Interview with Amado Vrieswijk

    WindmeetFreestyleTour_Icon Hi Amado, Nice to hear that you will take part in the WindMeet Freestyle Tour that will be held at the Sosh Freestyle Cup, an international extrem sports competition and music festival. How do you feel about it ?

TRC_3078I’m always up for something new and challenging so I’m very curious what the Sosh Freestyle Cup will bring. I already read about it and expect some sick action.

   WindmeetFreestyleTour_Icon It will be happening in Marseille, did you hear about this place and about the spots that are surrounding the city ?

TRC_3078I’ve been to Marseille once before in 2010, when travelling to the IFCA Worldcup Slalom in Hyeres and last year in Six Four Plages. I think the south coast of France is really nice .

    WindmeetFreestyleTour_Icon Do you know about our brand new Live Scoring System ? What do you think about this concept ? Are you thinking about doing more WindMeet Freestyle Tour events ?

TRC_3078 I think the Live Scoring Systhem is great, especially for the audience.

Just heart about the event  near Grenoble at the end of this month as it could fit in our Tour, so I think… if Maxime agrees we will be there before heading to Lake Garda at the end of June.  

    WindmeetFreestyleTour_Icon A word about the french freestylers ? Who would you fear the most in a heat ?

TRC_3078 All the French riders are good sailors, I’m not fearing anybody ;). They’re all good and funny guys.

   WindmeetFreestyleTour_Icon We heard about your summer road trip all around Europe, can you tell us a bit more about this special European tour.

TRC_3078 Yess Maxime and I wanted to do something different this year. Instead of flying from Bonaire to all the events several times, we want to explore all exciting windsurf place in Europe and participate in as much events as possible. We are travelling around in a mobilehome were already on Texel,Netherland and in Costa Brava at the PWA Slalom. Now we’re here and next up is possible Grenoble, Lake Garda, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Croatia, Turkey, Sylt, Brouwersdam, Six Four Plages and last but not least New Caledonia. We are both looking forward to aal the adventures we will have and the action in the different events. Up till now we are enjoying every minute.

 

   WindmeetFreestyleTour_Icon Last but not least, do you know the french baguette and croissant ? A lill’ word about the french wine maybee ? “

TRC_3078 I love the French Baguettes with jambon and au chocolat !!

Sorry I don’t drink wine so no opinion about that .

Bonifacio Windsurf Festival Resumed

Bonifacio Windsurf Freestyle Project is dead. Long live Bonifacio Windsurf Festival !!!

In 2015, it’s another step for the corsican windsurf community after the infamous and self called « ghetto like » « freestyle project ».

TRC_1109

Two parts for this event. Freestyle with the WindMeet Freestyle Tour and slalom/speed with the Speed Challenge.

TRC_1227

For the first act, the WindMeet Freestyle Tour, the 7 riders that took part in the event weren’t so lucky with the wind as the gusts never really came stronger than a soft and mellow 15 knots and was pretty often barely hitting 10 knots.

So once more, the battle that took place was a Tow In Battle and a SUP battle.

Even though the wind was too light to do a proper windsurf contest, the action was stil amazing, with some crazy no handed burner from the young new caledonian rider Antoine Albert, winning with this tricks the tow in contest in front of Julien Mas with a sick burner 360°. Gregory Geliot completes this podium with a massive Air Funnel fifty centimeters close from the pier full of spectators… Gnarly action did you say ?

TRC_1629

It was also a very good live test for our brand new Live Scoring System wich appears to be more than efficient and fully operationnal, even in the far outlanded parts of the southern corsica.

Despite the lack of action, the good vibes were permanently part of the game : BBQ, parties, superbs landscapes and the permanent sounds of smiles and laugh…

TRC_1782

Thank you Corsica once again and we will be back that for sure, meanwhile the next tour stop for the WindMeet Freestyle Tour will be held in Marseille ina month for the Sosh Frestyle Cup.
