BEN VAN DER STEEN – PERSPECTIVE

TARIFA  June 2014

// After the PWA Korea event was cancelled,

Ben Van Der Steen was busting to get out there and race so he headed to the Slalom IFCA worlds in the Azores. He’s probably glad he made that decision, since he came back with a World Title! Back at home, John Carter sent him out in 40 knots to sail in front of the ‘Sacred Heart of Jesus’ statue in front of the Tarifa Harbour entrance so he could capture this photo. Ironically, the statue faces out towards Africa, as if to welcome immigrants into Spain. This is also the spot where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean, the southernmost point in continental Europe and a mere 11 km. across the straits of Gibraltar to Morocco.

Top News this Week

Incase you have missed any of the news this week, here’s a recap of the best bits:

On Monday Andre Paskowski joined us for a LIVE CHAT, while Sam Ross sung us his mantra ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ and Boards own freestyle coaches, Phil and Danielle from GetWindsurfing, shared their upcoming plans.

Tuesday saw the Boards print editor, Amy Carter, taking the reins on the website too.

In competition news, the weekend wind provided results for both the BSA in Weymouth and the Irish Speedsailing Championships, and we received a great report from the last SWA event of the season. The BWA are set for Wales and Ireland, which starts a week today.

The top news story of the week has to be from W4CR, with SunriseSunset this Saturday, windsurfers across the country will get together, for what is a worthy cause and an event to make all windsurfers proud.

And W4CR ambassador, Bryony Shaw, is live on Sky Sports Radio today (don’t worry she will upload the mp3 for those who miss it) a great opportunity for our sport to get some mainstream media coverage in the lead up to what should be a very successful year for the Olympian.

And don’t forget we have Dan Ellis reporting every day, from the PWA in Korea look out for this first update tonight!
