COSTA BRAVA PWA FREESTYLE QUALIFIER PREVIEW

Anything Could Happen!

The PWA world tour will shortly be arriving in the Bay of Roses on the

Costa Brava coast of Spain for a 25,000 Euro freestyle qualifier. The

event will take place between the 20th and the 25th of May with

registration on the 20th and official action commencing on the 21st.

Roses, in the North of Costa Brava is one of the best areas in Spain for

windsurfing and other watersports. The sandy Bay, 12 km across, enjoys

regular winds throughout the year, with predominant thermal breezes in the

summer and the infamous Tramontana winds in Spring Winter and autumn. When

the Tramontana sweeps in, entire weeks of 30-knot winds are not uncommon.

Past PWA events have seen both thermal and Tramontana winds at this time

of year so during the event anything could happen!

Roses is also an important area for Spanish tourism, with a range of

campsites, hotels and apartments close to the water. The area abounds in

tourist attractions, which include, beautiful parks, fishing villages and

areas of historical interest.

Costa Brava is the perfect freestyle location and this year will be the

fifth time the PWA have returned to its superb beaches. The mixture of its

excellent conditions combined with its outstanding natural beauty make it

one of the favorite stopovers on the tour for PWA regulars.

Following the 10,000 Euro freestyle super session at Vargas earlier this

month we have already seen a sneak preview of some of the amazing new

moves that have been developed over the winter season. Costa Brava is

likely to be yet another showcase for the latest amazing trickery from the

best in the business on the PWA world tour. The stage is all set for a

mind-blowing week of freestyle action&Bring it on!
