The competition, which was held in Haifa from Thursday to Saturday, also served as preparation for the conditions that are supposed to be at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. An extensive professional team conducted tests and a model in terms of dealing with heat. In the coming week, the team will move to training on the iqfoil surfboard, when the team will travel to Switzerland to participate in the first European Championship in the model. The championship will end in late August.
Gore Steinberg, coach of the men’s team, noted: “The team maintains a high level of fitness ahead of Tokyo by internal competition in the current Olympic model RSX. This way we enable progress and investment towards the move to iqfoil, which will serve as the Olympic surfboard in Paris 2024.”
