Good fun for the juniors at the first PWA Youth event 2019


Event Summary

Victor Fernandez is not only a three-times world champion but also a great ambassador of the sport we’re all addicted to. By hosting the first PWA Youth event 2019 in his center in Almerimar, he gives the windsurfing stars of tomorrow a chance to live their dream, to connect with each other and of course have a fun time together.

Our #teamduotoneJR got good results in the U20 category: Jose Casanova Perez 2nd and Regina Villegas 1st. Unfortunately, our amazing wave riders couldn’t show their skills. The conditions were not good enough during the competition period to run waves.

The PWA counts:

More than 40 participants from seven countries - Germany, Belgium, Denmark, France, Spain, United Kingdom and Italy were attending the event. A total of 11 races were run with east and west winds in the slalom discipline. 9 heats of slalom were completed during an intense day with east winds (Levante) on the second day of competition. On the last day another two races were completed, this time with west winds (Poniente).

The event marks its second successful edition, proving that the spot Almerimar is a suitable location for many windsurfers. The young riders have shared an incredible week of windsurfing and participating in other activities in the Spanish town of Almerimar.

Victor Fernandez: "The 2nd edition of the Víctor Fernández PWA Youth World Cup Almerimar has exceeded all my expectations. We were able to improve our organisation compared to last year. We had incredible food, fun no wind activities and a very good infrastructure in general. We have the help of a lot of local volunteers and we were able to build a good relationship with our sponsors. That’s why I am already able to announce the third edition of the Victor Fernandez Windsurf Festival, which will be held from 27th to 30th December 2019 with the Spanish Championship followed by the PWA Youth World Cup from the 2nd until the 6th of January 2020."
