Flexim sponsoring a pro-rider at DEFI WIND windsurf competition

The DEFI WIND windsurf competition is the biggest and most famous international windsurf competition.

1400 competitors from all over the world come every year on Gruissan Beach (South of France), where Tramontana wind blows strongly. At DEFI WIND non-professional and pro-riders gather from nearly 5 continents and 45 countries competing on Mediterranean Sea during several 40 km races a day. If weather forecasts are optimal, windsurfers may ride 80 to 120 km a day !

Matthieu Chazé from Flexim participate in this big event together with Nico Akgazciyan (5th Freestyle World Pro-rider)

Matthieu: “This competition is aptly named, as it is a real sportive challenge (défi in French) for non-pro windsurfers. It is also fun and exciting to compete with pro-riders!”

Nico: “This is the most important event of the year! This competition is a real physical challenge but also a great time of sharing and having fun with non-pro windsurf passionates.”

Flexim is proud to be a sponsor of Nico and off course we are proud off our colleague Matthieu Chazé for his great performance!
