An Interview with Josh Angulo
- Feb 2009 .... by Cheryl Thomas
Feb 27th 09: Following Josh’s win at the 2009 World Windsurfing Championships at Ponta Preta, I went to meet with him to ask about his plans.
We sat on a bench at Josh’s windsurfing centre and snack bar which is situated on the beach, on the east end of Santa Maria village. We both looked out over the white sandy beach to the blue sea watching windsurfers and swimmers taking time to enjoy the warm sunny climate.
Josh was the key person in bringing this event to Sal 3yrs ago. Josh says “It had been a tough but fulfilling road since the preparations started for the first event in 2007. Each year more time and effort had gone into work behind the scenes, it’s been getting better each time. Every year the event grows, this year even more people competed from various parts of the world and this brought more national and international media coverage”.
|PWA WORLD TOUR
Windsurfing is very popular on Sal, more so than surfing. The winds that blow across the islands attract windsurfers from all over the world, especially between December to March/April.

Runner-up Angulo was instrumental once again in organizing this event, ‘I’m glad we got this event together again. It means everything to me to have riders of this quality here, plus I’m happy for Kauli as he’s an exceptional sailor, so I’m just looking forward to seeing the contract signed to have the PWA back in 2009.’ Pease view some of the photos within 'Picasa' in the Photo Gallery.
The event which became a two day event this year but attacted windsurfers, other sports enthusiasts, locals and tourists to support and watch these athletes perform.
