Racing, Slalom PWA-clinics or just careless blasting / racing with friends
This winter TWS began their Pro Slalom Stages project, which brought to El Medano 40 professional slalom riders. The idea was to simulate real slalom racing with the starting boat and marks to jibe around. A completely new concept for windsurf riders and slalom fanatics with a need for speed.
Harco-Jan Folkerts, owner and driving force behind TWS explains: “Would it not be great if you could fly this winter with nothing more than your hand luggage on a lowcost flight, and then four hours later being on the water free-racing in your shorts with your buddies? Well, so can in Tenerife! We already offered the very best equipment in (freeride, freestyle wave and wave gear. Now, starting from the end of October we offer eight complete sets of 2015 slalom North / Fanatic kits. Ready for use, rigged with the best carbon masts, racebooms and Select- fins. Windsurfing at its best with your surfing buddies, partner, or just by yourself blasting for a week or more with top of the range equipment without the hassle and struggle of travelling with your own kit”
Where most windsurf rental centrees limit their offer for speed and slalom freaks to safe free-ride stuff, TWS is making a difference with really high-end slalom equipment. Wanna see which of your friends is the fastest? For once and for all you can decide it on The Downwind Slalom Courses… Wanna work your technique? Then join one of our clinics for gybing, tuning and trimming, given by PWA riders…
“Tenerife is getting more and more training ground for National and International windsurfers.” So says Harco-Jan. “All winter long Dutch PWA talent, Jordy Vonk, will be giving clinics at TWS. In addition, the Fanatic team riders Matteo Lachino, Piere Mortefon and Marco Lang will also be there hosting some clinics and coaching sessions.” We want to keep the entry level for Winter Slalom Stages accessible. Attending one of the PWA clinics is completely free of choice and is tailored to your specific questions. It is your windsurf holiday so it’s up to you if you want to go free-sailing on the gear or participate in the clinics! With a monthly average of 65% of days with more than four beaufort, your sailing hours are assured. When the trade winds blow too strong to go to out with slalom kits then there is always one of the 80 wave sets waiting for you.TWS GPS Ranking
