PWA Sylt World Cup - An evening dedicated to André Paskowski

The first day of competition at the GP Joule PWA Sylt World Cup saw summer return as warm temperatures, light winds and beautiful sunny skies graced Sylt with its presence. Whilst no windsurfing took place today, the event site was still buzzing as the crowds basked in the late summer sunshine. After spending the day on hold the freestyle and wave sailors were eventually released at 4pm, before the slalom sailors were released shortly afterwards at 5pm.

An air of excitement, and sadness, also surrounded the event site today as anticipation surrounding the world premiere of the late André Paskowski’s new movie ‘Below the Surface’ built.

The first ever screening of ‘Below the Surface’ will take place later this evening at the Westerland cinema at 8:30pm. Demand has been so high for Paskowski’s final masterpiece that there will also be several additional viewings available next week.

Of course tonight will be used to remember André, as well as celebrating his wonderful life in which he achieved so much, before being so sadly taken far too young. Paskowski was an inspiration to many throughout the world and he will never be forgotten - Not only as a hugely talented windsurfer, but also for his critically acclaimed cinematography, which won him numerous awards for his amazing movies. This week’s freestyle contest will also be dedicated to André Paskowski; such was his impact on the windsurfing world and beyond.

‘Below the Surface’ follows five of the top talents in the windsurfing world - the 2010 PWA Wave World Champion Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / North / MFC), Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC), Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Simmer / MFC), Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North / AL360) and the five-time PWA Freestyle World Champion Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / North) - in five of the best wave riding spots in the world. ’Below the Surface’ will be both an action packed sports movie and an impressive documentary.

Tomorrow’s forecast looks much more promising with winds of 15-20 knots being predicted for much of the day, which should see the warp-speed slalom begin. The slalom and freestyle sailors skippers’ meeting will be held at 10am with the action commencing from 10:30am, whilst with very little in the way of waves being predicted for tomorrow the wave sailors skippers’ meeting will be held at 1pm with a first possible start of 1:30pm.
