Phil Soltysiak (CAN-9) and Kuba Kawalkowski from Poland spend part of their winter in El Yaque, Venezuela. Phil, who has Polish roots, has been for 8 years on the Windsurfing World tour, struggled a bit due to a shoulder injury, but recovered during the last season and seems to be 100% fit again. He already spent the last winter in the little village El Yaque on Isla Margarita and returned this winter.  

It doesn’t look very hectic on the water compared to other busy winter destinations. But the home spot of Gollito, Ricardo, Cheo and Diony offers great windsurfing conditions during winter and spring. And El Yaque is a colorful place, green palm trees with a white sandy beach, contrary to the black-and-white video.
