Ross Williams has conquered the prestigious 2015 Tiree Wave Classic, held in the iconic Scottish island.

United Kingdom's premier and oldest windsurfing event returned in full swing in 2015. The ultimate British wave sailing contest was run for the 29th year at the new Kirkapol headquarters, in Gott Bay.

"The only negative about this event is that I have to leave. The waves weren't huge during my heats, but you really see the potential and in that respect Scotland is the perfect stage! Every time I'm here I'm impressed with the amateur fleet pushing each other," underlined Ben Proffitt, one of the veterans of the Tiree Wave Classic.

The event crowned champions across four divisions. In the Pro fleet, Ross Williams left Phill Horrocks and Andy Chambers in the second and third, respectively. In the Amateur category, Scott McDowell prevailed, while Sara Kellet took the Women's competition. Daniel Melbourne won the Masters' division.

"Super happy that I can win the double elimination, and take home the sword. So that was mission accomplished. I'm stoked," said Ross Williams.

The first edition of the Tiree Wave Classic was run in 1986. The year 2016 will certainly be even more special for the 700 inhabitants of the small island.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
