News Headlines – Mon 21st

The Pistol River Wave Bash has, if you\’ll excuse the irresistible pun, been firing over the weekend. And as promised today\’s movie comes from Oregon where Kevin Pritchard has been diligently filming the action having won the single elimination. Enjoy windy day 1 and day 2 on MPORA – and here\’s float-and-ride day 3:


With the latest updates only to the penultimate day so far from Tanya Saleh on, and Pritchard\’s blog, we\’re still waiting to hear whether Francisco Goya was able to overcome KP in the double elimination finals. But we\’re at a complete loss working out whatever happened to the Shadowbox Jump-Off due but never delivered on – no word on the official site yet either…

Here\’s a couple of results we can confirm though: Max Wojcik has retained the Raceboard World Championships in Liepaja after 14 races, and Julien Quentel has been crowned European Slalom Champion.

And looking pretty promising so far, Bryony Shaw (currently ranked first in the world) is sitting second in the Women\’s RS:X fleet at Kiel Week after four races. Good going: let\’s hope she can keep it up until the medal race on Wednesday…

Following confirmation of PWA Pozo, the bloggers are out in force: Dario Ojeda tells us it\’s blowing, Jonas Ceballos has suffered an ear infection and is currently resting up, Kauli\’s acclimatising, CUTRE Pozo News have some nice shots, and Nayra Alonso\’s enjoyed a Vargas session followed by super-windy (3.3m) Pozo while Skyeboy dutifully took the pix. To get you into a Gran Canarian summer mood, check out the Moreno twins\’ latest vid.

And finally, talking of the fairer sex, according to Tatiana Howard the wandering wahines of the Butterfly Effect have arrived in Fiji. Lovely…
