British windsurfer Adam Lewis has flown higher to claim the Dunkerbeck Extreme Jump Challenge 2016, held at Siam Park, in Tenerife.

Once again, the artificial surf pool welcomed ten of the world's best wave windsurfing specialists for a brilliant showdown. The rules are simple: jump high and perform the most radical maneuvers.

Competitors had two runs to prove to the judges and spectators that they deserved to raise the trophy, but only four windsurfers got the ticket to the final: Adam Lewis, Antoine Martin, Dieter Van der Eyken, and Ricardo Campello.
