Like every winter the Austrian windsurfer Birgit Rieger and her boyfriend Jürgen spent almost 2 months in Western Australia. Birgit, who is 41 years-old, had her PWA World Cup debut in 2015 and has been competing in the PWA wave and freestyle events on the Canaries since then. Her best places were a 5th place in Fuerteventura and a 7th in Tenerife in 2017 and she is constantly improving her skills. We guess Birgit is the best example, that it’s never too late to follow your dreams.
Birgit is a freelance graphic designer (by the way she designed the first C7 T-Shirt collection some years ago) and tries to make it on the water as often as possible. She loves wave riding and therefore she rented a camper van to be flexible and to not miss any good conditions at Australia’s west coast. Check out the clip with Birgit’s best action.
