Fanatic | Victor Fernandez Maui Webisode 2012

Fanatic released a Maui webisode of their highest-ranking wavesailor Victor Fernandez who is currently training in Gran Canaria.

'I was on Maui training before and after our annual Fanatic/NorthSails photo shoot for a very long period. Now I am already in Pozo for a week and we've had some very nice days with great conditions. The level is very high this year though, some of the new kids coming up, for example my team mate Alessio Stillric,h are really ripping and flying high. I am sailing on my new 2013 gear already and I feel very confident on it. During the next month I will focus on improving all the moves and setting up my new equipment to be 100 percent prepared for the first PWA wave event of the year in Gran Canaria. Looking forward to start the season with passion and lots of motivation.'

PWA Islas Canarias Excellence Awards

PRESS RELEASE:

The Islas Canarias PWA Windsurfing Excellence Awards

Are you ready for something completely new?
The PWA is extremely proud and excited to announce the launch of the Islas Canarias PWA Windsurfing
Excellence Awards. This is an entirely new concept of awards and they evolved from the riders.

The awards will run every year starting from now, with the winner of each category being announced
in February of the following year.

The Islas Canarias PWA Windsurfing Excellence Awards will consist of a variety of categories, which are;

Biggest wave of the year, jump of the year, best single wave riding move of the year, freestyle move of the
year, wipe out of the year and the racing move of the year.

There will also be a completely separate set of
awards for; PWA sailor of the year, an honorary award, photographer of the year, short film of the year and
last but not least an award for outstanding achievement in windsurfing cinematography.

One thing is for sure
these awards leave no stone unturned.
The really exciting part about the Islas Canarias PWA Windsurfing Excellence Awards is that they are open
to absolutely everyone, so whether you are a full time pro or a weekend warrior, you now have the opportunity
to pit yourself against the best in the world.

Perhaps even more excitingly the Islas Canarias PWA
Windsurfing Excellence Awards offer you the potential to become a star in the windsurfing world.
A massive thank you must go to the Islas Canarias because without their sponsorship these awards would
not be possible.

The Canaries are a beautiful and special place with stunning scenery, beautiful beaches
and wall-to-wall sunshine meaning there is something for absolutely everyone. Furthermore the wide range
of conditions on offer year round, mean that whether you are a radical wave head or a family looking for a
tranquil retreat, these islands possess the magic to far surpass your dreams.

All that's left for you to do is to head over to the PWA website and fill out the submission form combined with
your link, of either an image or video clip, which you would like to nominate.

Your fate from there is in the hands of the PWA committee.
So what are you waiting for? Get those entries rolling in and good luck.

Win a Wizard | NeilPryde 2013 Freestyle Sail Launch

NeilPryde launched the first of their 2013 sail range with the release of the Wizard Freestyle sail - signature line of 2011 PWA Freestyle World Champion Steven Van Broeckhoven. Here's the Press Release and details on a competition to WIN A WIZARD via the Neilpryde Facebook Page - and a video presentation.

PRESS RELEASE:

Introducing the Wizard

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest addition to our range and the first preview of our 2013 Collection, the Wizard.

NeilPryde design centre and freestyle world champion, Steven Van Broeckhoven joined powers to dream up the Wizard – the ultimate sail for new school freestyle riding.

More power, more response and more air. Easy to handle, early planing and a lot of drive. You lead and it will follow. Works like magic.

Marco Leconte, NeilPryde Brand Manager:

"Our focus for the last few years has been on the wave, and race sails. When we teamed up with Steven it was evident that the freestyle sailing market had increased significantly and there was an opportunity for us to design a sail that was built for pure freestyle riding. Steven spent a great deal of time on Maui, with our designer Robert Stroj, adjusting and fine-tuning the Wizard until both were happy with its performance. We are all extremely pleased with the result and looking forward to Steven competing on the Wizard."
