The 2016 Rip Curl Windsurfing Pro Tour’s Final (French Wave Championship’s Final) took place in Carro (South of France) on the 20th & 21th of November.
The 30 best French wave riders were there to compete in excellent Mediterranean conditions during these two days with strong wind and nice waves. The waves got bigger and the wind turned a bit more onshore on the final day. Regis Bouran, who won 4 out of 6 heats, showed great skills in conditions, which were quite similar to the Canary Islands. Regis lived in Pozo for a while and felt very comfortable at Carro this time.
Thomas Traversa, the number 4 in the 2016 PWA world ranking, just recovered from a face injury, and made it in excellent 2nd place and won the overall ranking of the French Windsurfing Pro Tour 2016. Adrien Bosson, the number 2 in the EFPT tour, completed the podium. The freestyler from South of France got skills in waves and kept off WeshWesh and Nico Akgazciyan, who both showed aggressive wave windsurfing.
