VLOG#31 | Racing In Germany

Just over a year ago, Lena Erdil (Starboard / Point-7 / AL360 / Chopper Fins) suffered a Lisfranc Fracture after landing a forward loop in Pozo Izquierdo. The road to recovery is proving to be a long one, as is normal with Lisfranc injuries, with the 30-year-old still battling to return to full fitness, but in the meantime Erdil has relocated to Germany where she is aiming to raise the profile of women’s windsurfing. 

Lena Erdil VLOG#31: “Welcome back to my VLOGS and Racing in Germany! 

I will try and keep them coming more regularly again, thanks for watching and subscribing to my Channel!

Special thanks for the footage in this Vlog to Valentin Böckler (Check out his Youtube Channel) and Kai-Nicolas Steimer.

This weeks Vlog is about the Multivan Windsurf Cup event in Damp last weekend. In the end we had only one day of slalom racing, but some really nice battles on the water and good conditions! I was racing with my large and medium boards always on my 7.1 Ac1. 

Since I've moved to Germany my mission has been to motivate more girls to start competing in Slalom. There's a great Windsurfing Cup Tour here, but unfortunately there hasn't been a women category for a long time! Having raced in Turkey only with other women all my life this was quite shocking for me to see. 

Here in Germany I have been racing with guys and even though it is of course great training for me, I understand how this is completely demotivating for a girl who is just starting to race. Having other girls to race with in Turkey and pushing ourselves while competing against each other has had a big impact on me as a racer. National tours is where it all begins. Racing against men the physical disadvantage of being less strong and heavy than most is one that is very hard to overcome, even when technically women could be better or just as good.  I hope I can be a part of developing the Girls windsurfing scene here in Germany.”

You’ll be able to see Lena Erdil in action again at the 2019 Waterz Festival, held in Hvide Sande, Denmark between 9th-14th September. For now though check out her latest VLOG @ https://youtu.be/-x6OTTccd4g

August 22, 2019, Waikiki, Hawaii – Surrounded by family and friends at the famed Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki, Robby Naish was inducted into the Hawaii Waterman Hall of Fame.

Learning to windsurf as a kid on Kailua Bay on Oahu, Robby has made an incredible career out of his pursuits on the water including 24 world titles in windsurfing and helping to pioneer kiteboarding, stand up paddling, foil surfing and the latest Naish development, the Wing-Surfer. His induction marks another accomplishment on his incredible career.

2019 marks the 10th year for the ceremony, which was founded and organized by the Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku foundation to honor those following in the footsteps of Duke and who have contributed their energy and passion to the ocean. The ceremony also serves as an opportunity for the foundation to raise funds for the children of Hawaii that they give scholarships and grants to.

Every year, a number of athletes are nominated for their contributions to ocean sports by their peers to join the Hawaii Waterman Hall of Fame. Robby joins an elite group of watermen including past inductee’s Duke Kahanamoku, Eddie Aikau, Rabbit Kekai and Brian Keaulana.

Those inducted perpetuate Duke’s spirit through their love of the water and acts of service for our small island communities. Robby spoke on his appreciation through a social media post stating, “Stoked to be inducted alongside Tracy Phillips Darling and Kai Lenny, joining a long list of Hawaiian watermen and women and raising funds and awareness for the Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation which provides scholarships to outstanding young athletes here in Hawaii.”
