The three-time world champion Víctor Fernández will continue to carry the image of El Ejido around the world

The Governing Board approved this August the extension for one year of the sports advertising sponsorship contract with the Ejidense

The three-time World Windsurf Champion Víctor Fernández will continue one more year carrying the image of El Ejido and promoting his land around the world.

Earlier this month, the Governing Board of the City Council of El Ejido approved the renewal of the sports advertising sponsorship contract for an amount close to 8,600 euros for this ejido resident who has become one of the best ambassadors of the image of this land in the world, as an excellent tourist destination, quiet and safe, ideal for practicing sports, linking its own image to that of El Ejido. A sponsorship whose main purpose is for the athlete from Ejido to promote the brand 'El Ejido Gourmet Quality'.

And it is that the Ejidense coast is known by athletes for its good conditions for practicing different water sports, in addition to the fact that for years it has hosted one of the national tests and has also hosted international windsurfing tests.

Effort, perseverance and work have become the keys to the success of this man from Ejido who continues to strive every year to continue expanding his list of titles.

In fact, just a few days ago, between July 9 and 17, Pozo Izquierdo Beach, in Gran Canaria, hosted the third round of the 2022 Windsurfing World Cup circuit, the second in the wave category , where the man from Ejido faced Philip Köster in the simple eliminatory rounds, who ended up beating Víctor Fernández.

The next round of the Windsurfing World Cup will be in Hawaii.

Víctor Fernández is the best windsurfer of the last decade in the wave modality, the most extreme. In this category he has managed to add three world titles, the last one on the world circuit in 2018, along with those of 2010 and 2016, in addition to the six runner-up finishes achieved in 2007, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Similarly, the three-time world champion continues to run his center 'Víctor Fernández Center' in Almerimar with great success, from where he promotes this sport among young people, in which he has an outstanding academy that is already beginning to stand out.
