The American Windsurfing Tour 2014 saw its first tour stop of the season at Santa Cruz. Almost 90 competitors registered for the event with many big names like Marcilio Browne, Levi Siver, Kevin Pritchard, Bernd Roediger, Boujmaa Guilloul, Graham Ezzy, Kai Katchadourian, Morgan Noireaux, Josh Stone, Camille Juban and many more.
Unfortunately the wind never got strong enough for an official competition. On the one hand it is never good to have no result, but on the other hand, the AWT wants to keep the prize money for an event at Cape Verde in February 2015. “The idea has been put out to run an on forecast event in Cape Verde with a month-long holding period for February 2015. Up for grabs will be the unused prize money from the Santa Cruz Goya Windsurfing Festival.” Sam Bittner, AWT Tour Manager
