Kitesurfing final results of the Boracay Funboard Cup 2013

Submitted by Simone on Tue, 01/29/2013 - 02:49

The Boracay International Funboard Cup started slowly as a windsurfing event. Kiteboarding was added in 2005, when this exciting extreme water sport grew bigger. As both sports depend completely on the wind, none of the activities harm the environment and no pollution is created. The Boracay Funboard Cup has become a benchmark for the wind sports community and other events as the Kiteboard Tour Asia were all inspired by the Boracay Funboard Cup. Tanner Aykurt is working for Funboard Center Boracay and became 2nd runner up. Congrates!

Submitted by Simone on Mon, 01/28/2013 - 01:00

 25 years of the Philippines and Asia’s longest running windsurfing and kiteboarding event has been held on Boracay Island last week. The event continues to bring together windsurfers and kite boarders from all over the world. Due to its reliable wind conditions, Bulabog Beach, Boracay Island is the most favorable venue for wind sport events. Just last week the professional and amateur contenders from Asia, Oceania, and Europe were waiting for better wind conditions. With only 14 to 16 knots the competitors were fighting for the best results... Gido and Gordon Gelito, our two windsurf instructors from Funboard Center Boracay could make it to the first runner up. Congrates!

Perfect condition at Bulabog Beach for Wind-and Kitesurfing

Daily-Windsurf-training- to-get-ready- for-the Boracay-International_Funboard-Cup

Another day with 25 knots and more of wind and beautifull sunny weather at Bulabog Beach makes the windsurfers and kiteboarders happy.The low tide in the morning keeps the water flat and shallow: ideal for all kiteboarders to improve speed and jumps while the windsurfers still waiting at the beach for more water coming in. As soon as the water level is high enough the kiteteachers are ready to give their first lessons to make sure the kitestudents are in safe condition. When everyone is pretty exhausted and the high tide creates nice waves, it's time to send all windsurfers out. Gido and Simone take every single hour to get ready for the coming Boracay International Funboard Cup next week. What a great spot :-)
