5.                 Reports 2005/006


President's report IFCA



The European Freestyle Pro Tour is recognized as our IFCA Freestyle Europeans.

2005: Very successful tour with 10 events and 101 participants

2006: Tour has started with 7events so far from 11 and already 101 participants so far

EFPT was not happy with IFCA last year, specially the not granting of slalom worlds to Silvaplana and the improved cooperation with PWA seems the problem. On launching the discussed Freestyle world ranking they threatened to stop co-operation so we suggested they propose alternative for near future. No feedback so far.



The Slalom discipline is still growing and we have great confidence in the future of slalom.

The Slalom Europeans 2005 were very well organized in one of the best slalom areas of the World Alacati in Turkey. Although the participation of Non-Turkish competitors was low the level of the 13 slalom sailed was very high with Finian Maynard winning the event and Ben Vandersteen being European Champion. Allison Shreeve won the ladies event.


The Slalom Worlds 2005 were organized in Fuerteventura and counted as a tour stop for PWA.

All the top racers were present and 6 exciting slaloms were organized. Micah Buzianis took the title before Bjorn Dunckerbeck and Karin Jaggi was the fastest lady.



2005 : 3 tour stops are sailed with 110 men and 17 women. During the last stop will be in Namibia 13 national and the world record speedwindsurfing, sailing on the Nautical mile was broken



No events in 2005/2006, we trust the organization of wave events to the PWA
