The 2024 Defi Wind recap

As we’re all headed back home after this year’s Defi Wind we’re looking back at four days of nonstop fun!

The wind didn’t serve up the typical Tramuntana conditions this year. But rather, it left space open for quiet sun-soaked days of hangouts on the beach, lots of gear talks, activities, and the occasional fun race.

PWA Gran Canaria World Cup 2023 – eight days of full on action

This year’s Gran Canaria world cup was a week-long windsurfing action reel covering wave, and slalom racing.

Not a single day was quiet during this year’s Gran Canaria World Cup. The first weekend delivered the near-perfect wave conditions we all see in magazine shots. Then followed three days of full-power slalom racing, only to have wave action return the following weekend to bookend an incredible event.

Nearly all podiums had Severne riders present. Amongst others, Daida Moreno won her 22nd Pozo title, and Blanca Alabau won her first-ever women’s slalom victory.

The island of Bol in Croatia was the host of the first PWA slalom world cup of the year. The conditions switched on every day and provided for eight slalom eliminations in both women and men’s divisions.

For the Severne team, all riding on the new Mach 5 and HyperGlide 5 racing sails, it was successful, to say the least.
