About Me

My name is Jean Paul Da Silva De Goes and I'm 17 years old


I took my first windsurfing class in 2007 at the age of 8. In 2009 I competed for the first time in the Curacao Challenge 2009 (First Edition), winning 1st Place Rookies 10-11 years. That was the beginning of my windsurfing dream... and since then, I started practicing more often. But it was in 2011, when I started practicing on a daily basis, that my dreams grew bigger, wanting to become a Professional Windsurfer. 


Nowadays, I practice as much as possible during the week when the wind and school work permits, enjoying the windsurfing sport to the most. I love Slalom, because racing on the water gives me a lot of adrenaline especially when I'm close to other competitors in high speeds. I love to travel around the world to compete in windsurfing competitions, learn as much as I can from the other windsurfers and the Professional riders, have fun, and meet new friends.
