Welcome to DEFI WIND 2024

The weather is heating up in Europe, and after an absolute banger of an event last year, windsurfers in Europe and around the world are preparing for the new edition of the Defi Wind. This is the largest event of its kind in the world where amateurs and pros alike can share the stoke of windsurfing. Breaking all previous numbers, this year all spots are SOLD-OUT. This means 1500 windsurfers on the start line!

We’ll be there

We’ll be present at this year’s Defi throughout all event dates, and we’ve got an incredible activity schedule lined up for all days, so make sure to check out the details here below and stop by the Severne area at any time.

The 024 SV X DEFI T-shirt

About DEFI WIND

Last year, a whopping 1406 windsurfing enthusiasts, amateur racers, and pros gathered in Gruissan, a beautiful town located in the southeast of France to form the epicenter of windsurfing. In 2024, the location remains the same, the event dates are May 9th – 12th. Save those dates!

This yearly windsurfing “pilgrimage” connects windsurfers from all across the world for four days of high wind racing across a 40km long marathon course, but that’s not all. Many stars of windsurfing including SEVERNE rider Bjorn Dunkerbeck frequent this event, giving participants a chance to mingle with their idols. Topped with giveaways, presentations, concerts, and parties, there are festival vibes that attract not only the windsurfers who take part in the event but also many others who come to enjoy the great atmosphere.

Whether it is live on the water, or on the big screen at the center stage, spectators will get to see incredible “rabbit” starts along the nearly kilometer-long start line and nerve-wracking action as the fleet defeats the strong tramontana winds on both fin and foil.
