Last Bank Holiday weekend saw turmoil unfold in the windsurfing world, without a doubt the top news story this week has been the removal of windsurfing as an Olympic class. We are sure the discussion will continue for a long time yet, as we battle to reinstate to sport for the 2016 games. Boards has covered the events so far within these items, but there is more to come:

The Battle to Reinstate Olympic Windsurfing

How the Olympic decision affects Team 15

Reaction from Women’s Olympic Coach Dom Tidey

Despite this shocking news, we have also seen a large amount of positive and exciting news from many younger windsurfers.

Alex Halank provided some great Weekend Inspiration with his video ‘Windsurfing’s Dynamite’ and today from George Shillito and the Polkerris Pirates. 

On the competition front Kev Greenslade and James Dinsmore reported from the first windy BSA event of the season, in Weymouth and as this news round up goes live, we will be up in Rhosneigr reporting live from the BWA event. Make sure to stay on Boards for regular updates and check out the event preview.
