We are really delighted to have the 2017 Atlantic Freestyle Football Tour accompany us throughout the ThunderCat racing season, providing great entertainment and spectacle on shore for the visiting general public. Scores of freestyler footballer from across the world descended on Fistral Beach to coincide with the first two rounds of our championship, to take part in the first event in the inaugural Atlantic Freestyle Football Open.
Hundreds of spectators took in the excitement against the stunning backdrop of the competing ThunderCat powerboat Racing UK, who thrashed their high-speed power boats along the shoreline.
Onshore Dutchman Jesse Marlet wowed the prestigious judging panel and took the Open and Sick 3 titles, with Irishman Conor Reynolds earning the Challenge spoils, both displaying an incredible range of skills and talent.
