories since then. Last year, after 4 years doing the AWT events, she wanted to try something new and although she had never sailed in side-onshore port tack conditions before, she showed up on the Canaries to participate in the PWA wave events.
“It’s hard for someone from North America to make it to Europe and be supported. I really do it for the love of the sport and the thrill of the competition.”
