Karo van Tonder: the first female windsurfer to complete an 80-kilometer race

She is not just a pretty face. South African pro windsurfer Karo van Tonder is comfortable in all types of conditions.

Whether she’s competing on a downwinder, a speed sailing event, or slalom race, Tonder always pushes herself to the limit.

In September 2017, the athlete from Langebaan became the first woman on the planet to complete an 80-kilometer race – the Défi Wind Mauritius.
