The Islas Canarias PWA Excellence Awards Winners Are…

The first edition of the Islas Canarias PWA Excellence Awards took place and the best of the best in windsurfing have been honored once again. Crashes, crazy moves, huge waves and an amazing collection of short videos have all been entered in this edition of the Awards. PWA riders and amateurs alike submitted their videos and waited for the panel of judges to decide which one was best.

Deciding the winners of each category was no easy task for the judges. In fact it was quite difficult, with so many skilled and talented sailors entering the competition, but in the end they had to do it.

And the winners of the first Islas Canarias PWA Excellence Awards are:
