The ultimate wave sailing spot in Gran Canaria was blowing its trademark howling winds, gusting to almost 50 knots. Additionally, Pozo had perfect ramps allowing windsurfers to jump and fly. In the Men's single elimination final, Alex Mussolini and Köster lined up for a spectacular show. The Spanish opened the hostilities with a perfectly executed forward, but the German sailor answered with a planing double forward.

It was taken from the Jimbaran beach and I needed to max out the zoom of my camera to find out that there were some ridable waves over to the edge cliffs of the bay.There's actually a guy crouching down in the barrel of that wave and the sequence shows he's gonna come out of it.This was the second day of the big swell (Sunday) and I went to check that place out. The waves looked amazing with a take off close to the rocks that reminded me a lot of China Walls in Oahu, but since it was one of the very few…

I survive the night but don't get anywhere close to getting around the course. Its blowing the dogs off their chains.

Gran Canaria delivered this year 100% and got waves, too. Philip Köster went for the triple, almost landed a double Forward off the lip in the same wave and Daida Moreno went for the double Forward. Almost all wave riders stepped up in skills from last year and it was impressive to follow the action at the high wind arena of Pozo. Can’t expect it to return to Gran Canaria soon.

The leaves are growing , the wine, too and beautiful red corn poppy flowers already swing in the the gentle breeze on the flat fields around the lake. The temperature of air and water is constantly above 15° during day time. Once an experienced lake local told me, when water and air reach 30° in total windsurfing gets comfortable and relaxed. I just can agree and stored all my long sleeve wetsuits, booties, gloves and hoods down in the basement.

    During the past days we saw excellent conditions at Lake Neusiedl. Northern, North Western and South Easter wind kicked in at Podersdorf. The wind was extremely steady and strong on several days. I had the chance to sail a lot on the new Reflex 4 in 7,0/7,8 and 8,6. Even 6,2 would have worked during one day, but prefered to sail to the max with 7,0 and iSonic 107. I crashed on a downwind run extremely hard and was lucky not breaking any gear. Just the harness line is out of funktion. Luckily the line broke …   The result of a really hard crash.   107 and 7,0 is a nice combo.

    The Australian pro racer and computer- and videoexpert Sean O´Brien filmed some really cool clips while the PWA Slalom at Jinha, Costa Brava. I talked about my lightwind board, the iSonic 117 wide and why I am so convinced choosing this board. Recently I won the Croatian Championships only using this model in 7 to 20 knots of wind with 9,2 and 8,6. Read an article here! In between the interview Sean put some clips from the this year´s racing at Jinha. Thanks a lot Sean for your great effort and so nice editing!!
