Alex Halank: the sail does the rest

When a young boy of only 6 years old starts windsurfing, there's a big chance of having a world champion a few years after.

The young Australian Alex Halank is now 8 years old and is already showing why he won the 2010 Starboard Prokids IFCA Freestyle World Championship, in the under 11 division.

Watch how he shows his freestyling and flowstyling in Bonaire.

Halank has been training in Bonaire with local kids, watching and learning from Caesar Finies, and being instructed by Ro Mayer.

Go for it, Alex!
