LOCALS OF DAHAB
Full power freestyle in Egypt.
In the Autumn of 2011 PWA freestylers Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP / NeilPryde), Yegor Popretinskiy (JP / NeilPryde), Sten Aava and Tony Mottus (JP / NeilPryde) visited the windsurfing mecca of Dahab to unleash their full repertoire of tricks.
Dahab is famed for its reliable trade winds, glassy flat water and laid back lifestyle. The world class conditions on offer see many of the top freestylers return year upon year, as it provides the perfect playground for the pro’s to train in preparation for the upcoming season.
The decision to return to Egypt clearly paid off as Steven Van Broeckhoven finished fourth in the recent PWA Surf World Cup at Podersdorf, whilst the king of the double spock Yegor Popretinskiy finished in equal seventeenth with Tony Mottus.
The movie features a great mix between the biggest and most powerful new school maneuvers, such as radical burner 900’s and spock culos to old school moves like willy skippers and lollypop variations. This brings a refreshing feel to one of the most heralded spots in the world.
