The’ Sailing Association Senigallia interview Eugene Marconi (Challenger Sails, 99Internetional, AL360, LSD up, Prolimit), Italian and World Champion Freestyle U20 2018.
AVS: Hi Eugenio, many know you for great victories you've gotten in past seasons but, like every windsurfer, you are elusive, appear on the beach a few seconds before going overboard, run putting the wetsuit and away in water. Last season was a crescendo of success and satisfaction in freestyle: in June Italian champion under 20 and at the end of July PWA world champion U20 in Fuerteventura. Tell us about how did this passion for windsurfing and freestyle in particular, a discipline that seems unusual for the average condition of Senigallia.
E.M.: Hello, my passion for windsurfing me gave it to my father. In six years in Greece in Lefkada island I started this wonderful experience. A 12 years I have known Foivous Tsoupras, always in Lefkada, a Greek-German boy who I was passionate to freestyle.
AVS: How do you train? That spot you prefer to attend and what equipment you use?
E.M.: Obviously every time it does wind I try to be in the water … the maneuvers I learn by watching video then I try and try again in water, Sometimes I ask advice to Pro!
In addition to Senigallia in the spot of Sailing Association Senigallia where I go out regularly, in the area are fond to spot del Conero (Portonovo and Sirolo-Sassi Neri) and the spot of Gabicce-Vallugola. Medium haul I move often in Ravenna (Porto Corsini and Marina di Ravenna), a Fossacesia, Termoli and Civitavecchia. In recent years Easter workouts are in Sardinia and the winter in Tenerife.

AVS: who are the most fearsome opponents? And what is the relationship between the athletes in? What climate you create events?
E.M.: the most fearsome opponents will discover them in the water ... Looking back at last year's races certainly redoubtable New Caledonia will be Short Dumond, European champion and world under 16-17. The climate with other athletes is playful and when to expect the wind usually you spend time together laughing and joking.
AVS: given your young age the question must, for a sportsman to practice their passion is forced to long journeys, How to combine sport and study?
E.M.: It is not easy to combine the study with sports considering that I attend a school quite challenging ... However my passion for windsurfing helps me to accept long hours of study because then I know I can just make out with my wind maneuvers in water.
AVS: lifestyle and passion that count in windsurfing today?
E.M.: are both important. In international competitions do you realize that the best are those who have talent, passion and a suitable lifestyle.
AVS: sports and social. The freestyle is a spectacular discipline, the accounts of the best athletes are carefully followed both by fans and by professionals. How do you deal with social, which do you prefer? How do you take photos and record videos in wind and wave conditions often extreme?
E.M.: I consider most suitable for young people but obviously public Instagram the material on Facebook that is perhaps the most mature social windsurfing followed by ... For photos and videos let you have my father that sometimes follows me even in water with action cam.
