Marcillio Browne

Tell us about yourself:
I am 22 born in fortaleza, live in Maui nowadays and started windsurfing back in 1994.

Tell us about your career.
I started to compete professionally in 2005, won my first event in 2006 it was a indoor jump in belgium , in 2007 I was freestyle world champion. In the past few years i have changed the direction of my career, I am focusing full time on wavesailing which is by far my favorite discipline and also by moving to Maui I am slowly getting into sailing bigger waves too. Its a really good balance there as I always have family and friends around. For me results are important but also i want to have the time to just travel and sail the best conditions i can find and really push myself to try something new or have a goal every time I go out. Right now I am the happiest I have ever been and looking forward for the future !!!
