The upcomig weekend 20 & 21 August 2011 Boardguru organises the MissionXL, one of the biggest amateur windsurf events in the world, held at the Kabbelaarsbank, at the Sail and Surf Centre Brouwersdam, Netherlands. The event is open for all ages and will be held with the Olympic spirit in mind: participating is more important than winning. The course sailed is a downwind slalom format, the rules are easy: just go for it, jibe and get your way to the finish line! For non-participants the event will certainly also be interesting: during the whole weekend the brand new 2012 windsurf equipment of the finest brands (Fanatic, North, ION, NP, JP, Unifiber, Select, Mystic, Quatro, Ezzy, F2, Choco Fins, Gaastra and Tabou) will be available for testing and teamriders will be on site to answer all questions about the new gear.
The event will be attended by many professional windsurfers amongst whom Gollito Estredo, Laure Treboux, Tonky Frans, PWA World Freestyle Champions 2011 Steven van Broeckhoven and Sarah-Quita Offringa, Peter Volwater, Dani Aeberli, Davy Scheffers, Pieter Bijl, Maarten van Ochten, Paul Boef. Of course national top riders from Holland and Belgium will attend to. In the Battle of Giants the pros will show all the latest moves. Who jumps the highest, who does the best move, who crashes his entire windsurf kit? The first day of the event will be finished off in style with a BBQ and a big party. The next day it is back to business with another series of racing and battles.
