Matt Pritchard, Gaastra and Tabou Teammanager, hooked up with Sarah-Quita Offringa (ARU-91) and took an interview , who is actually leading the current PWA Slalom and Freestyle tour! She is definitely extraordinary good in two different disciplines. Recently she won all three Carribean PWA tourstops. 2 times the freestyle and one time the slalom. Sarah-Quita, who is only 20 years old and actually studies in Holland, for sure did not expect to be so succesful when entering the worldcup circus back in 2006. But Sarh-Quita already started the sport of windsurfing, when she were three years old, had a bit of a break and fully went on with the age of nine. Practice makes perfect!
MP: Way to go over there Sarah-Quita!!! Awesome job, tell us about what it was like sailing in your home waters- did you feel pressure to win?
SQ: Hi Matt Thank you ! Since I started on the PWA it’s been a dream off mine to have the PWA coming to Aruba. The pro’s were telling me so many stories of how they used to race on my island and have a good time ! Finally this year the government gave the green light to host a PWA event here. YEAH ! Freestyle and slalom. So just having all the pro’s sailing here at my homespot was already big for me!
No, I didn’t have more pressure than usual to win. The pressure that I had was my own, because I always want to perform well.
