After finishing in style the PWA season, where Paré matched his last year's ranking by placing 11th, the Catalan young prospect headed off to Scotland to compete at the 28th edition of the Tiree Wave Classic, the longest running professional windsurfing event in the world. Last year Paré already took part in this popular competition plenty of Top PWA athletes. He finished in 2nd place, so this season he was really looking forward to taking home the Tiree sword.

Despite the always extreme and difficult wind and sea conditions delivered by the Tiree, Paré felt comfortable on his Simmer Style set from the very beginning. However, things didn't go to plan after getting into the semifinals. An unfortunate issue with his clock meant that Paré ran out of time and didn't have the chance to finish his round, so he was dropped to the double.

This was an important set back for the youngster, but there was still a chance to win coming from the double. And what a double. Paré jumped back into the water and was able to make it through seven heats to reach the final, something that left everyone following the event pretty amazed. In the final he faced Adam Lewis (ranked 6th in the PWA), the same athlete he had to compete against in last year's edition at this deciding stage of the competition. But this time it was Paré who was victorious after defeating the Brit in the Super Final and the final to grab the Tiree sword and raise it high as the new king of the Tiree Wave Classic. 

This is obviously an outstanding end to Paré's Wave season, in which he has been able to finish 11th in the PWA World Ranking and win one of the most prestigious events of the windsurfing calendar.


"Things didn't begin well for me as I had an early exit in the single. The heats were short, and I had a problem with my clock in the semifinals, which left me without a time reference while in the round. I couldn't complete it, so I dropped to the double. We started the same day, and I was able to bounce back from the bottom to reach the final after overcoming 7 heats. As last year, I had to battle against Adam Lewis, we both made great performances, but this time the victory was mine, so beyond stoked for that. There was a lot of level in this year's event, everyone was sailing amazing, and we had super close heats. I couldn't take the sword home in 2017, so pretty pumped to have made it this season".
