The stand-by contest Storm Rider 2011, with the waiting period between 20.01. - 20.02.2011, took place on 16th of February. The wave competition took place at Bat Galim beach, Haifa, Israel.
Arnon Dagan, professional windsurfer on the PWA tour and ambassador for the sport of windsurfing in Israel, sent the news that the top sailors from Israel were waiting for the sickest storm of the year again for the 9th edition of the contest. The organisers just wait for a big storm with waves and then start the event. Local hotshots were joined in the event by Ross Williams (GBR 83) Gaastra/Tabou, team mate and travel companion of Arnon.
Ross agreed it was worth the wait as he emerged victorious in this his first wave competition of 2011.
