2009 Reunion Wave Classic 

On the initiative of Thomas Traversa and JB Caste, who wanted to meet their friends on a friendly wave contest by teams, a first event was created and took place on Fuerteventura (Canary islands) in March 2009.


The contest gathered some of the best international wavesailors on a competition launched in monster double mast high waves on the North Shore's coast.

Sent on this «free expression» challenge, the dozen of guest waveriders battled in very extreme conditions allowing to crown not only one champion but a complete team. In more than 20 ft high waves, the show was really firing off and delivered some great images of extreme and radical rides, plus a really wide media coverage.

2009 PWA Fuerteventura 

A relaxing day on the beach for most, as the double elimination continued throughout the morning until light winds forced a delay in the proceedings. The late afternoon saw the return of the wind, and with it, the return of the super stars. Great performances by the World Champions finished the day off, as Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic/North Sails) and Sara Quita Offringa (Starboard/NeilPryde) confirmed their victories with two outstanding performances.

At first glance, the morning looked much like the familiar scene that we have become accustomed to this week. 35 knots, and perfectly flat water pushed up to the end of the full grand stand, and competition was soon underway.

The epic action kicked off with the women’s fleet, where Junko Nagoshi (Tabou/Simmer Style/Dakine) immediately stood out against a solid performance by Anna Maria Zollet. Nagoshi continued to impress by linking perfect puneta 540s, and spocks which saw her past the brilliant Heike Reimann (Hot Sails Maui) and into a battle for fifth place.

On the other side of the ladder, a determined Nayra Alonso (Fanatic/Severne) was sailing brilliantly, with slick grubbys and spock 540s adding to her great heats. Alonso beat Olga Raskina (JP/NeilPryde/MFC) in a tight heat, and then stood to face Nagoshi. In her best heat of the event so far, Alonso sailed excellently, and went on to pass Nagoshi and Iballa Ruano Moreno (North Sails) in a great run into the top four.
