Speed windsurfing: everyone targets l'Hydroptère

Speed windsurfing is back in action. The 2010 Speed Windsurfing World Championship will be held between 15th and 21st November in Port St. Louis, France.

The organization is expecting the presence of the best pro speed windsurfers in the world with a minimum prize money of €10.000 euros.

Many of these athletes are now training for the upcoming speed events, such as the 2010 Luderitz Speed Challenge.

The main goal is to reconquer the world speed sailing record, in the hands of l'Hydroptère.

The current 500m record is held by French windsurfer Antoine Albeau, ratified at 49.09 knots (90.91 km/h - 56.49 mph) on the Saintes Maries de la Mer Canal in March 2008.

Waves are constantly breaking all over the world, and if you're on a surf trip or family vacations it's always good to know you can rent a surfboard anywhere there's a gem to be ridden.
