The second PWA World Tour event is over. I will not talk about too much since you can read the event summary here. Maui Sails also posted a nice even report. Down below you can watch al the videos of the event.
This World Cup had several remarkable things. Did you miss Micah Buzianis? That’s right, he is injured again. He has a broken foot. Luckily he is still able to surf as you can read in this interview. They also talk about how the JP boards are developed and what is plans are for this year.
Steve Allen was ranked 10th this event. Not so remarkable since he is a great windsurfer but all the windsurfing equipment he was on was bought by himself! You would not expect that of such a talented windsurfer. On Continent Seven you can read why.
Antoine Albeau is ranked second in this event. Luckily for him was the last race canceled. Why? well, he is also injured. He has something strange with his hand. He will be checked out when he is back in France. Hopefully he and Micah will be recovered for the Ulsan PWA World Cup in Korea.
