The international freestyle camp for young freestyle enthusiasts

at the Pro Center René Egli, Sotavento, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

islands of San Andrés (Colombia), Crete (Greece), Tobago (Caribbean),

Cape Cod (USA), England, France, Germany, Austria, and of course Italy. In the

Preview - 2003

CAMP, and like last year the camp will be coached by the instructors of the

windsurfing center together with the JP World Cup team riders like two times

World Champion Josh Stone from Hawaii, 2002 Vice Champion Ricardo Campello from

Venezuela, "Mr. Grubby" Greg Allaway and the World Cup heroes Andy

Pusch from Germany, Julien Taboulet from France and Robby Swift from England.

No limitations: every young windsurfer who is interested may participate! Instructions

will be held for all levels, from Duck Jibe to Spock 540. You do not have to

can show what he has learned. This is all about fun but never the less, the

two winners will be awarded a wild card to compete in the qualification (17.07.2003;

right after the camp) of the PWA Freestyle World Cup (18.-21.July).
