-Kontatu zuk zeuk eta zure ibilbide profesionala buruz:

Nintzen Albany jaio zen, NY, eta familia oporrak hasi on Cabo Bakailao eta Jersey Shore windsurfa, baina ez benetan sartu Lake Champlain Nondik Vermont bizi arte, hasi 1998. Soooo haize da han ... zer gozoa leku bat!!

Lagun batzuk hartu ditut, eta aste luze bat vacation HATTERAS en 2001, eta nik ez dut sekula atzera. Lana udan irakaskuntza windsurfing dut egunean zehar, zen eta pizza egiteko eta platerak garbitzeko Lisa en at gauero. Windsurfed-en artean, ikasgai eta gauez jatetxe ondoren itxi dut. Gauerdiko saioak izan dira beti onenak!

Banekien aurretik, Hamar urte joan dira zuen, Gauzak aldatu zuen, eta denbora izan zen zaitez bat hartu enpresa mundura. Dut (nolabait) gutxik lortu mailegu bat, maxed nire kreditu-txartel, and started my very own windsurfing shop- Haize-NC! We have a great storefront in Avon and a pretty solid website business, too, which keeps me very busy. Dropping into mast high waves is a piece of cake compared to the realities of running a shop! But despite all of the stresses and worries, I feel super lucky to have a small family business with great customers, fantastic employees, and passionate industry partners. As far as I can tell, windsurfing is alive and well, and judging by the number of lessons we teach, it’s heading in a great direction!

My wife Anne and I just had our first baby- Catherine is a beautiful bundle of 5 month old joy for us! She hasn’t been out on a board just yet, but she sure does love the water! Balancing work, family life, eta denbora okerrena izan da benetako erronka bat izan da. Zorionez, ura hemen HATTERAS en lortzean da super bat kalean zehar eskuin olatu handiak denda batetik, erraza, eta hainbat windsurfing lanza minutu batzuk baino errepidean behera, beraz, oraindik ez dut gai izan saio bat hartu, han eta hemen!

-Zeintzuk dira zure leku gogokoenak sail batzuk:

HATTERAS guztiak eskaintzen ditu- laua ura freestyle eta Slalom lekuak, eta olatuen bela lekuak off aldean alboko edozein egun, beraz, inoiz ez dut kudeatzen aspertzeko hemen. Nire olatu sail uharteko gogoko Cove dago, baina lortzen bakarrik ez da ona behin edo urtean bitan, Oraindik dugu zorterik bada. Besterik, sandbars dira beti aldatzearen, horregatik mantentzen du gure behatzak on lekuak bila. Bilaketa esperientziaren zati da, eta, maiz, erabat hutsik sariak, olatu perfektua. Just you and your friends!

-If you could go anywhere in the world to sail, where would that be?

I don’t know, it’s a big world! Pacasmayo Peru is sounding pretty good right about now!

-Nortzuk dira zure babesle?

I’m beyond stoked to sail on Gaastra, Taboo, Chinook, Dakine, and NoLimitz gear. Today’s equipment is so good- it’s truly astounding!! I need to give my wife Anne a shout out here, too, for watching the shop and letting me go play every now and then!

-Zeintzuk dira zure inspirations?

First and foremost, my Family and Friends are some pretty awesome people, who make me want to be a better person. For windsurfing, the local crew anywhere I’ve ever sailed has always been inspirational to me, as well as some of my heroes ripping it up on the PWA Tour. It’s awesome that everyone is so accessible and helpful, too. We have a great community! Getting other people stoked up has always been a joy for me, too- the energy on the water is palpable and addictive when everyone is in a good mood and pushing themselves!!

-What is your favorite part about competing in the AWT?

Dunno yet! I’ll tell you in a few weeks. I’m very excited to see everyone descend on our little island, and can’t wait to share a wave with so many stoked and talented people!

-Zein dira zure helburuak 2012?

Takas!

-Palabras jakinduriaren?

Bring your bigger boards for our typical Hatteras conditions- light wind inside, coupled with lots of current can make it pretty tough to get out. You WILL schlog here, even when it’s blowing 30.
