The first event of the PWA wave tour has been postponed to later in the year. The Hawaii Pro was due to be held at Hookipa Beach park from the 26 March to 2nd April but due to sponsor issues, it will now be held later in the year. Boardseeker speculate that this will be in October or November as the Hawaiian swell all but disappears in the summer months. So it could be the final wave event after Sylt which would make for a more exciting contest as sailors battle for final ranking points.

If you want to remember some of the action from the 2005 event, then go to our SPECIAL FEATURE from the May 05 Boardseeker issue.
