We’ve talked to her on many occasions and we don’t get tired of it, and this is because this 25-year-old majorera doesn’t stop achieving success in her sport career. We’re talking about the rider Julia Castro Christiansen.
Last November she was crowned, for the fourth time in a row, as Spain champion in absolute Wakeboard, conquering the podium in the Spanish championship taking place in Marbella, in the female Open category, which gathered the largest number of participants.
With this title, Julia is the only and first Spanish athlete in history to achieve so many victories in a row, being also the seventh absolute of the world in Wake. “The season 2019 was quite alright: I took part in 8 competitions, 4 in kite and 4 in wake, getting a total of 5 podiums. I’m a Spain champion in Wake and runner-up in Freestyle kite, a good balance to end the year”
Julia faces the 2020 season with excitement, but she admits that “I’m facing an interesting challenge, as I start the year being injured, with a little pain in my elbow I’m trying to solve. On the other hand, I’m excited because I’ve decided to change discipline in kite, leaving kitepark and starting with waves”.
In February, Julia’ll take part in the kite world championship, whose first test will take place in Vert Cape, for which she’s training hard; in Wake, she’ll take part in the European (Germany) and World championships (Thailand), always taking the name of Fuerteventura, her island, to the top.
