With my 42 World Champion titles I’m the most successful athlete ever because: the stronger the wind, the higher the waves, the greater is my will to win.

When not on tour, you find me on Gran Canaria where I live with my wife Maria and my 4 kids (Alba, Liam, Martina & Daniel).

“I’ve been working at this sport all my life,” Björn enthuses. “It’s my passion and I live for it everyday. If I go without windsurfing for more than a day I get itchy and can’t wait to get out there. I’m basically a sports fanatic. If I’m not on the water I’m snowboarding or I’m mountain biking – but I can’t go without windsurfing.”
