WHY is a short movie about an unforeseeable change. The dutch windsurfer Amanda Beenen takes us back to the origin of her windsurf passion. In 2004 – where this story starts – horse riding was her favorite thing to do. Back than it was very unlikely that she would ever live the life she is living now. A traumatic accident changed everything and her life turned in a totally different direction. Almost a decade later, it is clear to see, that without this incident she would most probably still horse ride and would have never put her feet into the straps of a windsurf board.

filmed by: Jo Reitberger, Meikel Thies and Valentin Böckler.
February 2013, we are on the way for our first trip to Cabo Verde. We enjoyed 10 days on Sal, but we were happy to head further to Sao Vicente.
As we didn’t know yet what kind of a crazy hustle was expecting us. The Airplanes didn’t take our equipment, the regular boats where cancelled, because of Carneval, leaving the island seemed impossible. Fortunately we found a small container boat leaving to Sao Vicente. It was a crazy hard ride over the Atlantic. After 16h on the sea, we made it to Mindelo.
