This is the single elimination ladder out of the PWA site.
And here you find some videos. On the same page, you'll find the videos of the Cabo Verde event too... quite a difference in the conditions!
But Guincho is a great place. I went there for windsurfing vacations three times and I was never disappointed with the wind (often so strong to require a 3.5) and the waves. Now that I live in Maui though, I don't think I would still like it that much... cold water, side-on wind and kind of messy waves... I'm so spoiled!
Back to the contest. I'm flabbergasted that PWA hasn't found yet a sponsor that would finance the live webcast of the events. All ASP surf contests are webcasted. I understand that the money involved in the surfing industry is probably 10 times bigger than the windsurfing one, but it just seems to me that a live webcast of a wave windsurfing event would be seen by enough people to justify the investment!
Whatever. If they won't have it for the next November Aloha Classic, I'm ready to do a quasi-live coverage. Meaning, shoot and comment live all the heats, then go back home and put them on the web. But I need sponsors for that (otherwise I'd rather be judging...).
So, windsurf companies, magazines, clothing companies, any companies go ahead and email me if interested in supporting this initiative.
What else we got... another magic little video. It's the SUP surfing sesh in which I tested Dolf's SOS 11.11.
I love my little water proof camera. And you guys should love it too. Especially the ones that have never been to Maui. Check out the colors of the water, the mountain and the sky... turn on the heater in your cold room if you live in the southern hemisphere and imagine to be surfing in Maui...

Ah, those disks in the movie Strange Days... you guys at GoPro must invent something like that soon!
Anything else? Oh, check this short video of Hot Sails Maui french team rider Bruno Andre. Effortless taka in light wind. I got to learn some new moves. That looks like something not too crazy/dangerous to try...
Allright, off to Kanaha to give Sharon a windsurf lesson... bloody exciting!!!!
Well, since I went to Kanaha, but it was way too windy and gusty to teach (and learn) any windsurfing, we just sat and watched the Maui race series.
Here's a nice shot of a start.
More photos of the races and of the b(e)low subject here.
Fakeness rules in these spiritually poor times. I bet this girl was already real hot before she did her boob job. Now, she's fake hot.
Do you guys know any other animal that do things like these?
The human race... we are really something!
