From the inside we’ve heard that there are two people who have strong prospects to make the top spot, both have, or still do, compete on the PWA and both will be fighting hard to become their national champion. Peter Volwater and Kevin Meevisen are certainly these two favourites for the competition but never forget the locals, the guys who always windsurf at home are sometimes the ones ready to cause the biggest upsets.

Over to Nick who will begin updating from Sunday morning, just check the posts below.
