AMP Scholarships (Do your thing) - Vote for Thomas Davies, freestyle windsurfer

My thing is competitive windsurfing - To share my passion, commitment and dedication to freestyle and wave windsurfing with the whole of New Zealand.

The nature of my goal
Windsurfing is what I do, what I love and who I am. Windsurfing gives me freedom. Since taking up the sport of windsurfing a few years ago it has changed the course of my life forever. It drives what I do, what I want to achieve and where I want to go. It has taught me about places I had otherwise never heard of and introduced me to people from every corner of the world. Windsurfing is a sport for every type of person; adventurous, cautious, young and old there is something for everyone. I want to change the perception of windsurfing in New Zealand and encourage more people to get involved in a hugely diverse sport. Vote now

When I got into this sport there were not a lot of freestyle windsurfers in Auckland or around New Zealand and there were even fewer young windsurfers among them.

There is very little support and encouragement for young windsurfers outside of the windsurfing schools. I want to be able to coach and support young windsurfers wanting to get involved in freestyle or wave windsurfing. In order to do this I need to get my sailing to the highest level possible and also learn how to coach advanced windsurfing skills and moves. Hopefully, with your help in reaching the very top of competitive New Zealand windsurfing, we will be able to keep people interested and push this fast developing sport to new and exciting levels.
