Fuerte Wave Classic 2010: Windsurfing in Fuerteventura
Fuerte Wave Classic reveals the official list of riders for the 2nd edition of the FWC 2010 windsurfing competition, which will kick off at the beginning of March.
Once again, from March the 1st to the 12th in 2010, some of the best windsurfing wave riders in the world will be back on the north shore of Fuerteventura to take part in the 2nd edition of the Fuerte Wave Classic 2010. This innovative contest will see four teams of windsurfers competing against each other in the best conditions possible, impressing the public with their amazing moves.
How does it work?
The riders will put their names into a hat on Monday the 1st of March to draw the names for the four teams of 2010. Then it is off, from Tuesday onwards to look for the best spots of the day. Between the riders and local organizers we will check the best conditions, then the riders (one from each team) will go into the water in heats of 30 minutes so they have time to fully express their talent. A new method of judging will be used, tried and tested last year during the first edition; riders from other heats will be the judges and the riders will choose amongst themselves the most extreme rider and winning team at the end of the event. Fuerte Wave Classic proudly announces the official list of pro riders:
- Jean Baptiste CASTE / France - Thomas TRAVERSA / France - Dario OJEDA / Spain - Jonas CEBALLOS / Spain - Antony RUENES / France - Alex MUSSOLINI / Spain - Jules DENEL / France - Dani BRUCH / Germany - Adam LEWIS / England - Martin TEN HOEVE / Netherlands - Patrick VIGOUROUX / France - Fabrice BEAUX / France
Majanicho, La Caleta, Puertito and other great spots will be on fire… Fuerte Wave Classic 2010 has a professional rescue crew with jet skis so the riders can express their talent with safety. A camera and a photographer are waiting to bring you incredible radical images. A live ticker will also be activated so that you can follow the live action in Fuerteventura from home! Overall, an innovative competition concept for riders and spectators alike!
