Cyril Moussilmani entered the final race of the event knowing that he had to finish in the top four or better to have any shot at winning the title. If Moussilmani finished outside the top four, then Albeau would automatically be crowned world champion. And that was precisely what happened. Albeau played his tactics and made a smoother exit to the opening gybe to gain second place. Ben Van Der Steen showed no sign of nerves as he produced another…

    Well its been a huge week of racing for me and everyone. The trade wind's have been strong every day, which have made for three days of hectic racing. The afternoons have been the strongest winds around 20-25knots constant. Tomorrow is the final day Over the last two days we have had another five eliminations. I have had a mixture of results where I am finally starting to feel comfortable with the location and wind. Tomorrow is the last day of racing where it is expected to be the windiest day so far (around 30+knots). Check out the live feed on the PWA website for all the action. read more

    Lake Neusiedl by Kerstin Reiger Since we returned from Brittany and our trip to Paris – it was the first one and it was fantastic – back home to Austria, the windsurfing conditions were excellent. Normally it’s really foggy during November. It’s the real start of the cold period, the pre-winter season. This year it’s a bit different. A lot of wind from southern and south eastern direction hit the lake, kept the water temperature high and the temperatures during day and night, too. We didn’t have any snow fall yet or temperatures below zero during the longer…

    The time runs quick! 6 days are over at the La Torche PWA Worldcup. During the first 6 days we saw a lot of swell breaking at the beach of Pors Carn next to the Pointe de la Torche. It’s my first time spending time in Brittany and it’s definitely worth to visit this place. Renting a little stone house around 12 km from the event site was definitely the right decision. It’s located in the middle of the green country side. No traffic, just a main building, a horse breeding and a nice green cultivated garden next to the little stone house. So relaxed. We bought fresh fish at a…

    The beach is beautiful and the scenery with over mast high breaking waves is just breathtaking. It’s so great to see breaking waves like on the first day here in Brittany. And Ricardo Campello had nuts and made it out  in just a few knots of wind. He was surfing the waves. Big respect.  I really hope we will see more wave action and get proper wind for a few races during the next 8 days. Most of the big names are here to compete in the 6th PWA Slalom tour stop of the 2014 season. Here are a few shots from the trip to La Torche and the first day at the French land’s end with a…

We hopefully will see great wave action. Perhaps triple loop attempts. Robert Teriitheau is in the house! 64 riders will compete on the Slalom course with more than 40 % riders from France. Will we see a French winner or will Arnon score big again and climb up on top of the podium. I am really happy that I got a wild card again. This is my premiere in Brittany and it’s a great comeback…

    The time on Sylt is really nice so far. Really warm weather, a nice atmosphere on the beach and a lot of positive vibes. The windsurfing conditions were nice in the beginning. and we did one full round of Slalom racing in rough conditions with waves and light wind. Unfortunately I was not really windsurfing as good as I expected. I went on too small gear in my first heat. It was a wrong decision to choose the medium board and 7,8m. In the second round I started well and arrived together with Gunnar Asmussen in 3rd at the first mark, but then jibed too wide at the third mark and lost the safe…
