Philip Köster has taken out the Wave division of the Lancelin Ocean Classic 2014, in Western Australia.
The opening events got underway in perfect weather conditions. Sailors had 20 knots of wind, and 6-foot waves peeling in front of their eyes, thanks to a powerful ground swell.
Mother nature delivered some of the best conditions the tournament has seen for this year’s opening event. A 20-knot breeze combined with four to six foot waves had spectators licking their lips.

On the 7th January, 2014, Belharra saw the world's best big wave surfers riding giant walls of salted water. One windsurfer left his comfort zone and his sail to do the same with a surfboard.
Antoine Albeau is probably the most complete windsurfers of all time. He has collected 20 world tour titles and he is currently the fastest windsurfer on Earth at 52,05 knots (96.34 km/h).
Born on June 17, 1972 in La Rochelle, France, Albeau never misses an opportunity to break his own boundaries. This time, he had to play the big wave game in home waters.
