The event was amazing. It is the best event I have ever raced at since starting the PWA tour. I won, but also the conditions were off the scale. We raced a lot on 5.5m sails. It was wavy and mega windy and not so choppy. It was just incredible fun. It was by far the best conditions ever. The waves gave a whole new dimension; they made the racing more difficult, but with the challenge of extreme wind it was high speed racing at its best. I love this because you could play on the course, come back and gain positions. This is proper racing. I was just focussed to race well in every single heat. I have trained for high winds in Tenerife; I love racing like this, and I think one of the keys is that you must like the conditions. The passion I have for windsurfing is for this type of racing. I just concentrated on my performance race by race. When we had the waves it was kind of dangerous, but we are professional windsurfers so we need to race in the best and most extreme conditions. Maybe we need to race sometimes when normal guys cannot even make it out. This is the core of our sport, so it was great that the race director put the buoy in the waves…we need more events like this!
