Having just completed their second full summer in El Médano, the staff of The Official Test Centre (OTC) have had a chance to reflect on what has been yet another stunning summer for wind.

The statistics (which can be viewed on The OTC website at www.otc-windsurf.com/wind.htm) speak for themselves, with only 2 days missed in the whole of July and August, and the average sail size used in August being 4.7m!

The respite is short-lived though as the wind is continuing to blow and the centre is entering their kit changeover period, so be one of the first to try out all the very latest 2009 equipment on holiday in Tenerife, or visit the OTC website to pick up some 2008 equipment in excellent condition and at a fantastic price. You can also subscribe to the centre’s newsletter from their homepage, ensuring that you’re the first to hear of all the latest gossip from The OTC and El Médano.
