Looking like an action packed year if the wind plays ball. I think Mother Nature might pay up for the wind debt this year, been a long time coming.

If they can secure that Morocco event, there might even be a wave tour worthy of the name for the first time in ages! As it stands its still a port tack cross-on wave tour, 'cos all the port tack x-on specialists can just discard Maui. Many probably won't even go there. Not that I don't like those events (IMO Pozo is the best to watch of anywhere), its just very unbalanced without some starboard tack or groundswell venues.

Good to see more freestyle events too - Portugal could be a great event.

Good to see Hvide Sande back on the calendar, they had a good IFCA Slalom there last year. The recent years French Slalom event at Marignane has had decent wind, so hopefully another good Slalom season on the cards.

The Portugal event has been binned, a great shame as it was brilliant last year.

Yes - they had possibly the best ever Women's Freestyle event and conditions,and spectacularly good slalom conditions.

Maybe they were lucky but it will be worth looking at when the time comes to see what they would have had condition-wise. Certainly if 2018 was typical, it is one of the best venues the PWA has gone to.
