Premiere, Contest and sick at Sylt....

It´s already day five at the 2009 Worldcup at Sylt and we could already sail a full double elimination in Freestyle, for the first time at Sylt. In previous years we were happy to finish a Single elimination. The day before the Freestyle we had the premiere of the 4 Dimension Movie in the Sylt Cinema, it was great and the people were stoked !!! just great to see after the hard work in the past year.
The Freestyle was very hard, first the full onshore Conditions with Swell and very Choppy water plus light winds and than because i also felt very weak on the water. I felt very sick already a couple of days before the Competition and so it was very hard on the water and so I also lost earlier than I thought in the Single Elimination against Taty Frans who was sailing very strong. So I finished 5th with the other number two guys, Kiri and Tonky in front. That could be very dangerous for me since i could easily lose my number one ranking and so the worldtitle if i would loose one of the first Heats in teh Double eliminations. I was really nervous and when I saw the seeding for the Double and that I had to go against Brawzinho I didn´t feel much better... I started against Traversa in the Double with a good Heat and than I really had to do everything to win against Brawzo, even if I felt very weak now, each Move was hard but in the end I could win the close Heat and now had to beat russian Yegor to defend my Worldtitle, if there would be no more Freestyle here at Sylt. I could win this Heat and also the next one against french Akgaczyan, so I was very happy to be on fourth place now but against very strong Tonky Frans I had no energy left... In the end it was Taty who won the Double. I am very happy for him too...

Four Dimensions Interview....

Check my latest Interview for the Four Dimension Movie.. coming out soon !!!

Four Dimensions Team: Congratulations to your 1st place at the World Cup
Fuerteventura and your current leadership in the World Rankings. Season look like it
goes like planed?
Gollito: Yes I am so happy about all. Before the season started I was not sure. I watched movies from other riders which impressed me. Especially Kiri looked very
strong. After winning now the first 2 events I feel very happy and a bit more realaxed
and motivated to contiune this way during our last event on Sylt.
FD Team: Recently you have been travelling to Brasil. What was the reason?
Gollito: Yes true. After Fuerte I visited Dr. Dwarf8 Beat in Tarifa to do a clinic with him and went then back home. After only 2 days at my house i travelled all the long way to Brasil. Brasil is close to venezuela but still i traveled 30 hours. In Jeri (North Brasil)
we filmed the last part of the four dimensions movie.
FD Team: How was your time?
Gollito: It was great. Well i did not have much time but we were able to sail different spots every day. I also could land a few new moves wish was a great training too. The
most excisting was a helicopter ride to a new spot called icarai. We went together with Fabio the owner of ClubVentos and it was just great to see the coast line from above.
FD Team: Can you tell us wish new moves that were? And will we see them inside the movie?
Gollito: I landed Flaka into Shakas, Flaka into no handed shakas and Flaka into Ponch – but dont tell anybody  because I like to be the only one performing this moves on
Sylt. I guess Andre catched all on tape and so i am conviced to see them inside the
movie still I have to say that the plan is to keep our brasil part with more lifestyle and
traveling focus.
FD Team: Now you are back home. Whats coming up on your time schedule on the next 4 weeks?
Gollito: Yes thats right. I am in El Yaque right now spending and enjoying some time with my family and friends. This always gives me back the power for the tour. Then
in 2 weeks I am going to Paskowski´s house and we will drive down to Lake Garda to
do the ION Men contest. After I spend a few days in Andres house again and we get ready
for Sylt. There I try to win the 3rd world title and look forward to finally see the movie on big screen inside the cinema:-)
FD Team: Have you not seen any parts of the movie yet?
Gollito: I did see 2-3 parts and i got impressed. The way of editing and the angles of filming combined with action, story and lifestyle was great. But the full movie will
be even better i guess so i have to wait and see.
FD Team: Do you do any special training for Sylt?
Gollito: No not really. I am sailing once it is windy and trying to push my level. But more then anything is that i look to get energy back to bring my level on the point in
the most important minutes this year.
