Starboard in Canaries

Showcasing the starboard team in action at the two PWA Canaries events.


The PWA Fuerteventura wrapped up yesterday as the freestyle double elimination was completed. Winds were questionable at best for a large part of the event, but howling winds returned on the last day, allowing the best freestylers in the world to show off there skills. Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / North) had won his second successive event of the year, as he continued his perfect start to the season in his quest for a fifth world championship title. Whilst Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Gaastra / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins / Chris Benz) stomped her authority over the women’s fleet by winning the opening female freestyle event of the year in convincing fashion.

US Windsurfing Nationals Day 2

Formula and Slalom were the call for day 2 of the US Windsurfing Nationals.

Read the full story from Day 2 with pictures on the AWT website here.


The final day of the slalom looked as though we would see another day of classic Fuerteventura conditions, as the morning started in much the same fashion as yesterday. However after an eleven O’clock start, which allowed three heats to be completed, the wind unexpectedly disappeared. On several occasions the wind did threaten to return but it was never for a prolonged period meaning that the sailors endured a frustrating day on standby with no more heats being completed. Shortly before 4pm the sailors were released for the final time, which means that Finian Maynard (RRD / Avanti) is crowned the King of Fuerteventura after a simply brilliant performance yesterday. Maynard won two eliminations and finished third in the other yesterday to claim his place at the top of the podium ahead of Ben Van Der Steen (Starboard / Loft / Mystic / Different) and Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde). The event site was still surrounded by a vibrant atmosphere as the crowds poured into the event tent to see the closing ceremony of the men’s slalom, as well as the live music and dancing.

Read the full report on the PWA Website Here, with a brief interview with Finian Maynard.

The Freestyle portion of the event begins today with the guys scheduled to hit the water first followed by the girls. Check Back here for all the action later.
