EFPT Lanzarote – A Preview

July 5th, 2015

In 2014 the European Freestyle Pro Tour was staged at Costa Teguise, Lanzarote for the first time. A spot that is famous amongst windsurfers and a place that former European Freestyle Champion and PWA competitor Antxon Otaegui and top level freestyler Tonky Frans call home. Already in the first year Antxon Otaegui and the crew of the Pro Center Lanzarote impressed with flawless organisation. To e...

Milos Beach Lefkada Freestyle Open – Day 4

June 1st, 2015

With high hopes for the thermal wind to one more time spoil the coastline with sailable conditions we started the day with the first possible start at 2.00pm. The sailors were all ready and highly motivated to continue with the double elimination that we started yesterday in the early afternoon.

The scheduled tow-in ...

EFPT Lanzarote – Day 3

July 11th, 2014

On the third day of the EFPT Lanzarote there has been light winds around the event-site throughout the whole day and therefor was committed a 100% to tow-in windsurfing, proving that nowind doesn't have to be a problem. 20 out of 23 competitors signed up for the two fleets. Really good to see was the high participation rate of sailors who usually are not into tow-in windsurfing and even riders wh...

EFPT Lanzarote – Day 2

July 10th, 2014

With a rather marginal forecast we started the day with the skippersmeeting at 10.00am this morning. Just as the day before though, an unusual weather situation over the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura led to a messed up windsystem and cloudy skies. Just before midday there were some dark clouds passing through bringing some sailable gusts. Jeremy Pl├╝ss (Tabou/Gaastra) and Hugo de Sousa (...
