For the 3rd consecutive year, the world’s best Men and Women Super-X racers will descend on Lanzarote’s Costa Teguise, and stake their claims for the 2006 PWA Super-X world titles.
2 Times world champion Matt Pritchard (US-10 Tabou / Gaastra), his brother and current tour leader, Kevin Pritchard (US-3 Starboard / Maui Sails), and many more, will arrive fresh from last weeks action packed Costa Brava Super-X event. The game is wide open, with the closely matched main players aiming to settle their scores, and decide who’ll walk away with the 2006 crown.

In previous seasons, conditions at Costa Teguise have ranged from mast high surf and 45 knot winds, to seasonal Canarian breezes and flatter seas. But with the PWA’s exclusive Super-X discipline, thrills and spills are standard, no matter what the elements throw up.
With a Euro 45,000 purse on offer, there’ll be no prisoners taken as the action kicks off from June 26th through July 2nd.
A trip to witness this spectacle is a must. Featuring a natural viewing area and grandstand on the beach, the Las Cucharas point also provides plenty of space for tourist sailors to sail, whilst accommodating the dedicated PWA arena. Even if the surf kicks in big-time, there are plenty of flat areas well away from the gnarly reefs. If you can’t book a flight to Arrecife to combine watching and sailing, then follow every race at www.pwaworldtour.com Here there’ll be up to the minute results, daily write ups, news, action clips and more.
