Despite rumours still flying around the event is on! It's Brandon Bay

again and judging by any competition held here it will be worth the trip. Major

sponsorship by Board Failte, this year sees Proteus and the Jamie Knox Team

organising the event. A festival feel is on this year with a tented village,

planned parties, fashion shows and the worlds best thrashing it out- on the

water! All the big names, big waves, big parties, big fun!

To ease the calls already bombarding Owen, accomodation is scarce for houses

but there are plenty of bed and breakfasts and self catering available from

Board Failte at the visit Ireland website. Kerry is the nearest airport and

Cork the nearest ferry link.

Official dates are 04-10 October

Watch out for Boards mag's PWA supplement in October issue.
