As a brief introduction to my first Blog in Cooler Magazine I’ll just run through a bit about myself…
I’m Lucy Robson, 25 years old and a windsurfer from Brighton.
I spend a lot of time training and doing sports but my biggest love and guaranteed reason to get out of bed in the morning is windsurfing! Since starting this sport just over three years ago it really has become my obsession and I have travelled all over the world indulging this and competing on both the national and international events.
People genuinely seem really intrigued as to how I could have got to my level in a short time but I think anything is achievable when you are motivated and work hard enough. So that is what I have done!
The last few months have been varied and fun – training in South Africa and then Maui for an international shoot and further PWA (Professional Windsurfing Association) events in Portugal and Gran Canaria ending in July.
And since then it has been back to paid work… (my other identity is that of a newly qualified lawyer)in order to get some money together for the next big adventure (although the official line is something different!)
So in the run up to Autumn I guess I am trying to maintain some work / windsurf balance! I keep fit with running and cycling when not on the water and I try to eat well, although admittedly I am not that consistent with this mantra! But that aside I am looking good in the new collection of t-shirts sent to me by Sevenx who keep me resembling action-cool! And plus I have the most enviable windsurf kit at my beach care of my friend and sponsor Tony Carter at Bluecrush who is forever helping me out!
Enjoy the new website and go do something fantastic!
