Windsurfing Ambitions: My ambitions in windsurfing are to become a better sailor by pushing my limits in Speed, Slalom and Waves. Learning from more experienced sailors is part of this. I also would like to become more involved with the development of the boards and sails of my sponsors and be a positive role model for younger sailors. After getting a taste of PWA slalom in Vietnam in 2011 I planned to do as many events this year in 2012. I have purchased a round the world ticket including flights to Aruba which got cancelled. I would like to compete in as many events as possible. There is more information about me, pictures and videos on my website. http://bennewson.com/.
