Check out the action shot by UMI in Gran Canaria during the first PWA wave contest of the year by following this link HERE. And, don't forget to turn it to full screen mode and on to HD for the ultimate viewing experience.


The video is packed full of the top three sailors in Pozo powering round the most awesome jumps, and wave riding trickery despite the less than ideal conditions. This year's event champion, Victor Fernandez (Fanatic, North, MFC) can be seen spinning round some insane tweaked pushloop tabletops, as well as linking technical turns on the waves with some excellent takas - that's surely what won him the contest.

Alongside Fernandez, the 2009 event champion and 2010 runner up, Philip Koster (Starboard, NeilPryde, Dakine) shows us perhaps the most stylish forward loop ever caught on camera (@ 3 min). The young champion gets so much height, stalls it for as long as possible, and then pulls the trigger at the last possible moment gaining maximum style points from the judges and his peers.

Also, check out the moves that the triple loop dare devil, Ricardo Campello (JP, NeilPryde, MFC) used to fight his way back to third through this year's double elimination. He sailed heat upon heat in fine style to take the scalps off the likes of Jonas Ceballos (Mistral, Simmer), Dany Bruch (Patrik, Severne), Robby Swift (JP, NeilPryde), Marcillio Browne (Fanatic, North, MFC), and Dario Ojeda (Tabou, Simmer, Dakine, MFC) before finally being halted in his tracks by kid Koster!
