Mo or No?
The people have their say: Cast your vote on windsurfings controversial new accessory, the 'mo'.
With the 2008 season now in full swing and one event from each discipline completed, the PWA sailors have had the chance to show off all their latest toys and accessories.
You’d normally expect this to involve some sort of bragging and one-upmanship as the latest laptops, mp3s, and gadgets are revealed, however 2008 is proving to be a slightly different story.
Overshadowing all the technical wizardry is an entirely new approach to outdo rivals, in the form of some of the most aggressive facial topiary seen on the tour to date.
Fronting the charge is US-3, Kevin Pritchard (Starboard, Gaastra), who’s been sporting arguably the most assertive moustache of all the sailors. The ‘mo’, stirred up huge controversy at the recent PWA event in Korea, attracting both abuse and praise in similar measures.
Trapped in a fashion dilemma, KP has decided to let the fans decide the fait of the mo. Have your say by logging on to the brothers’ website, www.pritchardwindsurfing.com and cast your vote. Mo, or no?
