The AWT Goya Windsurfing Festival Rocked – Here’s 5 Reasons Why

4. Talent – Being a short plane ride away from Maui, the Santa Cruz AWT has always had a somewhat higher standard of pros in the pro devision than most national windsurfing tours. This event really was the who’s who of professional windsurfing though with many of the top professional windsurfers in the world in attendance including Marcillo Browne, Boujmaa Guilloul, Levi Siver, Camille Juban, Francisco Goya, Josh Stone, Graham Ezzy, Kevin Pritchard, and Kai Katchadourian. It was a unique opportunity for rank amateurs such as ourselves to meet some of the top guys in a relaxed atmosphere and a big part of what makes these events so special.
