After having a great time training this winter in Brazil, CapeTown, Venezuela and Maui the Season is now underway full force.
The first event this year was Podersdorf. After waiting almost one week for wind we finally got a result on the last day. Conditions were not easy but it was the same for everybody. I used my Duke 5.9 and Skate 100 as it was quite gusty/light and I did not want to risk using a smaller sail even if it helps with all the new moves. In the End I finished 5th, which is a good base for PWA and EFPT as the event counts for both rankings.
The Posada Windjeri Europe Trip:
We started last week in Munich and this year both Edvan and Chico Bento (pictured left) are on board. First, we'll go by car all around Europe to participate in all EFPT Events, and then fly to the Canary Islands to participate in both Freestyle World
Cups held there. The start in Podersdorf was a success. Chico and Edvan both finished 9th. My job again is it to control all organisation, drive the car and improve their skills on and off the water.
Four Dimensions news:
Four Dimensions is still creating some waves. The screening in Munich was sold-out and now we've got an invitation from the famous Defi Wind in France. If you have time - join them and watch the movie together with 1,000 other windsurfing fans on the super-big screen. Victor Fernandez will be there and surely will sign some posters and DVDs.
