COMMENT Comments Off on Speak Spanish? Competition Results from Tenerife en Espanol

Campeonato de Espana, El Medano, Tenerife

Aleix Sanllehy 2nd Place
Eric Sanllehy 4th Place

“Celebrandose la segunda competición del campeonato de España de Olas en la playa de el Medano en Tenerife, y con las miradas puestas a ver que pasaria en la clasificación general de olas, el sabado 23 de julio empezaron las mangas.
La competición empezo con poco viento y con mangas donde contaban las 2 mejores surfeadas durante 15 minutos. Las condiciones estaban para vela de 5 metros y tabla de 82 litros, y olas entre “shoulder hight ” i ” head hight “.
Tras todo el dia de competición, con intervalos de espera esperando la mejor marea para las mejores olas y con un gran nivel en el agua, se pudo terminar la simple eliminatoria, sin haber posibilidad de hacer la doble el domingo a cause de las condiciones.
Finalmente el resultado de la competición acabó con Aleix Sanllehy en 2nd posición ( permitiendole así colocarse en 2nd en la general del ranking de olas ), 4ta posición para Eric Sanllehy ( mejorandose de la larga lesión de tobillo que ha sufrido este hinvierno, y pudiendo volver a empezar a competir ) y con la 9a posición para Cisco Garcia.

Ahora queda esperar a la próxima competición en Formentera, para ver como evoluciona el ranking de olas y esperemos que les siga yendo tan bién a nuestros corredores GOYA.”

If you’ve ever been down at Kanaha Beach Park, then you’ve probably seen these two girls rip it up massively! Regulars down the infamous Maui windsurfing spot, Kismet Kilbourn and Kristen Orth take their talents and test them against the fleet in the Maui Race Series.

Maui Race Series Schedule

If you’re around on Maui during any of these weekends, come on down Kanaha Beach Park. You can hit the action with the racers, or just kick back and watch it! Hit the water for a little personal sesh, come back and kick it some more. Either way, it’s a good time.

One thing’s for sure, Kismet and Kirsten will be racing! They’ll be right in the thick of things (as witnessed in one of the photos below… Kristin and Kismet taking on the boys).

COMMENT Comments Off on Keith on Cover of Windsport

Just got word from Windsport’s Pete Dekay that Keith Teboul hit the cover! Another classic Keith shot, full-on perpendicular. Love it.

This comes right at the time when Pistol River American Windsurf Tour competition is going off… Keith reported from Pistol:

Contest is going super good..lots of wind and some small waves. The first 2 days I was here it was 2 to 6 feet back side heaven. A little smaller for the event but guys like Kevin where on 4.2 so really good.

If Kevin Pritchard is on a 4.2, hold on to your hats, boy: it’s windy! Posts on the Pistol River Comp are sure to follow.

Hello everyone, we did a nice event last weekend with Escot in Costa Brava. They carry Goya sails , Quatro boards and MFC products. Super good event, the pictures don’t show any people cuz we took them after setting everything up, but we had a crowd there later on that day when it got more busy. In the night we did a dinner and movie premier (New Oxbow Movie). So pretty nice. Not big as the conditions did not cooperate but still a super nice weekend.

Tato, our Urugayan distributor has been competing in the SouthAmerican windsurfing champinship in Peru. The conditions were epic and Tato did great! Congratulation to him. It’s great to have such great support!
Here are his toughts:

I got second. I won the final of the double elimination, but then I was so tired after 3 heats of 20 minutes each (long waves), that I couldn’t do any good wave at the last final.
I’m still super happy about the result. There were at least 8 guys much better than me and lot of guys with same level, but I think I was really lucky on my heats.
Lot of photos and videos to share, but need to organice it first. Internet here sucks.. Thanks Laurent I will try to publish tonight.
Championship is an IFCA and ISAF event and I had cash price! This year and from now on the southamerican championship has only one stop per year. Next year in Chile and then Ibiraquera.
The event went alive on surfperu.tv with really good quality.
Now we are going to stay longer to make some videos. Good video frames from yesterday!! Attached some pics someone took during the competition.
Aloha guys and thank you for the support!!! I felt really proud going with my Goya/Quatro/MFC gear

COMMENT Comments Off on New distribution in Austria and great test day to celebrate!

We are  proud to officialize our new distribution in Austria by a  great team of people. It includes passionate trio: Michael Schmiederer, Berni Schermaier and famous local Tom Hartmann. They kicked in the season with a test day at Podersdorf and got everything they coudl hope for: sun, wind, crowds. All in one a great day to celebrate windsurf and our new partnership!

Weekend was great .. super windy and sunny and loads of people in podersdorf. We had to rig only 4.2s and 4.7s and were able to test all the  boards and sails that arrived Friday. All the gear was on the water and also other people took some testruns on the gear. Feedback was very positive so far.

I was pretty stoked about the One 94, this is a really nice board and a perfect tool for the strong wind days at the lake. I think that will be an interesting one for riders here at our spots.

We are happy to welcome Robin Goffinet ! Local Brittany ripper, Robin is a true reference in Wave sailing and spreads a positive attitude  on the spots!

Below is a report of his last session:

Session surprise printanière le mercredi 6 avril en baie d’audierne – Penhors – 29
Un mètre, 15nd side off et du soleil.
Après un dur hiver Breton pauvre en conditions, il n’en fallait pas plus à Robin Goffinet pour s’autoriser une pause entre 2 shape et aller à l’eau tester ses nouvelles voiles GOYA sur son custom perso (www.robsurfboard.com).
En espérant avoir de belles conditions fin avril pour la seconde étape de l’AFF à laquelle Robin participera peux-être, il révise ses gammes à la maison dans des conditions light wind qu’il affectionne.

COMMENT Comments Off on Nexus 6.4 Test in Windsurfing Magazine

“Loose friendly free-race sail that’s easy for anyone to hop ond fell dialed in.Offers excellent control and handeling for it’s size, prompting thoughts of light-air wave sailing. Great sail for an East Coast onshore ocean sailor or free rider. Six battens provide plenty of stability without creating a noticeable increase in weight.”
