The windsurfers were early on the beach today and were looking forward to the waves and the strong winds. Today starts the Slalom Windsurfing World Championships. There are forty competitors in total. They will race in heats of ten competitors at the same time.
The weather looks good and the waves are not too high, says Dorian van Rijsselberge, Olympic surfer and broadcaster during the Worlds Slalom Windsurfing. These are excellent conditions for windsurfing, really the best you can have! There are a lot of competitors with equal chances to win, so it will be an exiting competion to follow.
The surfers will continue surf heats until Saturday. Then the best ten will compete against each other in a final match.
