It’s kind of hard to leave talk of the indoor windsurfing right now. So here are some raw stats for you, a video preview and a video invite from Poland’s very own Maticek Rutkowski.
The pool will be 90m long and 33m wide, the wind will reach up to 70 km/h (almost 40 knots). With a pool so large it will require 3,000 cubic metres of water, that’s 50 hours of constant pumping time, without any break, just to fill it. If those numbers are a little too much then how about this, the pool (when empty) could accommodate eighty trucks or twenty F16 fighters or three space shuttles, standing one next to another.
There will be 30 fans side by side standing almost 2.5m tall. All PWA disciplines will compete; slalom, jump and freestyle and the event will take place over three days.
Lastly, this event marks the middle of the 2014 PWA World Tour calendar. Stay tuned to boardseeker.com for more excitement.
