Gran Canaria & Tenerife
What an awesome few weeks in the Canary islands!!!
From Lanzarote we headed back to Gran Canaria for the PWA Wave event in Pozo. The contest organization was nowhere near as good as the one in Lanzarote, but we still had a great time on the water. The first day of competition was totally glassy - pretty rare over there!!! - but a few of us went on a mission to find some conditions and were rewarded with a fun wave session up north. The day after the wind woke up and we were on! 3 days of competition on 3.4 and 3.0 for me, small waves but unreal action. It's almost as much fun to be riding as to be sitting and watching.
To get a bit of an idea of what's happening on the water there you should really have a look at the videos and photos of the event on the PWA website...
Once Pozo was over we jumped on the first ferry over to Tenerife. I thought Pozo was windy but what was waiting for us there reminded me what 3.0 weather really is!!! It was so good to get some good waves and spend hours out there till we couldn't hold onto our booms anymore. I absolutely loved it. We were a really good crew out there too, Si, Justin, Ben W., Ben S., Jaegger, etc...
Ben from the OTC - and all his staff - looked after us really well again, thanks guys! We'll be back soon!
I flew back to Switzerland yesterday. The sun is shining, it's hot, loads of fun stuff happening, just loving summer over here. And this weekend is gonna be BIG!!! It's the big Surf Shop Party in Préverenges: Windsurfing, Stand Up Paddling, Wakeboarding, BBQ, Party... And plenty more cool stuff going on over the whole weekend. There's absolutely no good reason to miss it! We wanna see you all there for an awesome weekend at the beach. Check out the flyer above for details or go and visit the Surf Shop's website.
Or just simply get yourself down there to check it all out!!!
I'm actually off down there right now to help out set up the place and I'm sorry if the French version is in English... Really gotta go!!!
