    Maxime Nocher and Elena Kalinina have claimed the 2016 Kiteboarding European Championships, at Poetto Beach, in Cagliari, Italy.

    With seven race wins, Nocher was the undisputed king of the Formula Kite and KiteFoil Open event, which got underway in multiple Mistral wind conditions and forced riders to risk a broad range of strategies and tactics.

    "Despite the fact that the wind during these days has been particularly challenging, all the athletes are very happy with the championship and surely one can't say that regattas have no thrilling!" noted Mirco Babini, president of the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA).

    Johnny Heineken has claimed the Rippin' The Rio Regatta 2016, held at Sherman Island, in California.

    The hydrofoil kiteboarding regatta in the Delta attracted 16 racers to the Sacramento River. The two-lap windward/leeward course of one nautical mile (from top to bottom) was organized by Rob Dean.

    The exhibition event showcases the potential for racing in venues where spectators can nearly touch riders. The organizers want to add the Rio Vista spot to the Hydrofoil Pro Tour.

    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has urged World Sailing to review the events listed for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

    In the past, it was defined that all ten sailing events in Rio 2016 would remain the same for Tokyo 2020. But the situation might change in the upcoming months.

    Kit McConnell, sports director at the IOC, wants Olympic events that appeal to the youth demographic and encourage gender equity, and kiteboarding is one of the sports that fits the "Vision 2020" strategy.

    The world's best slalom windsurfers returned to South Korea for the first event of the 2016 PWA World Tour season. The surprise news is that Antoine Albeau didn't win it.

    They're teammates, and they've conquered Ulsan. Both Matteo Iachino and Lena Erdil ride for Starboard and Point-7, and they've celebrated an epic victory in Asia, despite the seaweed and the shifty wind conditions.

    "I feel good. I am really happy. It was a hard day because we were three hours in the water waiting for good conditions to come. It was up and down, full of stuff in the water, and it was not easy to hold the pressure," revealed Matteo Iachino.

    Modern windsurfers are confronted with thousands of sail types, sizes, and specifications. If you plan to own more than just a windsurfing sail, take a look at the following quiver building tips.

  • Who said windsurfing is not a team sport?

    Raphael Filippi, Régis Bouron, and Matthieu Vinceneux: the tridem windsurfers

    In 2015, they were a duo. But they returned in 2016 with a new member. Meet Raphael Filippi, Régis Bouron, and Matthieu Vinceneux. Nowadays, they're the most famous tridem windsurfing team, and they are ready to break all records.

    "We're aiming at the speed sailing world record: 70 knots over a 500-meter course. We want to beat the Vestas SailRocket 2 and its 65,45 knots," jokes Raphael Filippi.

    They've studied Physics and came up with a winning formula: if each one of them hits the 23 knots barrier, then the sum of all is, at least, enough to break the boat's record.
