Balz Müller is already well known for his wild and progressive approach to windsurfing. An approach that seems to be catching on as people throw themselves into more and more crazy rotations these days, not least in the recent Siam Park Expression Session, check the video of that here.
What's up Balz, let's cut straight to the point, you killed it in Fuerteventura during the PWA event (9th place), tell us about the event and how stoked you are?
Sure I’m happy about the result, but you know in the end I just don’t want to be injured.
What were your best 3 moves of the event?
The clew first backie without wind and waves was definitely my highlight, but to be honest the conditions didn’t let me jump the moves I expected to do.
Bad news, you broke your hand, how did you manage that and what's the recovery period looking like?
It’s my first big injury in windsurfing. I got a spin out while ducking the sail in the lagoon of Fuerte. I just remember the crash was like a huge explosion and I knew straight away something is broken. Well, the next month I’m going to do something totally new; no sport at all. For me that’s pretty hard. So now I play lego windsurf and dream for a nice session soon.
Once you are fixed, what's the plan for the coming months?
I’ll start working again as soon as my hand is fixed, this will be for sure a good recovery for my muscles. So I hope to be ready for the winter training.
You've just released another wild clip, Surfiesta, have you got anything more planned, not just from Fuerte but for the future?
I like the way of progression with video analysing and I’ll try to get different views of windsurfing.
Thanks Balz, anything you would like to add?
I wish to all of you no injuries, and lots of wind. And I don’t like interviews.
