Last year, I went to Saipan with my Black Team Japan for filming from one our team sponsors: Scosche.
The island is warm, windy and beautiful. Another true paradise that windsurfing likes to make us discover in our world.
Saipan is only 3hours from Japan and not it’s not an expensive island nor to stay or to get there.
For a paradise, a nice apartment is around 1k dollars a month, so I decided to stay the longer and train from mid-Feb to mid-March.
It’s windy every day, so there was no hurry to be on the beach early and I could take time also for other activities, as Yoga, running and any other kind of fitness to integrating my windsurfing training on the water.
On the 11 and 12 of March I took par at the 35th edition from the Micronesian Open Race, organized by the Seawind windsurfing shop from Mr.Tomita. A very traditional race.
The race concept is that everyone can enjoy the same number of races, with a classic easy beach start!
There were prizes for all the riders and a great closing ceremony and dinner at the Hiatt regency of Saipan.
Check out the photos, and thanks everyone on the island for the comfortable hospitality!
