The Fuerteventura Wave Classic saw the opening ceremony last night at 08.00 pm. Almost all riders showed up. Just Thomas Traversa missed the opening, but will arrive on time for the competition and guest rider Björn Dunkerbeck should arrive in Corralejo on Wednesday in the afternoon. The ceremony was held in the Oasis Papagayo Resort and organiser Orlando Lavandera announced the main goal of the event: “This is an event, which is made for riders. And together with all of you, who showed up, we want to present windsurfing as a cool and radical sport.”
