European Surf Festival

The first time for the European Surf Festival Makkum from 09.10.-11.10.2009 was a very great success! 18 exhibitors were presenting the latest stuff over 3 days on the beach.

Not only the new equipment for 2010 was a reason to visit the festival but also to meet the World Champion Josh Angulo, Kauli Seadi or Klaas Voget.

11.000 visitors had a lot of fun and a good mood at all the event days.

On Saturday in the evening was the big and great premiere party of “Four Dimensions” in the big party tent with a big screen and about 700 windsurf-fans directly on the beach. 

On Sunday the weather was very nice with good wind conditions and nice sunshine - perfect for testing the ne stuff!

And also the F2 Speed Challenge was able to start. The fastest guy of the weekend was Otto de Jong with a topspeed of 68,86 km/h. Way slower, on the second place was Jan Willem Baan with 59,47 km/h. On third place Erik Loots with 57,27 km/h. The winner could happy about the first price - a F2-Missile sponsored by Open Ocean.

Also the Open Dutch Championship on Sunday was a highlight. The open contest in the discipline Formula Windsurf was won by Voncent Langer (D). Second place was taken by Richard Konstapel (NL) and the third place was taken by Josh Angulo (CV).
