Here is a little movie about a windsurfing trip made in the Canaries by two French riders, Colin & Pedro from La BAR Team (la-bar.fr).
While most people are used to fly to the canaries, we decided to go by van, driving from France to the south of Spain and then taking a ship to Tenerife. After a few days on the spot of the world cup “El Cabezo”, we decided to take another ship to go to fuerteventura.
There we windsurfed on a few different freestyle and wave spots: Sotavento Center 1 and 2, El Cotillo, Playa Blanca… It was really cool to have the chance to go from a spot to another whenever we decided and it’s definitely worth trying the Canaries by van!
What a day all the competitors had at Ho’okipa for Day 4 of the Maui Makani classic! The swell had dropped off but was still substantial enough to provide some logo to mast high sets. The wind pushed through by mid afternoon and most men had rigged 4.7 – 5.0 with the women chosing 3.7- 4.2. It was an emotional day for former world champ and Maui local Kevin Pritchard as he hammered through heat by heat and finally grabbed the title at Ho’okipa for the single elimination.
Enjoy the awesome video of highlights from the Pro single elimination.

That really is the only way to sum up yesterday’s events at Ho’okipa beach park for Day 3 of the AWT Maui Makani Classic! Everyone on the beach felt that history was being made as they sat on the hill and looked down at what most were calling the Greatest Show on Earth!

A mysterious land somewhere in central Europe is home to 4 young windsurfers with very different backgrounds. They all share one thing though: the passion for the best sport in the world – windsurfing. And however shit the conditions might be on their homespots, they will still go out there and go for it as hard as possible. At the end of the day there’s nothing better than a session at home with just the few of your closest friends out, sharing some moment’s you’ll never forget… – Maciek Rutkowski
