How I started: I came to the beach one day and I saw Remko de Weerd sailing. That showed me, that with a lot of practice on the water, I´ll be able to learn everything. And that´s what I´m always aiming for, to sail with the supe-reasy style like Remko and Cheo Diaz and powerful like Ricardo Campello.
Best windsurfing day in my life: Almost all days in El Yaque I like a lot, but I had really nice days in Tarifa as well.

Other sponsors beside Fanatic: North Sails, ION, Dwarf8, Chocofins,, ElYaqueNews
My Goals: Improving my results at the PWA Worldtour and finally show what I can do;;)))
My Slogan: Live for the day;;))

INTERVIEW, November, 07:

Full Name: Yolanda Freites de Brendt

Age: 31 yrs

Height: 1.65 m

Eye Colour: Brown

What are your best features? I think that’s my smile and my positive attitude to live life every single day.

Where are you from? I’m from the Island of Margarita in Venezuela

What is work? For me it’s the beach, sun, wind and my windsurf gear.

What do you do in your spare time? I love to go to the movies, have BBQ´s with friends and enjoy beach life. I don´t have too much spare time, I just love my job, I love the sport!

What could a guy do to impress you? A big show on the water and then off the water with a nice striptease…!!

Have you had any celebrity boyfriends?
No, but of course I would have loved to have one.

Does a fellow windsurfer make a good boyfriend?
Of course, I have already got one at my side.

What is your most memorable achievement to date?
The most memorable achievement was when I started windsurfing not so long ago and I always wanted to be a pro sailor and compete on the PWA which I did and then I finally learnt to swim!

What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?First when I came from flatwater El Yaque to Pozo where I had to sail in mast high sets. But then this was topped when I sailed 65 Knots in Tarifa…and all this without being able to swim.

Are wetsuits sexy?If the person doesn’t wear underwear, of course.

What is more important: money or member?
For me money is not so important, just necessary for living.

Finally, you tell your boyfriend you are going sailing for a quick hour. You come back 4 hours later. What do you say to him? Wow, what a nice day, I just had the best session of my life.
