    Dennis Klaaijsen has improved his world record for the longest non-stop 24-hour windsurfing marathon. The Dutch windsurfer sailed 728 kilometers (393 nautical miles) around Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. Klaaijsen decided to start the challenge in the Grevelingen lake, just like he did last year.

This time he improved his own mark by more than 115 kilometers (62 nautical miles). "Last year I made 630 kilometers in 24 hours, but I knew someone could do it. My…

  • Warming-up for better windsurfing

    13 Aug 2014 | 1:36 am
    Warming up improves muscle reaction time, as it increases both the speed and the force of muscle contractions. Windsurfer and health promoter Henrik Beyer leaves us a few simple, yet effective exercises. This is especially valuable for windsurfers as they constantly manage sudden movements and unexpected situations as well as occasional wipeouts that are natural parts of sailing. "Improved muscle reaction time may be crucial for performance when little stands between success and failure when windsurfing," underlines Henrik Beyer, author of "Health & Fitness for Windsurfing."
  • Ricardo Campello delivers a tow-in windsurfing show

    12 Aug 2014 | 2:58 am
    Professional tow-in windsurfing is back in the spotlight. Ricardo Campello proved that artificial waves are the perfect ramps for wind acrobats, in the blue lagoon of the Siam Park, in Tenerife. The 2014 Dunkerbeck Eyewear Tow-In Exhibition invited the top eight sailors, plus three wildcards, to showcase their aerial arsenal in front of hundreds of spectators. There were remarkable rotations, painful-looking crashes, near-misses with the wall, and super high jumps with the precious assistance of a jet ski. After the early rounds, Campello, Robby Swift and Leon Jamaer moved to the final.

  • Kite and windsurfing regulations

    admin
    8 Aug 2014 | 5:09 pm
    New kitesurfing and windsurfing safety regulations have been introduced in Western Australia - essentially requiring lifejackets to be worn and a variety of other safety devices to be carried if operating more than 400m offshore in unprotected waters. It appears that the local kitesurfing organisations have agreed to this, its not clear if the windsurfers were actually involved (from the official site) - so it could be that this has been driven largely by kitesurfing safety issues. Something to be aware of. read more

My 10.0 was a bit too much as I was doing everything to depower most of the raceI sailed the top of the course and had a good idea of my plan for the race. Immediately gybe after the top mark and get into the flood for the long haul downwind. The mixed fleet of foiling kites, kite course boards & formula boards started on starboard & immediately out of the gates the foiling boards were off like…

    As if the previous 30 mile+ day of overpowered racing wasn't enough- the RC decided to do 3 marathon races across the San Francisco Bay for the 2nd day of the Ronstan Challenge.The course was a start near the St. FYC to a quick upwind mark near the Presidio shoal- across the Bay to a boat stationed at yellow bluff, straight downwind to Harding Rock- then across the bay again to a buoy at Ft. Mason and finally another quick upwind leg to the finish.Since there was a lot of reaching and the wind was supposed to come up quickly- I went for the smaller ml89 formula board and 60cm kashy fin with…
