How did you start windsurfing?
I don’t even really remember my first time on a windsurf board, both my parents windsurf and windsurfing has been in my life since I was born. I think my dad first started teaching me to windsurf when I was around 8.
When did you think to compete?
I started competing in national races in turkey when I was 13, it was just for fun at the beginning, but I quickly started to beat some of the best women in Turkey at the time and it really motivated me to pursue first place! My first race abroad was the ‘mondial du vent’ when I was 17, in France, it was so fun meeting all the professionals and the race was so windy, I absolutely loved it and decided I wanted to do more, what could be better than travelling the world windsurfing and competing!?! From there it has been a long but very fun journey to being where I am now!
