Miguel “Miguelito” Bruggemann (V-05) is a 19 year old Venezuelan Slalom racer from El Yaque, Isla Margarita. He started windsurfing at the age of 12 and participated in a lot of national events during the past 6 years winning Venezuelan titles. Now he decided to to participate in the first Slalom World Cup in his career at Sotavento, Fuerteventura. We met Miguelito at the beach during the event days and he really enjoyed competing with the fastest riders in the world. 

The El Yaque local has big goals. He wants to become a professional windsurfer and win world titles one day. His home spot actually offers the perfect playground. It’s exactly the spot, where Ricardo, Gollito, Diony, Cheo, Yoli, Colette and many more grew up.  And all of them made it on the podiums at international events and World Cups. And the best won several world titles. So far Diony is the only rider, who managed to finish racing events with good results. Let’s see, if Miguel Bruggemann will be the first one from Venezuela, who will make it on podium at a Slalom World Cup.


“Migulito really likes high wind conditions. Stronger the wind gets, more he starts to fly!” Tom Brendt
