Swell is building!

The PWA Aloha Classic Presented by JP-Australia – Day 4

Solid logo high swell and building Easterly winds fail to deliver their early promise leaving PWA sailors high and dry at Ho’okipa Beach Park

There was a clear improvement in the swell conditions with frequent, logo high, set waves hitting the point early this morning. Initially light winds eventually settled down to a more consistent Easterly direction as the wind line moved in from farther out to sea and filled the bay. With good waves and strengthening winds there was genuine potential for competition conditions.

However, within an hour of the wind moving in, it began to back off and by early afternoon the waves were once again glassy. With no sign of improvement in the conditions, competition was called off for the day at 16.00.

With superior swell conditions and forecasts for more stable winds, the outlook for the remainder of the week is positive. Check out the action so far at www.pwaworldtour.com and download the latest video action from the event at

The show starts up at 10.00 tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned to www.pwaworldtour.com for all the latest news as it happens.
