For many years, Playa de Sotavento, Fuerteventura has been a preferred spot for equipment testing thanks to the constant good winds and unique conditions. As testing trips were getting more frequent, the testing trips concept was developed into an official “test week” to also give clients and staff of Rene Egli Fuerteventura the opportunity to participate in equipment test and development.
All participants of the test week can, among other things, get an early preview of all of the latest equipment from the Severne brand, meet the Severne team, as well as get some guides into the technique and setup of Severne gear, all in the great surroundings of the Rene Egli Fuerteventura and INNSiDE by Melia Fuerteventura.
This year’s Test Week will take place between September 15-18. You can check out all of the details about the event by following this link.
