Ruben Petrisie is yet another talented windsurfer who learnt the tricks of his trade in the warm waters of Bonaire, Caribbean. Ruben, however, differs from the likes of the Frans brothers (Tonky, Taty and Choco) and Kiri Thode; choosing to sack off events after realising there’s more to life than the windsurfing competition grind.
Nowadays Rubes still windsurfs whenever he can but also enjoys a fruitful career as a hip hop artist and DJ – spitting riddims and rhymes all over the globe. He also gives back to the sport by organising international events and helping develop young windsurfing talent.
I got up close and personal with the colourful West Indian chap for All At Sea – Caribbean magazine; the interview is now live on their website and in the December issue – out now.
