Windsurfers from across Europe took part in the European RS:X Windsurfing Championship held in Tel Aviv.

The event, the first international windsurfing competition since the Beijing Olympics, is one of the most prestigious sporting events of year.

It was organized by the International Olympic Federation and the Israel Olympic Committee, and was held as part of Tel Aviv’s centennial celebrations.

This year’s competition was won by 22-year-old Israeli Shahar Zubari, who won a bronze medal for windsurfing at Beijing last summer.

ISRAEL21c took a trip down to Tel Aviv Marina to talk to participants.
