Maurizio Andreello, ZZSurf Manager: "I am really proud, I fought to get her in the water. Last year at Chams I saw Anna during a competition Techno, I quickly saw that had a certain setting, a grit. I Met David, Anna's father, at the beach and I congratulate you for the gifts his daughter sports. I don't know how but I got to the point of asking Anne if she would like to try a slalom. She replied Yes and on the beach I had my Starboard iSonic 134 and the LoftSail Racing Blade 8.6: with a tone of defiance I could take my gear … She did not make a turn and went into the water with 15/18 knots of wind. The first 2 jibes seemed of lay down and on the edges was lightning. I looked into his eyes his dad and told him I was born to race!
David's father has registered WGS 2018 Calasetta, one of the toughest competitions in recent years of windsurfing Italian, epic conditions, a challenge really hard for her that came last. I don't know what happened but this defeat gave her the strength to react, to train, to fight and decide to participate in the One Hour and IFCA!
A year ago tried my slalom and now goes on a world podium: I heard Daddy David and together we had the voice broken by emotion ... Anna is there!”
RIW: Hello Anna! Congratulations on your latest result and for the work done so far! How old are you, where you live and what you do in life?
Anna Baines: Good morning, thank you very much, I still can't achieve everything. I'm 16 and I live in Trieste, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, North East Italy. In life studies at the Liceo scientifico Galilei, where I follow a special program for student-athletes. Practical individual sports, which snowboard competition, that I carry on for many years now, and karate, a sport that allows me to train body and mind. Then obviously do everything they do the boys of my age, that is, spend time with friends having fun.
RIW: When and how did you start taking windsurf and why you started doing regattas T293?
A. B.: I started making windsurfing six years ago, on a lake in Tarvisio. I did it because I always saw my dad in the water that he enjoyed so one day I asked him to give me a tour with him on the table, and since that day I have not stopped. At the beginning I was doing it just because I had a good time, then when I grew up, a 13 years, I started feeling the need to confront someone and it was then that I started making Techno. I remember against my will, my dad took me to the circle of Marina Julia, by Ezio Ferin, and asked if it was possible to do races or something. Since the beginning, I entered the competitive team and from there I started to race around Italy.
RIW: with all the sports that there are today because you decided to invest your efforts in windsurfing?
A. B.: primarily because I've always liked outdoor sports and then being born in a city of sea water sports are prevalent, But unlike the optimist or laser, I have practiced, the windsurfing gives me a feeling of freedom. Also I always had my father as a reference point, and then seeing him in water at those speeds pushed me to do well and to commit myself to overcome it, so it became a real sport. Also when you start a sport like that becomes an addiction, You can't stop.
RIW: your escalation in slalom is recently. Why did you convince by Ross to persevere in this discipline and how you have lived the past year until world IFCA in Torbole?
A. B.: Let's say that at the beginning I was very hesitant, because I was very taken by the school, but then every time I went into the water with a slalom didn't want to come home. So I decided to do not only what I had to do but also what I liked. In addition Maurice told me to make at least one attempt because he saw something in me and the guys I described the emotions that try and then I said to myself “Let's do it”. I started out by trophy Nader that to be my first race didn't go bad, but I did not give the best of me.
Then we went to Sardinia to WGS where I faced challenging conditions. I am demoralized because I couldn't make the race I wanted, but everyone I have spurred and said not to give. Cosi’ just got home I immediately enrolled in the One Hour and the world. From the first I shot you can get good results that then came, but the world no.. I knew I brought home new experiences, but I never would have expected a silver.
RIW: What were the key moments for you of this world? When you realized you'd climb on the podium?
A. B.: the important moments in this World Cup have been many. First of all the hours preceding the entry into water, during which I had to handle alone, something I had never done this before in the world slalom, then surely the racing real, during which, as the days go by, are improved and finally I spent time learning about new fibula, young people from all over the world, with some of them I can keep in touch. I realized when I came back to be second only to Earth, I saw the banners they put an end to the race and I went to check the rankings. I honestly didn't believe it until’ I didn't hear my name.
RIW: a few days after this amazing result as you feel? What are your dreams and goals in windsurfing?
A. B.: What about. I'm super happy, because all the hours spent in the water before the World Cup to gybe are served. There are plenty of dreams, Perhaps unattainable. The goal this year was to participate and end global, and I would say that I reached .
