FRENCH AFF BREST

May 20

The second stop of the french event was in Brest in Brittany. All the top french riders were there + a lot of new young riders fully equiped and motivated!! Forecasts were nice but we were quite unlucky because wind was really gusty and sifting from 4 to 16 knots. We tryed 18 start of the winner final… so it become more a race on the parking with a differents points of view if we have to keep pushing or not to valid a single race.

Thanks to the organisers, sponsors and all the riders who were there even if we don’t race. 2 more event to come in Leucate and La Torche for the 2013 tour AFF. The tour is nice and there is a great level on water.

Now I am on my way back home visiting shops for Tabou and Gaastra. Then we will test some flat water sail in south of France with the Gaastra Team and Peter Munzlinger + doing a small shooting!!

DEFI WIND

May 20

This event is insane and a nice promotion for windsurf! I have been there for the last day of the event straight after Korea. I just did the last race of the event and it is clearly a different race than a slalom in Pwa! It is 40 km long and you need to choose the right gear at the right time to go fast and be easy all the way. I get a good start with my manta 61 and Vapor 6,4. I was fighting with Pascal T, Nico W and Pierre M and Belbeoch was leading. Before the finish line we get a hall of wind… so we can’t make the finish line without tacking! Great job for 3 pro rider…

Whatever I hope to do it again on the futur and be ready for it! 800 people on the same start line and with good spirit, all good for the sport!!!

PWA KOREA

May 20

Here we are! First world cup of the year… all riders were ready for it after some months of trainning all around the world.

I feeled confidant with my gear. My Vapor rig were a nice evolution from 2012 with more low end and a lighter sail in the hand. The level on water is even more close betwen all of us than last year! No mistake allowed if you want to adance true your heat.

We did 3 races in total in ok conditions from 8 to 20 knots. Wind was less gusty yhan previous year and races were nice to see because of action. I did good with a final ranking of 10 but it is only first event of the year and ranking will change for sure! I used mainly my 9,5 on my big manta board and also during the first race my 8,6 and manta 71 who is this year a great combo!

So a long trip for all of us and some news faces on the top 10! Congratulations to Alberto Banbino the winner who deserveted to win. 2013 season look exciting!

I used 3 differents size of Vapor: 5,6/6,4/7,1 with my Tabou manta gun 54 and 49. Level was hight and speed really close bewten rider. I finish 4 in windsurf with some runs over 40 knots on this spot. We also did some runs on the tandem for the fun.
