2014 Goya Windsurfing Festival, day 4 Si Crowther / AWT
The 2014 Goya Windsurfing Festival wrapped up its fourth day without seeing enough wind to run the contest, but a good time was still had by all. The surf was pumping all weekend allowing everyone to get on the water either surfing or standup paddleboarding.

The event's final party was also one for the ages featuring great Mexican food, killer live music and the premiere of an awesome new windsurfing movie starring many of the athletes from the women's division: Girls Want to Get Wet.

Here is the latest word from AWT director Sam Bittner on the $10,000 prize money from this event:

'The idea has been put out to run an on forecast event in Cape Verde with a month-long holding period for February 2015. Up for grabs will be the unused prize money from the Santa Cruz Goya Windsurfing Festival.' Sounds like an exciting plan! Stay tuned for more info.
