ISA Speedsurfing Grand Prix Fuerteventura 2006

Finian Maynard (BVI, F2) and Karin Jaggi (SUI, F2, North) win the Fuerteventura ISA Speedsurfing Grand Prix 2006.

Double world record holder Finian Maynard from British Virgin Islands and Karin Jaggi from Switzerland are the fastest windsurfers at the 2006 tour kickoff event at Sotavento Beach, Fuerteventura. With a top speed of 39.96 Maynard shortly missed the 40 knot mark, but in the prevailing conditions with 2 meter waves breaking on the course a speed of nearly 75 km/h is still quite impressive.

Ikke helt optimale forhold til speed

Both Maynard and Jaggi were able to win two out of three races, taking the overall victory in close racing to their opponents.

Second place in the mens division went to Patrik Diethelm (ITA, F2, North), French Cyril Moussilmani (FRA, Fanatic, North) took the victory in the final race, giving him the third place overall in the end.

Both Diethelm and Moussilmani were racing on production boards, freely available to everyone. Being that fast on production equipment is a special triumph for Patrik Diethelm, as he is the F2 board designer.

Last years dominating rider, Bjorn Dunkerbeck (AND, T1, North) ended up fourth this year.

In the ladies division, Allison Shreeve (AUS, F2) ended second place, setting a new Australien record on 32.85 knots. French Valerie Ghibaudo (FRA, T1) ended up third.

In addition, the following records, subject to WSSRC ratification, have been set:
Argentinian national record: Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, 35.92 knots
Greek national record: Nick Vardalchos, 35.64 knots
Israelian national record: Arnon Dagan, 37.20 knots
Hungarian national record: Daniel Hasulyo. 24.11 knots

Especially to note is, that Hungarian Daniel Hasulyo is only 14 years old, doing his first speed competition this year.

The ISA Speedsurfing Grand Prix ended with a glamourous pricegiving ceremony and party last night. A total of 25000 Euro pricemonex were given to the winners of this event.

With thrilling races, tough conditions and spectacular crashes the Canary Islands of Fuerteventura presented itself again as a perfect, technical challenging spot for speed windsurfing.
