With the PWA about to kick things off in Tenerife, the press officer has released the official event preview, stating that \’the forecast for the second event … is absolutely epic with strong wind and big waves being predicted. This means that we are guaranteed another breathtaking show from the most extreme sailors in the world.\’ With a huge buzz of excitment in the air you will once again be able to follow the heats live on our sister site boards.co.uk and perhaps even get your questions answered by some of the top pros themselves.
We have a couple videos to help you check out the conditions, both brilliantly edited by BJ productions.
In the second video Dany Bruch and Adam Lewis are on fire. Both are very much locals in Tenrife now and both have the potential to be right at the top of the rankings for this event. We have to point out that since the video Lewis has moved to Patrik Diethelm boards and judging by news on their new UK site (www.patrikuk.com) he is tuning in well, we will certainly keep our eye on him.
Talking of UK sailors, there is our fair share competing this year. In the mens we have have Jamie Hancock, Phil Horrocks, Ben Proffitt, John Skye, Adam Lewis, Robby Swift and Ross Williams. In the womens, unfortunately there are no UK entries but there is a huge entry of 14 girls this year with one \’close to UK\’ girl, Irelands very own Katie McAnena. We sure hope she doesn\’t mind us saying that…
In other news PWA Freestyle World Champion Steven Van Broeckhoven has been busy, photo shooting in Maui, training in Egypt, coaching in Italy at the Shaka Bump and Jump and now in Fuerte preparing for the forthcoming PWA stop. Talking of the Shaka Bump and Jump, a whole host of kids in the area were lucky enough to get soem coaching from the champ himself last week. There is a cool gallery and a few words on continentseven.com and check out our headline image, one seriously tweaked shuv-it spock by SVB.
Finally, we wrap up with none other than Jem Hall, one of the UK\’s finest coaches, he has just returned from \’reliable Rhodes\’ where bringing windsurfing to the masses was his task. Read all about it on his blog update.
