Indoor windsurfing will write a new chapter in the history of wind sports. Poland's National Stadium welcomes the Warsaw Indoor PWA World Cup, between 5th-7th September, 2014.

Can you imagine 58,000 spectators watching the world's best windsurfers in a football stadium equipped with a state-of-the-art retractable roof?

Sailors will not ride the green grass. They will race in the gigantic pool that has been installed, spanning 90 metres in length and 33 metres in width.

Julien Quentel has won the first PWA World Tour stage of his windsurfing career, after a dramatic finish at the 2014 Pegasus Airlines Alacati PWA World Cup, in Turkey.

The windsurfer from Saint Maarten had all the pressure on his side. After failing to advance from heat nine with a poor start, Quental was at the hands of Antoine Albeau, who only needed to finish fourth in the winners' final.

Surprisingly, the "French Bullet" missed the opportunity and failed to reach the semifinals. Julien Quentel was ready to celebrate a maiden victory in the pro windsurfing circuit.
