The biggest news of all however, is that the event will now be run by the Moreno twins. The Moreno twin’s are two of the best female windsurfers, and they intend to bring a fresh new look to the PWA tour stop. They have already re-named it the PWA Pozo Wind & Waves Festival. A strong prediction is the emphasis on growing the event to a scale that is similar to PWA Podersdorf or PWA Sylt.
The ECWF is all about having fun. For this reason there will be no wind minimum for any of the events. As long as there is enough wind to move a windsurfer forward we’re competing. So Bring all your gear! Check in will start at 9:00 am on Saturday June 9th, adn competitors should be ready to race by noon.
