On the weekend of 23 & 24 August 2008 Project44 organises the 5th edition of The Mission, one of the biggest amateur windsurf events in the world, held at the Kabbelaarsbank, at Sail and Surf Centre Brouwersdam, the Netherlands.
The event is open for all ages and will be held with the Olympic spirit in mind: participating is more important than winning. The course sailed is a downwind slalom format, the rules are easy: just go for it, jibe and get your way to the finish line! For non-participants the event will certainly also be interesting: during the whole weekend the brand new 2009 windsurf equipment of Fanatic, F2 , MauiSails, Choco Fins and ION will be available for testing and teamriders will be on site to answer all questions about the new gear.
The event will be attended by many professional windsurfers amongst whom Fanatic´s Freestyle Tourleader Champion Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo, European Champion Andre Paskowski, Tom and Yoli de Brendt and others. Of course national top riders from Holland and Belgium will attend to. In the battle of giants the pro’s will show all the latest moves. New for this edition of The Mission is the jump competition, where the riders will use The Red Bull ramp to make huge jumps. Who jumps the highest, who makes the best move, who crashes his entire windsurf kit? The first day of the event will be finished off in style with a barbecue and a big party. The next day it is back to business with another series of racing, battles and ramp action.
See you at The Mission !!
