The scenery, the mouth-watering delicacies, the drinks and wines, and the service… it all came to harmony and made this evening unforgettable. Rainer was the only man standing in the kitchen and still managed to prepare the dishes on time for all those present. Hanna attended all tables with her love and care and let us feel welcome.

Casper's Bar - Corralejo: new floor with artificial grass.

News Article from "La Provincia":

El Casper's Bar es un local de chill out en Corralejo

laprovincia.es

Casper's Bar es un bar de cócteles belgas situado junto a la costa de Corralejo en Fuerteventura. Desde hace ya cinco años, su propietario, Pierre Houbrechts y su perro, un cocker spaniel llamado Casper, se asentaron en la isla y crearon lo que llaman un "bar chill out". El Casper's Bar es un lugar en el que disfrutar de un ambiente relajado y una atmósfera tranquila, con un decorado muy particular.

El Casper's cuenta con sillones cómodos adornados con cojines de colores, paredes coloridas y mesas que imitan los estilos de los jardines clásicos, pero es en el suelo donde se encuentra parte de su encanto. "Arena fuera, hierba dentro", bromea su dueño, porque parte del local tiene una base de césped, con sus mesas y encima y sus sillones alrededor, como una parte más del decorado.

Una particularidad que lo acerca a la tranquilidad, al ambiente chill out, pero que no lo aleja de la modernidad, por lo que todos los clientes tienen acceso gratuito a la conexión wi-fi que ofrecen dentro del local. Desde el Casper's hasta el mundo debería ser su lema, ¿te atreves a visitarles?

{/slide}After 2 successful years, the FWC have decided to adapt the concept of the event with the idea of further pushing the action! The riders will still judge themselves but will have fight to win the FWC 2011 individual tittle this time. To ensure sportsmanship and fairness we will have an independent head judge to oversee the event. We hope to be able to offer you more radical images like this, and, at the end of the event we will have a male and female FWC 2011 champion. (Info FWC)
