2006 London Boat Show In Association with The Daily Mail - Preview
As the year 2005 draws to a close, the crème de la crème of windsurfing is preparing to re-enter the PWA arena in 2006, kicking off another action filled season with the € 75,000 prize purse London Boat Show In Association with The Daily Mail.
<PHOTO1>For the past two years, the highly popular indoor event has attracted the PWA’s finest and 2006 will be no different. Signed up already among others are three times freestyle world champion Ricardo Campello (V-111, JP/ Neil Pryde), 2005 wave world champ Kauli Seadi (BRA-253, Quatro/ Naish), Hawaiian wave legend Josh Angulo (US-11) and 2005 vice wave world champion Nik Baker (K-66, Mistral/ North Sails). Ready to raise a storm in the women’s field are the Moreno Twins (Mistral, North Sails), without a doubt cranking the level of action up another notch this year, and more top women entries will surely follow.
Last year’s greatly improved sailing situation in the pool produced some of the hottest never seen before action on the spectacular jump ramp, with extreme jumps such as air chachoo’s, table top forwards and big pushloops being rule rather than exception. The crowds are guaranteed to get a radical treatment in indoor wizardry again in 2006 as the sailors will be even more accustomed to the conditions than before. You can only wonder which insane moves the riders have up their sleeves this year, but it you just know it’s going to be sensational.
Same as last year, the disciplines at the London Boat Show are slalom, freestyle and jumping. The PWA action commences on Thursday the 12th of January with a jumping super session. After that it’s three days of all discipline competition until the victors are crowned on Sunday the 15th.
Tickets are available at the London Boat Show website.
