PWA lainesõiduhooaja avalöögini on jäänud vaid loetud päevad, 13. reedel antakse start tõenäoliselt aasta kõige oodatumale võistlusele. Cabo Verde lainesõiduvõistlus on surfiringkondades juba üksjagu elevust tekitanud – alates väga piiratud osavõtjate arvu kritiseerimisest kuni Kauli Seadi Quatro/JP neljauimelise laua piltide netti lekkimiseni. Lahing parimate vahel tõotab tulla äärmiselt põnev.
maui.ee’l õnnestus end libistada võistluste patrooni ja Cabo Verde surfisaadiku Josh Angulo tihedasse graafikusse ning esitada talle mõned küsimused:
maui.ee: So in a few days, the most exhilarating windsurfing competition will take place in Cabo Verde. How good conditions have you had there and what can we expect for the competition?
Josh: Conditions have been great since Christmas, We have had a lot of variety in sailing conditions and there has been fantastic wavesailing sessions for everybody of every wave level;, from small waves to big. It has been very windy so many spots are working and catching windswell as well as groundswell, so we’re having a lot of fun.
maui.ee: It has been all over the internet, that Kauli has been working there on his new quadfins, but which other pro riders are also there already and who are ripping?
Josh: Another sailor that came early and has been really charging and sailing well is Dany Bruch for Tenerife. He may surprise some people this year.
maui.ee: What can we expect from “king of Punta Preta” Josh Angulo this year? What does it take to get that throne back?
Josh: I feel that my sailing has been strong and I look forward to a strong effort. Hopefully with some good size swell, the conditions will favor my style.
maui.ee: What do you think about the PWA wave calendar for 2009?
Josh: Looks the same as ever. I’m actually really more excited about the slalom schedule.
Thank you very much Josh and all the luck to you in the comp!
