When battle commences tomorrow, Kevin PRITCHARD (USA) will have his work cut out to defend his championship lead ahead of Kauli SEADI (BRA) and Josh ANGULO (CPV), as well as the myriad of local and international talent lined up to try and claim Ho'okipa gold.
Among the women, the dominant Daida MORENO (ESP) will not only have to overcome her sister Iballa and Karin JAGGI (SUI), but also past Ho'okipa winners such as Jennifer HENDERSON (USA) and Motoko SATO (JPN) who will offer a strong challenge to the tour regulars.
With winds already starting to increase at the end of today, the show will start up early at 09:00 local time tomorrow.
Professional Windsurfers Association (PWA) Events are designated as ISAF Special Events. There are five main disciplines that are held on the PWA World Tour: Wave, Freestyle, Race (Slalom 42), Super X and Indoor. Competitors at each World Tour event score points towards the PWA Annual Ranking list. At the end of the season, the sailor with the highest total score in each discipline is the PWA World Champion for that year.
