RS:X Windsurfing: gear is expensive

The International RS:X Class Association has announced the launch of the RS:X Marketplace.

Windsurfers wanting to sell or buy RS:X equipment will now be able to trade gear in the Olympic windsurfing class website.

PWA World Tour: missing the transparent waters of El Yaque

The 2014 PWA World Tour will not kick off at El Yaque, in Venezuela.

The Professional Windsurfers Association (PWA) has announced that the PWA Grand Slam at El Yaque, Margarita Island, Venezuela, will not be run due to "recent political changes" that "have created some temporary issues".

"Due to changes in the laws and procedures that govern currency exchange in Venezuela, the process of releasing the required funds for the event has been delayed, making it impossible to guarantee that the funds would be released in time for an event at the end of March," the PWA World Tour underlines.
