Event description and NOR

Gran Canaria Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge – Virtual-WORLDWIDE Speed Windsurf Event

Period 1: 21.05.-21.06.20 / Period 2: 01.07.-31.08.20

This year, in this exceptional situation that the whole world is experiencing with all the limitations that are being imposed on us, we are happy to continue with the competition format that we have been carrying out since 2015 and to make it even more interesting for all windsurfers.

As a tribute to the Defi Wind we’ll have a first period from the 21st of May till the 21st of June and as an ADD ON a second period from the 01.07. till the 31st of August.

Because it’s also our main motivation to mobilize the entire windsurfing community and regain relative normality through our sport as soon as possible using current technology to compete together from any country in the world without traveling, while promoting windsurfing as an ecological sport and healthy lifestyle.


Make sure that you don’t miss a period because the winners will be the ones with the fastest Average of the two rounds (considering always the fastest av. Speed on 250m)


After being in lockdown for several weeks we are sure that we are all really looking forward to get back on the water.


Whats NEW this year?


this year we’ll also rank:

(what’s alpha race? A small explanation for those who do not know what it is, is to do a distance of 250mts a jibe and another 250mts back. The trick is that there can be no more than 50m between the starting point and the return point, and this is where the ability of the windsurfer to set the fastest round-trip course and tell you about the pass comes into play.)


So everybody starts to tune his gear because this year the fastest can win:

  • Cool Windsurf accessories from SEVERNE,
  • Premium memberships from GPS-SPEEDSURFING,
  • Stylish clothing from FUERTE ACTION
  • and of cause, caps, lenyards and shirts from Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge


Allowed GPS Devices you’ll find on www.gps-speedsurfing.com  


Every registered windsurf spot is valid.

Just switch on your GPS, go to the water and sail as fast as you can.
