About

Alessio Stillrich, born in 1995 on Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. He started windsurfing with the age of 9 at Bahia de formas in Arinaga, about 5 kilometers north of Pozo Izquierdo, so he is quite used to strong wind conditions since the very beginning. A big beginner windsurfing board he got as a present from surf school oner Klaus was his ticket to his addiction to the sport. Alessio progressed quickly and soon was one of the standout sailors of his home spot Pozo Izquierdo, where he pushes the boundaries on a daily basis. In recent years Alessio has become a major thread amongst top sailors of the PWA wave tour and added several top results to his belt. Adding perfect double forwards to his repertoire in 2015, the future is looking bright for the young German-Canarian to score some big results very soon.

We’ve seen you choosing the Stubby in the contests when it’s lighter. What do you like a about it?

I think the Stubby is the ideal board for conditions that are maybe not optimal. It is so fast and gets planing so quickly that even if you dont have much power in the sail you still keep going fast and start to plain out of nothing. Also in the wave I have to say that this board is just amazing. You can get a good turn out of nothing, even if the bottom turn is quite slow and does not have much speed, the top turn turns out to be really nice and snappy. I think the stubby even changes a bit my style, but in a good way. Doing wave moves with this board also is a advantage, since it is so short. This helps you a lot spinning them around.

When it’s 50 knots in Pozo you’re riding the Quad, when it’s 4.7 and Masthigh Hookipa you’re on the same board. Why does it work for such opposite conditions?

The Quad is an amazing board. In my opinion it is the board on the range that has the biggest variety when it comes to conditions. This year it is bottom- and top-turning really nice, having the perfect grip for radical top turns but it also allows me to spin around powerful takas or any other wave moves. The board is surprisingly fast also because normally boards that are working so well in the wave maybe loose a bit of speed while normal sailing but its not the case in the 2016 Quad. I can get a lot of speed and fly high always. So this is basically why it works good everywhere. It has nice drive and carve at Hookipa, but also it is a fast board when we speak about planing ability and for good jumping at Pozo or wherever. In Pozo especially the control in high winds and choppy waters is giving me that extra confidence, as the board grips so good with the 4 fins.
