The first event of the Freestyle PWA World Cup is over and I take the 2nd place!
Sarah-Quita won the woman event - she's sailing really amazing!- and Gollito the men's. The show was incredible all week long.
I'm really happy with the heats I sailed, and it was a lot of fun sailing the finals with Sarah.
We're off to Gran Canaria for the next event now. It will take place in Pozo from the 4th to the 12th of July with slalom, freestyle and wave action, which is guaranteed to be amazing . I will be doing the freestyle and the wave event.
It's still windy here in Lanzarote, we've done another single and double eliminations, and I'm still ranked 2nd! I've had some tough heats again but sailed well and made it all the way to the final both times, where I met Sara Quita. She was on fire and even though I did some switch moves and shaka she won and I took the second place. I'm so happy!!!
We've got 2 more days to go, the forecast is still good so we'll for sure have more action happening here. Check out www.pwaworldtour.com for all the details, results, pics and videos.
The Lanzarote PWA Freestyle event has started! We've been competing for 2 days already in strong winds and with some nice waves yesterday.
All the girls improved a lot over the winter, landing switch moves, flakas and so on. Sara Quita is on fire and is currently leading. My first day was pretty average but I worked my way up yesterday in the doubel elimination, winning all my heats until the final. Sara beat me there but I'm currently ranked 2nd which I'm very happy with!
The guys' level is just incredible, it has reached another level again... Everyone is going massive!!! Air shove it spocks 15 feet high, puneta burners, fully planing air toads and culos, switch shakas and much much more. It is just amazing to watch. Brawzinio is 1st at the moment, followed by Gollito.

I'm back from Dahab since a couple of days, relaxing at home a bit before leaving again to the Canaries. The PWA World Tour starts soon: The first freestyle event will take place in Lanzarote on the 23rd of June, then we'll be heading to Pozo, on Gran Canaria, for some freestyle and wave action and we'll end up in Fuerteventura for the 3rd freestyle event. I'm really excited about it all, nervous too, let's hope it'll all work out well!
I've made a little video with footage from Dahab. Enjoy!
Here are a few clips from those last couple of days. There will be a longer video soon, but the wind is still blowing so I'm waiting to get more moves on tape the next few days.
Simon's website has been restyled, it looks great, check it out on www.simonhurrey.com. It's winter in Perth now so the surf is great, Si is getting lots of epic sessions.
