News Headlines – Thu 20th

It was a surprise day of double elimination pro action yesterday at BWA Ireland, and apologies that our forum updates finished on a cliffhanger … turns out Graham Woods made it through to face 4th placed Timo Mullen, but the heat was abandoned after the wind died. See the official report – and for a better taste of the action, Alfie\’s latest episode from Brandon Bay has finally dripped down the wire.


Talking of unexpected action, the Essaouria Wave Classic scored a bonus day at Moulay Bouzerkton. Team Fettah Lamara are leading going into the last day with Boujmaa Guilloul, Graham Ezzy and Leo Ray all on form. The event\’s been getting decent (French language) TV coverage too.

But Korea is easily getting the biggest mainstream press coverage right now. Although hopefully there\’s no link whatsoever between the PWA Ulsan Slalom \’blog wars\’ declared earlier this week and the threats of all-too-real war coming out of North Korea. But that Kim Jong-il\’s been known to follow some surprising media in the past, so let\’s not tempt fate any more, eh? Day 6 of PWA Ulsan in South Korea has just finished with Albeau still dominant in the men\’s and Jaggi in the ascendancy in the women\’s fleet. See the day 5 footage here…

With the Hove leg of the EFPKT kids\’ freestyle due this summer, take a look at what happened in round two courtesy of G-315, Valentin Boeckler.

There\’s more on Witchcraft\’s prototype Wasp flex-tail from shaper, Bouke, who claims it\’s turning really tight in early tests. Worth keeping an eye on…

But our favourite Canarian communique today is this movie from Jonas Ceballos and friends out in Pozo on Monday. Enjoy!
