My name is Toufik Elabdi, In 1994 I was born in Moulay Bouzerktoun, a small village in Morocco which is internationally known for its perfect wave riding conditions.
I learned to windsurf on my brother Abderazaq's gear and some years later Sailboards Tarifa provided me boards. Now, I am stoked to be part of Hot Sails Maui France team.
I have tried many windsurfing sails, but when I started with the Hot Sails Maui sails, I was really impressed. It seemed to me that I sail even more powerful and stylish than with the other sails I have tried.
Since several years I am sailing all the time on my local spot. In the last competitions held in Moulay, I got second in the "Moroccan Windsurf Tour 2012", fourth in "Hot Game 2013", and fifth in "Hot Game 2014". I have gained already a level permitting me to compete among the best wave-sailors of the world.
I know that I am still young and that I have to work hard to find a place in the worldcup scene, but I am convinced that I have the talent, the power and the motivation for it. I am training hard every day without losing the love to my favourite sport. My style is getting more and more special and individual and I can do almost all current moves in the waves: forward one foot, back loop one hand and one foot, goiter...
My goal for the nearest future is to follow the steps of my Moroccan friend Boujmaâ Gouilloul and try to compete on international level!
