Shahar Zubari won a bronze medal for windsurfing at the Beijing Olympics, a “life-changing experience,” he says. His interest in the sport is thanks to some early coaching from his dad.
Zubari is a native of the Red Sea resort city of Eilat, and says it's very peaceful. "There's a lot of Eilat in me. I'm really peaceful in the way I windsurf, and I'm really calm. This is what makes me a better windsurfer."
