Wed 23 Jan 2019

On November 26, 2018, the World Surf League (WSL) suspended the iconic Peahi Challenge, in Maui. Why? There was too much wind, and the conditions were too gnarly for big wave surfing.

Luckily, "too much wind" also means perfect conditions for... big wave windsurfing. With a 27-second period swell marching in, Camille Juban, Kai Katchadourian, and Rudy Castorina grabbed their gear and sailed toward the peak at Jaws.

They were out at 4 pm. And then suddenly, the liquid mountains began to rise above the horizon.

Tue 11 Dec 2018

The first windsurfer to ever take on Nazaré's Praia do Norte continues to impress.

Jason Polakow is probably the most well-rounded wave sailor on the planet, and it's quite clear why. This time, he got on a plane to what appears to be T-Land, in Indonesia.

"Indonesia has always been on my bucket list. I've been watching the Indian Ocean fire up every year, so I've been doing a lot of research and hearing a lot of ghost stories, so I thought it's time that I come out here and find something," explained the Australian.

Wed 5 Dec 2018

The adventurers visited Gladstad, and Bodo, before exploring the sailing and wave riding potential of the Lofoten archipelago, a region where they found an active surfing community.

Does blending windsurfing and football really work?

Thu 22 Nov 2018

Sam Esteve has been trying to figure out a way of blending windsurfing with football. It doesn't seem to work, but it can be fun.

Is it the offseason or the silly season? Whatever the answer is, French freestyle windsurfer is getting creative while prepping for the 2019 PWA World Tour.

Esteve finished eighth last year, so he should be quite pleased with his performance among the elite. But that doesn't mean he isn't actively training for a bigger and better season.
