With PWA Pozo set to kick off today, despite the PWA hype word is that this year\’s event is proving a distinctly more low-key affair so far – at least according to CUTRE\’s Pozo News. The Moreno twins aren\’t best impressed either. But Phil Horrocks\’ blog on our forum is again proving to be the place to keep up with all the latest. It\’s descended to footie banter this morning, but yesterday\’s post on the relative merits of mushy takas and backside grubbies has got people thinking… Meanwhile, here\’s the latest Pozo Wave entry list.
So far conditions have been living down to expectations too, as John Skye testifies: to see for yourself check out SWA man-of-the-moment SJ\’s Pozo Fun 2010. Continent Seven have some fresh footage from Kai Lenny too.
Meanwhile Fuerte\’s looking altogether more appealing if Ryan Humphrey\’s boom-mount riding movie is anything to go by. And down south Sotavento is presumably gearing up on a slightly larger scale – here\’s how Dan Ellis is preparing for PWA Slalom at the end of the month…
Anyway, it\’s been a while, so today\’s movie takes us back out into the Pacific for some nose-mount Hawaiian waveriding goodness from RRD / NeilPryde rider Fabrice Beaux on Oahu. That certainly ain\’t Pozo!
Whilst we\’re out that way, it\’s worth keeping up with Chris Freeman\’s new blog as he takes 60 days off from work in Bahrain for a long summer back home in Hawaii. Challenge one? The Quicksilver Cup on 17 July as part of the popular Maui Race Series.
Fancy winning £100 for barely a minute\’s work? Our new publishers are compiling fresh demographic data, and will be giving the cash to one lucky respondant. And so far the odds of winning look pretty damned good. Here\’s the short (8 question) survey.
And finally, it\’s good to hear Ferring\’s Sam Darkin got back onto the water on Sunday after that pesky cast was removed from his arm. As 90% of the South Coast\’s windsurfing population will probably agree, it was hardly a classic day but great to be out again!
