Only a couple of weeks have passed since the last stop of the European Tour was staged at Brutal Beach, in the South of France, one more time being organized and hosted by Fred Bosson and the Open Ocean Media crew. 25 riders from eight nations travelled to the coast to either have their first international competition experience or to fight for a good position within the overall ranking for 2013 or even for the title itself.
Despite the very light and tricky conditions, the sailors tried to show their best performance and after the Aqualeto Cup in Russia, once again Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP/Neilpryde) impressed the judges with solid heats throughout the whole competition, proving to be a well worthy European Champion. He was also the one to win the tow-in competition which made spectators gather together at the beach to watch and cheer for the pros.

It was good to see how the European Freestyle Expression event has been developing over the last couple of years and we are hoping for it to become even bigger in the future to attract even more spectators and riders. The whole organization team is making this happen year by year with a lot of passion, always trying to improve and integrate new ideas to push their event and their excellent media output to the next level.
