Crowned with multiple world titles, local sailor Valerie Ghibaudo-Arrighetti is THE French champion in the slalom discipline: Vice World Champion in 2008, World Champion in 2009 and Vice World Champion again in 2010!
Local to Six Fours where she trains regularly in the Bay starting from the spot of les Charmettes/le Brusc (headquarter of the club SFWO - EFE organiser), Valerie is pleased to promote the "European Funboard Expression" Championship and final of the EFPKT 2011 Tour. Even though this event is more focused on the waves and freestyle disciplines, Ghibaudo - aka the "rocket" - will be a proud supporter of the EFE this year.
"Why supporting a wave / freestyle contest, she says, while I am first a slalom addict? Just because windsurfing gathers all disciplines with only one link that unites us all: the" blue immensity ". All boardsports bring psychological and physiological benefits. For these reasons, I support this dynamic event that takes place, moreover, at home!"
Valerie will be present in the "backstage" of the third edition of the European Funboard Expression with her daughter Margaux, 10 years, who is as addicted to windsurfing as her mom!
