GUGLIELMO (WILLY) HINRICHSEN SKI AND SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR
Hi there, my name is Guglielmo (GOO-GLEE-el-MO), or simply Willy if my extremely complicated Italian name seems to hard to pronounce.
I’m a sport addict since the age of 6, and fun fact, my dad falsified my birth certificate so I could enter my first triathlon age already at the age of 5.
Anyway, I spent my entire life outdoors doing any kind of sport activity, if you name one, I have probably at least tried it!
In the past 10 years I have especially focused on snowboarding, skiing and surfing. Also, having done triathlon and winter triathlon at a professional level and I enjoy good old cross country skiing a lot.
Now I spend my winters teaching snowboarding and skiing, while in summer I teach surfing and I run an eco-friendly surfhouse in Portugal https://www.instagram.com/lemontree_eco_surfhouse/.
Whether you want to just have fun, step up your game in the park and in the powder snow or you just want to improve your fitness with some cross-country skiing I am looking forward to doing it all with good tips on hand and a smile on my face.
PS: As any other Italian I love to chat, so do not expect any awkward time on the chairlift because I have a lot to tell.
