On the official PWA World Tour website has written a gigantic report about the PWA event in Alacati. Antoine Albeau secured his postition in the tour and is 100% sure he will be the champion this year. With only 1 event it’s not possible to overtake him.

The next PWA World Cup event will be in Sylt Germany from the 25th of September until the 5th of October.

Josh Angulo also has posted a very complete report about the event. It’s great to read how positive he is about the dutch windsurfers Markus Bouman and Dennis Littel, who are also part of the MauiSails team.

A lot of wind!

by Maarten on August 13, 2008

There are a lot of people that are not happy with this “shitty” weather in the summer but I have a totally different opinion. I can’t remember that we had this much wind in august as this year. Get ready for some stormy weather!

Update: The wind was really hard! Unfortunately my windsurfing is not suited for this windy circumstances. I was more swimming in the water instead of windsurfing.  A bit disappointing. My quiver really needs an update. At the beach we measured wind speeds of 42 knots! Check this small movie for an impression of the stormy weather.
