Surf House Ibiza hosts European Flowrider 2015 finals

Saturday 10th October


Surf House Ibiza is to be host for the Flowrider European Championships ahead of the international final for the WFC – World Flow Championships 2015. Saturday 10th October will see thirty athletes from all over Europe compete in the championships which will also see if they get to participate in the international finals, taking place in Bangkok in November this year. It will be the first time the European finals leg of the competition has been held in Spain and it promises to be a great flowriding event.

Marking a big success for its second season of operation, Surf House Ibiza was chosen by Flowrider for the excellence of its facilities, its highly experienced staff and all the work it put in to secure the event being held there. The setting of the venue in the beautiful San Antonio bay and the overall atmosphere of Ibiza also proved to be a winning combination for the selectors.

Throughout the day the athletes will be taking part in the training and qualifying phase of the event, where judges will look at each athlete's style, level of proficiency and ability to meet levels of technical difficulty. The heat will be on to determine who will make it to the World Championships and compete to be crowned the world's number one Flowrider. Spectators can expect to see some top flowriding action with athletes working to prove their mettle on the body and flow boards.

The event is open to the public who can expect to see participants from the Netherlands, Germany, England, Spain, Finland, France and Italy. There will be food and some great music throughout the day for all those coming along. Everyone from families, groups of friends or anyone wishing to see this exciting event is welcome.

Surf House Ibiza will be also be hosting the event next year and hopes to be the regular venue for the Flowrider European event. Berni Faus of Surf House Ibiza says: “It's a great honour for us to be hosting this event and I hope shows what a great job we have all done here to be picked as the venue for this exciting leg of the competition.”

It should all prove to be an exciting full fun packed day for the athletes and all those going to watch (free entrance). Here is the complete programme of events:
