The 2007 Gran Canaria PWA Grand Slam – Event Guide
The site of many make-or-break world title showdowns, this nuclear-strength wind and wave machine rarely fails to disappoint. The doors open from July 10th through 18th.
The 2007 multi-discipline Grand Slam will host Slalom Racing, Women’s Freestyle and Men’s and Women’s Wavesailing. The forecast is already indicating some great wind and swell is on its way to treat the crowds.
All the great names and more have signed-up for the cut-throat action at a location where the winners are perhaps the worthiest on tour. Pozo’s also home to a massive amount of world tour pros and the training ground for many more.
The women’s Freestyle contest is unique on the Gran Canaria leg. Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde) took first blood in Lanzarote with her bag of the latest tricks, but she will have to be on top form to hold down Daida Moreno (North) who’ll love the waves that other freestyle tour stops just don’t see. Massive Jumps and the new-skool tricks treat the crowds in Pozo’s beachside amphitheatre and Moreno will be fighting back more than ever after suffering defeat in the opening event. As the top 2 spar, Laure Treboux will be quietly working her magic and could well go all the way in these stronger winds and surf. Treboux shocked the freestyle world on her debut in 2006 and these conditions may be exactly what she needs to take the title.
