Our experience throughout the whole event was truly memorable, the hospitality the relaxed atmosphere, even after things became a little heated during the end of one race, it took just minutes before everything was calm again and easily resolved. It was an event where the Dunkerbeck team couldn’t open their arms any wider, everyone had a great time; the kids, the competitors, the family and spectators that were passing through all thoroughly enjoyed it. The feedback post event certainly left the right vibe with the DSC team who announced plans to make three events happen next year and five the year after.
If there is one thing to remember, that has to be the event that started in 1988 on Gran Canaria. Ulla Dunkerbeck, mother to Björn, set up the PWA event there and what was a small scale opening event on a windy unsheltered beach called Pozo has now grown to the most exciting PWA wave event on the tour. So don’t hesitate to imagine where this might lead…
The idea of speed windsurfing competition is not one that would cross the mind of many, especially a young(ish) freestyle windsurfer like yours truly, but one thing is for sure I’ll certainly be attending next year.
