With the PWA circus distributing itself throughout Europe, many are making their way to the Canary Islands for the whole sheebang; Freestyle, Wave and Slalom.
Some have been stopping off in Pozo to get used to the atomic winds and harsh conditions before settling at the relatively calm Costa Teguise for the first of the Slalom 42 and freestyle legs.
Pozo though has been showing what it is all about; big waves and gnarly winds. Kevin Pritchard has been making the most of the conditions:
“Today had some of the best waves I have ever seen in Pozo. It was some logo high sets with some closeout waves. I even got worked a couple of times and that is pretty rare for Pozo! I sailed on 4.2 Legend and that sail felt really nice. The new Maui Sails are really working great. It is always nice to have a 4.2 sail that is working great. Feels like a big sail but small. It breaths, it opens up, it isn\’t super twitchy.. all the things necessary for a good time in windy conditions! “
Well there you have it! The PWA Pozo event begins on July 9th. The Slalom & Freestyle event in Lanzarote begins this Saturday 30th June.
