SECRETS OF THE WIND

van Broeckhoven set to uncover the ‘Secrets of the Wind’ with a little help from his friends

“Secrets of the Wind” is a windsurfing travel story starring 2011 PWA World Champion and three-time European Champion, Steven van Broeckhoven (JP / NeilPryde / Different). Produced by Andraž Žan (F2 / Different) and supported by Jaguar Cars, NeilPryde Windsurfing, Agrityre, JP-Australia and O’Neill, the story will follow Steven and friends on a windsurfing adventure through Europe and be documented through a number of short films. The journey will begin on 5th May and end on 3rd June, 2014.

Following the wind is the dream and passion of every windsurfer and its arrival always signals the beginning of a new adventure. The wind brings a sense of freedom, escape, adrenaline and the excitement of the unknown. The films will attempt to capture the essence of the wind and how it makes one feel alive— as seen through the eyes of the ultimate wind worshipper.

“I believe ‘Secrets of the Wind’ will be an amazing journey and an opportunity to showcase the windsurfing lifestyle—how alive is it and what it means to me”, commented Steven van Broeckhoven. “I feel very fortunate to get support from Agrityre and Jaguar and look forward to working with them as we share the same passion. I am also thankful to my current sponsors NeilPryde, JP-Australia and O'Neill for their contribution and for making my dreams come true.”

Steven will be starting his journey in Belgium and then following the wind to Netherlands, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece. He will be traveling in a Jaguar XF Sportbrake—the perfect windsurfing travel companion.
