#19 Oda Johanne - „Where I’m from everybody’s equal”

Oda Johanne Broedholt is a household name in women's freestyle windsurfing. If it wasn't for Sarah-Quita she’d probably have a couple World Titles to her name. Not bad for someone that almost became a professional handball player! In a conversation with Maciek she dives into all the similarities and differences between the two sports, as well as her analytical prowess, what would it take for her to beat the Queen, and of course gender equality in windsurfing.

Welcome to ‘The Windsurfing Podcast’ this is where we are going to dive deep into the world of professional windsurfing. World Champions, legends, shapers, activists, industry members, media people… they will all get grilled by Maciek Rutkowski – a professional windsurfer himself, PWA race winner, podium finisher, and, by his own admission, the sports biggest fan. Sit back, grab a drink, and enjoy an exclusive look into the minds of windsurfing’s most interesting people.
