Posted On: 28/10/2011 17:33:01
After a long week of Wave and Slalom battles during the AFF French Championship on the beaches of Six Fours and Hyeres, local club "Six Fours Windsurf Organization" has a single day of rest before moving on to another event, the third edition of the Wave and Freestyle Championship "European Funboard Expression."
The event is set to start on Saturday afternoon at about 1pm as entries will be continued until 11 am. The east wind is supposed to drop down a bit later but there might be an opportunity for better forecasts, and this could be enough to launch a round for freestylers under 20 years. They will battle for the title of "EFPkT European Champion"! The stakes are high for some who are moving from Germany, Holland and even all the way from the Caribbean.
This is a good way to introduce to you an exclusive interview with the 13 years old and very motivated freestyler, Steven Max, who will arrive tomorrow from his island Aruba. The EFE offers him this opportunity to discover the region and a country he does not know yet!
A qualified team of officials and judges are gathered together for the occasion with the presence of Ruben Petrisie, co-ordinator of the circuit EFPkT and Tom Hartmann, head judge on the stages of European freestyle circuit EFPT. They will be supported by two other additional judges.
And if the wind fails to show up? No worries, the organizers of the EFE prepared themselves this year and have planned many activities, such as tow-in sessions which promise explosive freestyle show on the beach with the best riders, but also some initiation to windsurfing to give attention to the young locals from Six Fours, also tests and demos of the latest windsurfing gear and a daily SUP Challenge. All participants in the challenges will be rewarded with loads of goodies and prizes provided by the windsurfing brands and partners at the raffle at the end of the scheduled event! So wind or no wind, the 2011 EFE will definitely rock!
