PWA Aloha Classic 2006
Maui, Hawaii, USA

Another beautiful, scorching, light wind day at Ho'okipa has left all eyes on weather forecasts for the remaining two days of this year's PWA Wave Tour Final, the PWA Aloha Classic 2006 Presented by JP-Australia. After several days of light winds, the varied weather forecasts have now started to converge predicting 15 knot east to northeast winds giving the green light for action.

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.
