Pozo delivered the howling winds it is renowned for over the last 7 days with winds approaching 50 knots accompanied with small waves for the Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival. Despite the small waves on offer, the action on offer was anything but small as the most talented wave sailors in the world produced a remarkable display to kick off the 2017 PWA Wave World Tour in spectacular fashion.
Victor Fernandez makes a solid start to his title defence and continues his incredible run in Pozo, which has seen him finish in the top 2 since 2006 – highlighting his unbelievable consistency and world class sailing ability and he’s perfectly poised heading into Tenerife. Also Adam Lewis produced one of his best heats against Alex Mussolini in the single elimination end finished within the Top Ten in 7th!
