    Well let's hope not.
    However I hear that Windsruf magazine are testing in Tenerife this week might be awkward for them as they have had no wind, and that is often the problem when normally-windy spots don't deliver.
    Local wind only this week? Catch it if you can.

    Windsurf have been over there a while and have had some wind maybe not much this week

    SB borrowed some kit of them for a test a few weeks ago

    I'm just pointing out that it's one thing to decide to assemble a team to test kit with the best of intentions to publish what we all want to see.
    But it's another thing to get this done on a limited budget and within a time period if the wind doesn't play ball – as it seems not to be doing this year.

    I'm guessing Windsruf will be hoping to run wave board tests in their September issue.


    Board's testing period is due after the PWA Tenerife competition, so let's hope they get the wind. I imagine these tests are for the winter (wave) issue of Boards.

    Surf Magazin tests their kit at Langebaan every year and they don't seem to ever battle to get the right conditions to test everything from wave to slalom kit. #justsayin ;-)

    not only in Langebaan - they got a trailer and move with the equipment
    to the best suited spot for their needs, depending on the conditions.
    well organized team effort of course
