Windsurfing savant Philip Köster has just taken the 2012 PWA Wave World Cup.
This is following his 2011 win.
That is to say, we got the windsurfing news in our inbox this morning after one of the youngest windsurfers on the tour snagged up enough points at the PWA KIA World Hawaii World Cup “as the sun set on Wednesday evening” to confirm his standings, according to the Sail-world.com. Read more
Here at Sportbay, we have been missing our old friends.
We are talking about you, our blog readers. And we have been neglecting you. For that, we have infinite remorse.
But we will make it up to you.
Old friends are like your favorite blanket. Or like your particular brand of ice cream. Or like the best book you ever read Read more

In the Land of the Franks, passion and emotion run high as they have for centuries and as they will for centuries.
When it comes down to the zeitgeist of the French culture, Sportbay has nothing but respect for our neighbors to the west.

Down in the Caribbean Sea, the water is hot and the winds are ripping.
On these cold Hamburg days, Sportbay wishes we could move our office many places but putting our offices down on the shores of St. Martin sounds just about perfect.

Hailing from the French side of the island, Caizergues made a record kite crossing between St. Martin and St. Barthélemy, according to Surfertoday.com. Read more

The Sportbay Team was anxious for any news from the opening event of the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour.
However, when we awoke this morning we found that the pros down at the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast are enjoying the day off, according to the ASP.

In between Dakar, Senegal and Saint-François, Guadelope there is a lot of empty ocean.
In fact, there is more than 2,170 miles (3,500 kilometers) of nothing more than 30 foot (9 meter) rolling waves, 40 knot winds and many sea creatures in between those two points.
Some say there are serpents there.
However, there is another. Sarah Hebert. Read more
In the world’s oceans, there is one animal that never fails to inspire fear in those who dip their toes into the waters.
However, there are more misconceptions about this animal than almost any other carbon-based creature on Earth.
Nothing could make this more apparent than the “Tea Party” at the Sea Life London Aquarium, presented by Mirror. Read more
