If Pozo is like it normally is I would expect to only use 4.5-3.7 sails, all on the 75 Wave Cult. There is actually a high chance I only use 4.2 and 4.0!
SKYE'S PWA QUIVER:
RRD Wave Cult 83. Quad fin set up, with MFC 300 (9cm) Front fins and MFC 250 (14cm) back fins.
RRD Wave Cult 75. Quad fin set up, with MFC 250 (8cm) Front fins and MFC 250 (14cm) back fins.
RRD Four 3.7-5.0.
RRD Gamma 3.3
All rigged with C100 RRD masts and RRD carbon booms.
My highest scoring move will probably be a double. They are not like Philip's but I have been trying them quite a bit through the winter and have reasonable consistency. I think Pozo is the toughest event of the year as the level here is so crazy. If we get the conditions, I think it will be a good show this year!
Consistency, Skye will and can do well in any conditions, he is a seasoned pro and it shows in his heats.
Skye has made it into the top 10 very regularly for a number of years, he could and should be finishing this well again. With Gran Canaria as his home Skye has no excuses for not starting off the PWA year with a solid result.
