News Headlines – Mon 23rd

Good morning all, we were hoping to have a whole host of PWA Fuerteventura news for you today, but despite 3 months of solid winds, the day the competition starts is the same day the switch is turned off. Two days have passed now and the local effect known as Calima is in full swing. According to one of our UK riders who is on the scene, Adam Sims, there is no knowing how long it can go on for, however, many of the locals suggest the usual weather pattern will be back today.

For our first video, Sims has met up with BlackLab\’s Josh Willmot to produce this nice warm up clip. Some decent action with a few words from the freestyle side of the event.

It\’s PWA Slalom for the first 5 days so chances are high for some action today with the slightly lower wind requirement. Whilst you are waiting for it, check out the PWA\’s round up clip from day 1. Hopefully, we will have day 2 for you later, in the meantime here are the reports; Day 1, Day 2 and C7 Day 2

Back to freestyle and one of the hottest competitors for this event has to be Martin Van Ochten. In fact he only seals the deal with his latest video release. Check out the air chachoos, double forwards, combined with all the latest freestyle moves and all on both tacks!

Our final video for this morning comes from Kai Lenny, who sailed across Lake Michigan not so long ago.

Finally, our last snippet comes from the Red Bull Storm Chase, who have announced that there will be 5 substitues for the chase. Find out who they are here.

We\’ll catch up with you later, with more news from here in PWA Fuerteventura.
