- Nico Parlier crowned the 2016 Hydrofoil Pro Tour champion
Nico Parlier claimed the 2016 Hydrofoil Pro Tour title. The French kiteboarder, 21, ended up winning three of the season's four stages.
There's nothing much to say when a competitor wins all races. Nico Parlier traveled to the small coastal town of Rockingham, in Western Australia, and stormed the event by conquering no less than 17 races.
"It's a great honor for me to win the first Hydrofoil Pro Tour. During the whole year we saw that all the fastest riders were at the events," said Parlier, who has clearly been the best and fastest athlete among 56 kite foilers.

- Max Matissek goes windsurfing in a rooftop pool
Max Matissek continues his unusual windsurfing experiences in Vienna. This time, he took his windsurfer to a rooftop pool located in the heart of Austria's capital.
When Matissek started his "True Wind" windsurf-and-art project series, he imagined a world where his abstract fantasies became crystal-clear realities. Last year, Max took his windsurfing equipment to a large underground rainwater reservoir located in Simmering, Vienna.
Now, the Austrian freestyler literally stepped up his game by pulling a few tricks in the rooftop pool of Vienna's Alt Erlaa, a residential complex built between 1973 to 1986 with a surprising motto: "the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people."
