WINDY SEASON

Eilat is located on the southeastern part of Israel by the Red Sea and offers world-class windsurfing conditions throughout the year, but the months of September and October really turn on windwise.

Severne rider Adam Gavriel calls this spot home and one of his favorite freestyle spots in the world.

The pictures Adam sent through tell a story by themselves, but he also had this to say; “September-October is the best time for wind here, and this is the time we were waiting for. The combination of wind (18-30 knots), choppy water, and nice warm weather makes it amazing for freestyle windsurfing, and it’s for sure one of my favorite freestyle spots in the world.

The first sailing day of the season was super fun with wind around 20-22 knots. I was using my FREEK 4.8 sail and my PSYCHO 92L board. I just love this setup. It’s light, fast, powerful and stable, and fits perfectly these conditions and my style of sailing.”
