The windsurfing pro tour is back in New Caledonia

In November 2014, NEW CALEDONIA hosted the final of the Professional Windsurfing World Tour. The curtain of a sparkling year fell during the Nouméa Airwaves Dream Cup ending in style an exciting week of slalom racing.

 In breathtaking panorama and through great moments of emotion and stress, the title race was undecided until the last inning finally gave the victory to Antoine Albeau against Cyril Moussilmani while Ben Van Der Steen ended the year on a very good note by winning this last event.

Meanwhile, Delphine Cousin clinched a fine victory in Nouméa and her second world title in two years, after winning seven of the fourteen women races.

 

Anse Vata beach, which is the ultimate windsurfing location in NOUMEA, is also the tourist center of the capital, where locals and international travelers come to stroll among the fashion boutiques, trendy bars, the aquarium, casinos and large hotels.

Surrounded by both the mountains and the sea, Nouméa, color tinted by its unique cultural mix, is rocked most of the year by the Alizés trade winds (usually between 20-40 km/h).

From there, the playground is huge and beautiful in this unique lagoon, spread over 23,000 square kilometers, most of which is part of the prestigious World Heritage List of UNESCO.

By water taxi, or even windsurfing, you can enjoy this unique environment while avoiding disturbing marine wildlife and protected species such as turtles, dolphins, dugong’s even whales, too, among the most admirable species.

This small island paradise, located between Australia and New Zealand, will again host the Windsurfing World Cup final.

So come and be "at the heart of the event," we are expecting you in Nouméa from 24th to 29th November 2015 for the Airwaves Nouméa Dreamcup.
