Alice Arutkin has been crowned the 2013 French Wave Windsurfing champion, at La Torche.
With nice sideshore wave conditions, Alice Arutkin and Nathalie Cottard disputed a super final to decide who would take the title home.
"I'm very happy with my result! I was very impressed by the level of others. In the first day, Nathalie Cottard had a really good score in the big waves and won our duel", explains Arutkin.
"On the last day, we had to face each other again and this time I won. However, suddenly we were forced to sail a super final as well. I think it was close between us, but I managed to take some nice big waves that allowed me to win once more".
"I'm really stoked, this event was superb. A great atmosphere with the most beautiful girls and waves", concludes Arutkin.
