The 2005 Catalunya Costa Brava PWA Super X World Cup - Registration Day
The 2005 Catalunya Costa Brava PWA Super<PHOTO1>X World Cup – Summary Registration Day
With registration out of the way, the fleet is ready for some heavy duty Super X action. Judging by the entry list, leader of the pack Matt Pritchard (US-10, Tabou/ Gaastra) is going to have a hard time holding onto the top slot of the ranking. Taking first prize in Catalunya last year and second place earlier this year in Leucate, Frenchman Cyril Moussilmani (F-71, Fanatic) will surely be going for gold this time. Undoubtedly he can already feel the number three on the ranking list, UK’s Robby Swift (K-89, JP/ Neil Pryde) breathing down his neck.
Other challengers for the crown are Norwegian Spaniard Vidar Jensen (N-44, North), USA’s Kevin Pritchard (US-3, Starboard/ MauiSails), British veteran Nik Baker (K-66, Mistral/ North), his fellow countryman John Skye (K-57, F2), Frenchman Julien Taboulet (F-100, JP/ Neil Pryde), Holland’s Peter Volwater (H-24, F2) and the leading wave champion Josh Angulo (US-11), all having a go at getting their names engraved on the 2005 Super X trophy.
