Daida MORENO (ESP)Daida MORENO (ESP) is well known as one of the world's most outstanding female windsurfers and in 2006 again demonstrated why she is a formidable opponent on the circuit. Winning the PWA Women's Freestyle and Super X world championships capped an exceptional year for MORENO.

The season began for MORENO at the 2006 London Boat Show where the top windsurfers gathered for indoor competition in jump, freestyle and slalom disciplines. MORENO cleaned up taking first place in all three. Continuing round the PWA circuit, she won the Guicho Wave Contest, the Teguise Super X World Cup plus the freestyle and wave events at the Pozo Grand Slam. Second place at the freestyle event at the Fuerteventura Grand Slam was a rare lapse as MORENO went on to secure the two PWA World titles to add to an already extensive collection that includes the World Cup Wave title which she clinched right at the start of the nomination period in October 2005.

MORENO's passion for windsurfing is further illustrated by the training camps she runs with her twin sister Iballa to encourage girls into windsurfing and improve their skills.
