If the company Open Ocean Media was in charge of the whole organization on the 1st edition of the "Reunion Wave Classic" in 2009, local rider Pierre Godet really got involved in the project since last year. Thanks to his efforts, the Regional Council supported the event in 2010 and also this year again.
"This year we are the unique organizers of the "Reunion Wave Classic" through our association "Reunion Windsurf". We have completed the first two editions in exceptional conditions of wind and waves, we expect even better this year. We have spent a lot of energy on this project with the help of our partners. We are now in the starting blocks for a great show. It's just a bit sad that some top riders declined the invitation to our contest, maybe because they fear the local extreme conditions ;-)... "
