The Fuerteventa Wave Classic came to a close yesterday after some of the most extreme sailing ever seen in a windsurf contest. Over mast high and breaking deadly close to the rocks and harbour wall.
In the end the team victory went to Stephane Etiene\’s team, with Robin Goeffinet and Boujma Guilloul helping the local ripper to victory.
In terms of individual results Stephane also lead the way, holding off Jonas Ceballos in 2nd and Boujma Guilloul in 3rd. A fine result for him considering the world class competition. Stephane is the master of Fuerteventura after living on the island for the last 10 years, and really showed his class to put the rest of the fleet in their place.
The riders also took a vote on who was the most impressive sailor during the week and easily winning with 12 of the 15 votes was Thomas Traversa. His riding style is fluid and radical, and this combined with his ballsy go for it attitude made him a favourite amongst his peers.
There will be a video of the event coming soon to Boardseeker so stay tuned.
