From what I read Bjorn got 111, 122 and 133 with him at Alacati and chose 111 and 133.

Totally agree with post 20, if AA is not leading, it is only because he made unusual mistakes! Not because Bjorn changed his boards. Starboard or not, he will finish second as usual at the end of the weeks!

Fortunately, it is still the pilot who makes the result in windsurfing!

Yes he does, therefore he wants a board as good as AA's

A2 won the last heat but Bjorn has still the overall lead by 0.4 points. Whoever wins tomorrow will win the contest. Compared to last year Bjorn is fighting till the end, recovering well from bad starts... I guess he really wants to win this time.
Greetings from Alacati!

I guess both deserve to win, they both showing real hunger for it this year, its great to watch. Lets not forget that bjorn is older & much heavier than A2 and should'nt be able to be this competetive any more (on paper at least), credit where due.

I personally think theres only 3 who could truly win the overall title, A2, Bjorn or KP. I'd love to see A2 dominate for a few sessions (like Bjorn used too), but I'd also like to see Bjorn back in the number one spot before he retires. The younger KP will be number 1 in the future for sure, and will have the likes of Ross Williams snapping at his heels.

Who do you think is going to get the crown this year??

Right, I'm packing my bags and I'm of to sunny Fuerta ror 2-weeks, hope it rains in England whilst I'm gone (but I mean that in a nice way!!!)

The "young" KP is far over 30! KP had his year of dominance in the first half of the 00's. Unfortunately for him, it was the freestyle years in PWA... So this dominance was not converted in many titles as he would deserve...
