“After a successful year in 2009, I’m getting ready for the upcoming competition season. At the moment I’m in Cape Town, training for freestyle on the lake and catching some waves at the local spots.
I will start the new season exclusively on RRD, and I’m very happy to be part of the full RRD family. The move has given me plenty of motivation for the season ahead, and I look forward to the first PWA tour stop.

The legendary twins from Pozo, Daida and Iballa Moreno, have dominated the windsurfing scene for over a decade and are now ready to defend their titles on a new team. With over 19 world championship titles combined, they have set a new benchmark in female wave and freestyle performance over the last 12 years. And they have just joined Severne.
In a truly revolutionary spirit, they are well known for supporting women in windsurfing and have set a new standard. Alongside their team mates Karin Jaggi (Severne) and Nayra Alonso (Fanatic, Severne), they occupied all top podium positions in the most challenging PWA events of the year such as Pozo and Sylt World Cup as well as the PWA overall ranking for 2009.
Daida commented: “We were really looking forward to this day. I’m totally excited to start the season with a fresh new team and great products. Over the past few years, Severne has brought great products into the market and shown off a successful team. It is very satisfying for us to be part of it. It is a perfect fusion between high-tech, light weight and our radical experience in the water. Severne is the only sail industry company who believe in girls performance and showed it by having the top four girls of the waves overall in their team. Now, more than ever, it’s time for ACTION!”
