Hexagone Windsurf released a great event video about the Leucate Freestyle Contest, which took place at the end of October. There were excellent wind conditions and excellent riders. Mélanie Garin got out of her van and said: “We got up in the morning, it was 8 degrees but we fully attacked.” It was very cold during the contest but the level was high and also the youngest riders showed great moves. “It was a big day on the water, … with some rain … but it was really cool”, said Julien Taboulet.
Hexagone Windsurf took over the French freestyle tour from Julien Mas this autumn and will organize the French freestyle events in the future. The event in Leucate was their first event!! Well done! And Christallén produced an excellent video about the contest.
“In 2018, a new wave of French freestyle made its appearance, with “Hexagone Windsurf”, which clearly shows its ambition to become a solid tour for 2019.” Sébastien Fournier, organizer
