Last week we enjoyed superb conditions here in Murcia. Nice and long waves with side off shore wind… it seemed Baja!!!
I hadn´t enough time to take many pics but I hope that you like them anyway.
The rider is my brother Jaime Bernardeau armed with his RRD wave cult 90.

Brest, 13-14 October 2009
No official result for this Breton event. Average wind speed from 4 to 6 knots all the week end long and just a 20 minutes of a shy wind increasing to 8-9 knots.
Really a pity, many motivated riders were waiting on the beach always ready to jump in the water to test the new RRD stuffs as soon as a gust breeze over the water.
It was pretty shocking see many riders planning with just 6 knots of wind, running upwind, tacking and jibing during their first session ever with RRD K-Race and RRD Addiction 12!
To sum up: Brest is a well known place for race and its racing culture, with an organization simply outstanding, a great welcome, a great atmosphere and beautiful pictures. The wind was the only AWOL, which has also prevented us from attending to a great competition in water.
3eme Etape de la Kite Race Monotype
"BREST 13/14 Octobre 2009"
Pas de course, sur cette étape Brestoise, 4 a 6 Nds de vent pendant ce week end et un très timide 8/9 Nds pendant 15 a 20 minutes,
Dommage, car il y avait un très beau plateau de rider très motivés, au moindre souffle de vent beaucoup partent sur l'eau pour tester.
Impressionné par quelques riders qui a 6 Nds naviguent..... remonté au vent, virement de bord, jibe avec la K Race et Addiction 12m !!!, matos qu'il n'ont "pas" encore en main. C'est confirmé, il y a une vraie culture historique et reconnue de régatier et compétiteur a Brest.
Conclusion : Une Organisation en béton Armé du mag Kite +, un super accueil, une très bonne ambiance, de belles photos il ne manquait que le vent pour avoir j'en suis sur une magnifique compétition sur l'eau.
Merci au FKA, Kite +

I just won single elimination.
And this is a good occasion to thanks again my sponsor FIAT who provide me a superb car, the Croma, ideal for long ways, and in which I can put all my gear!
We could make a really good show to everyone, with aerial tricks (big board off) and wake style of course to be complete and varied.
Double elimination start today, with a wind a little bit more onshore. Like I won the single, I just have to wait for all the riders to do their heats to then confirm my 1st place!
Si è trattato di un vero SUCCESSO!

Last one was held on Sunday 18.10. on Slovenian small coast in town called Izola. Conditions were more than crazy. Super choppy with gusty and very cold wind. Despite all the craziness we finished a full double elimination.
Heats were extended on 8min in single and 7min in double elimination, so it was fair for everyone. Judges decided to judge by overall impression system (EFPT). There were 13 competitors, which is very good for a so small country. At the beginning the wind was light, so I used 5.2 and RRD Twintip 100l, but later in the final I was powered up with 3.7!!!
Heat after heat I showed better action on the water and victory of single elimination was mine. After the single I had to wait for about an hour for my opponent coming to challenge me from the double elimination.
It was again Zan Sude who wanted the revenge. Wind was very tricky this time, so it was a lottery to choose the right sail. I took 4.3 and it was just enough. Zan and me were both fighting hard in very difficult conditions. My performance was better and the judges were convinced. Marko Simic was third, Zan Sude second and I became Slovenian freestyle champion! The season was really good for me and I will do my best to be even better in the next year.
