Dear Competitors 
It has been decided not to run the proposed WSA event in Durban as pencilled in on the WSA calendar for March 2013. 

This decision was not taken lightly and i use it online viagra utah it was debated thoroughly amongst the committee and the race organizer. 

Although we received sufficient confirmations from competitors to support an event, we also received emails and calls from many who were disappointed in not being able to partake due to the fact that the decision to run the event was only announced 5 weeks prior to the event. Many competitors have made alternative arrangements, some are unable to get leave and others simply cannot afford the cost of flights. 

Should the proposed March 2013 Durban event go ahead, we honestly feel that it is not going to receive the support it deserves. It has also been agreed that March is a risk month to run an event as wind is not as prevalent as in September. All things into consideration a decision has been made to reschedule the event for the weekend of the 20th to the 24th of September 2013 and to include it into the 2013/14 calendar. 

Let us look forward to the new year and focus on all being in Durb’s for a great event come 20 September 2013. I will draw up the calendar this week and I assure you that all events for 2013/14 will be scheduled and will take place as scheduled.
Yours
WSA Team

Freestyle

Freestyle is a timed event which is judged. The competitor who has the greatest repertoire, or manages to complete most stunts, wins. Freestyle is about show and competitors are judged on their creativity. Both the difficulty and the number of tricks make up the final score. Sailors who perform tricks on both tacks (port and starboard), and perform the tricks fully planing score higher marks. High scoring moves include: Shaka, Burner (funnel ponch), Double Forward Loops, the Funnell (invented by freestyle champion Ricardo Campello in memory of Andy Funnell), the Chachoo and the Clew First Puneta (switch stance Spock), Eslider, Flaka. The latest freestyle windsurfing has been well documented in the film Four Dimensions.

For novice windsurfers, low-wind freestyle tricks are an appropriate start, such as sailing backwards with the fin out of the water, or transitioning from a sailing stance to sitting on the board while continuing to sail.

Peter Lumley is the most technically experienced windsurf racer in South Africa. Pete has earned himself the name of "Peter the Millimetre" because of his extreme attention to absolute detail. Never without his black book, he notarizes everything. Pete’s years of experience and abilities left us all floundering at this year’s 2013 Downwind Dash in Langebaan. His knowledge of local conditions and ability to plane when others were sinking, took him to the finish line as the first windsurfer home this year. Pete we can only salute your experience, knowledge and abilities as not even the big names in the PWA were able to finish close to you. Well done you made us proud.

Welcome to the home of the WSA National Tour

The WSA Tour is the official national windsurfing series in South Africa. The aim of the Tour is to establish a series of national events that will ultimately determine the best windsurfers in South Africa. Currently the Tour is competed in three disciplines;

  • WAVE: the true spirit of windsurfing, where a rider can demonstrate his power, aggression and creativity in two of the most powerful forces in nature – wind and waves.
  • SLALOM: the high speed course racing division that puts rider against rider in a test of skill, speed and stamina.
  • SPEED: the one and only test of a rider’s ability at converting wind energy into forward momentum to produce the highest possible speeds on water.

The country is split into four basic regions; the Western Cape, the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu/Natal and the Inland provinces. Each region may host a round of the Tour at the time of year that gives the best possible conditions. To limit the amount of equipment used on the Tour, the standard Equipment-42 rule is used with a wind minimum requirement. For each discipline, riders will be required to register a maximum of 4 sails and 2 boards which they will be required to use for the season. To help the riders with their equipment selection, a wind minimum of 12 knots must be maintained for slalom racing, and, “good windsurfing conditions” in the case of wave.

New to the Tour this year is a revised points system that rewards riders with additional points the higher they finish up the ladder. For more information, check out the WSA Tour Championship Rules here.
