Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup: great venue

The PWA World Tour has announced the cancellation of the Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup 2014.

Friends of Cold Hawaii, the organization team behind the Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup, have issued a press release in which they explain the reasons behind the cancellation of the 2014 windsurfing event, held in Denmark.

"This happens in the aftermath of Thisted City Council's decision to grant 350,000, and not the 500,000 that the association had requested," explains Finn Jorsal, president of Friends of Cold Hawaii.


Abderazaq Labdi: in 1998, he built his own windsurfing equipment

In 1998, Abderazaq Labdi was just another kid enjoying the pleasures of life by the sea. He wanted to go windsurfing, but he didn't own proper equipment.

The photograph above was taken in Morocco. Essaouira, Labdi's home town, had great wind conditions for sailing away in the Atlantic Ocean, the boy was too young to have his own windsurfing gear.

Abderazaq lived near Moulay, one of the best windsurfing spots in Morocco. Here, the northeast "Charki" trade wind blows all year round, so it's easy to get into sailing.
