The two centres are less than 10 minutes apart -by road. The Worlds will take place from base 1 - base 2 is the venue this weekend for the Brasilian FE Championships. FW competitors are also invited to join the event - and therefore have two training options to prepare themselves.

why there is no info about conditions? about what was happening there?

Only 20 racers taking part divided in 3 classes and again separated to light and heavy weight at the worlds? I think there is not a light- and heavy weight class rule for Youth and Junior, or I´m wrong? All in all its a joke - 20 riders at the worlds...

May be the officials should think about the place, the costs for the trip and if its not possible to do 1 event for the worlds (seniors, masters, youth, juniors, female/male) per year. That will lower the total costs for a lot of associations. No spanish racers in Brazil, no dutch, no portugese even... and for them its quiet cheap to fly over to Rio...

May be the officials should think that FW is almost dead for youngs and youth.

The Equipment list shown is completely useless fin wise when no correct info about fin type is included, i.e Virus 70, Virus 70, Virus 70 - 3 identical fins ?? No way! Let's have more realistic and informational info available, otherwise just leave out the useless info.

Who cares about that fin thing?

Comment to the post from 14th October 2010 (12:27:33) wrote by Anonym : I'm sure FW is more fun than RSX for youngs and youth. kids in my group like more planing not pumping if they can choose... I prefer message for my students "windsurf must make your mind happy not be like suffering... but parents, coaches,politics, business people have allways better viewpoint for next generation... I just hope to bring in to the FW open some new youngster in next year.
