About this Sailor:
I first saw a windsurfer at about nine years old, my grandmother and I were driving through Corpus Christi, TX. This fifteen year old kid beach started under the JFK causeway and then proceeded to fly away over the water. From that point on windsurfing had been on my to-do list.
I later learned to windsurf in Dallas, TX, as a young adult, and six months later found myself living in Corpus Christi where I founded the 'old windurfquest.net'. A little of this and a little of that later I have come almost full circle, and now work for the very shop where I signed up for my first lessons, Mariner Sails in Dallas.
I do not consider myself an expert, merely slightly advanced. This is perhaps an advantage, I can more easily reach out to the average windsurfer. But these skills are slowly increasing since I sail with others who are often better than I...oh well.
I suppose what drives me at windsurfquest.net is the spirit of an explorer, a need to share the natural high that this sport creates, and a desire to help local windsurfing communities grow the sport. Making windsurfquest.net successful gives me a natural high comparable to the high that comes from sailing.
