Surfs Up!

Hundreds of spectators are expected to descend on Pozo, as it’s affectionately called, to witness the windsurfing worlds most experienced sailors take to the waves.

Gran Canaria is regarded as a Mecca for windsurfers as the area surrounding Pozo is famous for its great wind conditions and safe surf areas. There are numerous windsurfing schools situated along the south coastal areas, and when the wind is up the ocean is awash with surfers.

Big favourites in the men’s category this year are locals Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Phillip Koster and in the women’s category the unstoppable Moreno Twins, also from Gran Canaria are favourites yet again.

Paul Griffiths from the PWA sums it up,

"This year the highly anticipated showdown in Pozo Izquierdo, Gran Canaria marks the opening of the PWA wave world tour. The most impressive male and female windsurfers from around the globe will battle it out from the 6th to the 9th of July in the relentless winds and waves for their share of the €45,000 prize purse, as well as gaining precious points towards their overall world ranking. The awesome conditions found at this highly regarded destination allow the sailors to perform the most extreme and radical manoeuvres known to windsurfing. Expect insane action and top competition from the world's best riders."
