Oct ’12: Leysa Perotti

What are your best features?

For sure my smile, and I guess my latino’s body too !!

4/5 Not going to disagree with that one.

Where are you from?

Argentina, but I live mostly in France and Brazil(Ibiraquera.. top spot of waveriding)

4/5 Can we join you?

What is work?

I’m Sushi Chef half a year in France in my own restaurant, and the other half I’m windsurfing and looking for new windsurfing spots around the world!!

5/5 A travelling personal chef sounds good to us.

What watersports do you do?

I windsurf and go SUP surfing.

4/5 Not bad

What is your most memorable achievement in watersports?

I guess windsurfing with my friends at Ho’okipa, doing my first forward loop during my first year sailing on the waves…. and catching my first mast high waves at Ibiraquera sailing until a crazy sunset, and with a full moon!

5/5 Wish we were there!

What should a guy do to impress you?

Smile!! Be funny…. and for sure sail better than me! I’m a “latina” I need a “macho” hahaha!

4/5 If macho’s what you need, we’re sure we can accommodate.

What makes a windsurfer a good boyfriend?

I don’t need to explain what I’m doing on the water…..

3/5 Fair enough

What qualities would your perfect man have?

Funny, patient ….. and radical!!

2/5Funny, check. Patient, check. Radical, not sure we can manage that!

What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?

Well… not always, but usually guys let me take the waves!!!

3/5 Chivalry isn’t dead!

What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

When I left my little life in Argentina  to achieve my dream and go to MAUI to learn waveriding!

3/5 Pretty awesome, but we want wilder!




What do you prefer and why?
a)freestyle sessions: slow to start, then lots of spinning and contorting your body into crazy positions.

b)speed sessions: super fast, high adrenaline but it’s over before you know it

c)wave sessions: a nice smooth ride, where you’re in control and can try something new if you’re feeling adventurous

Absolutely C, if we are speaking about windsurfing…

4/5 As if we would be talking of anything else.
