Lena Erdil (Starboard / Point-7 / AL360 / Chopper Fins) is already in New Caledonia nice and early to prepare for the final event of the season - the Bureau Vallee Dream Cup - which starts exactly a week today (18th November) and runs until the 23rd November.

Erdil has just released her latest vlog and has this to say about it: “Who’s excited for some more of this very soon?ME ME ME! If you're not yet, here's some sick slalom racing action from the PWA World Cup Race in Denmark, Hvide Sande this year to get you psyched up.

Happy to share my latest Vlog with you with a little update at the end and mainly some absolutely sick drone footage!!! So stoked that I managed to get this off Adam Sims from @aalvaamedia aalvaa.com after our last PWA World Cup Event. With his own share of windsurfing injuries, it has been amazing to witness how while in recovery Adam's video production skills have just progressively kept getting better and better. Make sure you check out some of his most recent stuff on his youtube channel: www.youtube.com/adamsims 

I especially like the drone videos he’s been shooting at the PWA slalom events this year sometimes while racing I really had the drone in the corner of my eye, he was pushing pretty hard to fly the drone lower and lower each time. 

How are you liking this perspective? Leave me some comments below ;)”

Bureau Vallee Dream Cup

With the final event of the 2019 PWA World Tour just over a week away we decided to take a quick look at the world title race to show you who needs what to win the Men’s & Women’s PWA Slalom World titles. The season finale will see the elite of the racing world return to New Caledonia for the first time since 2017? For the 2019 Bureau Vallee Dream Cup - which takes place between the 18th-23rd November.

Women’s

Delphine Cousin Questel (Starboard / S2Maui) is in a dominant position heading into the season finale as a top 3 finish would guarantee her a 4th Slalom World Championship. On paper that would look like somewhat of a formality as the last time Cousin Questel finished outside the top 3 was in 2017.

However, with the revelation that the reigning world champion is currently battling to get back to full fitness after injuring her foot whilst wave sailing means that a top 3 finish in New Caledonia is certainly not a foregone conclusion, so that could still open the door for Marion Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone), who is Cousin Questel’s only threat. In order for Mortefon to have a chance of winning the title Cousin Questel would have to finish 4th or worse and Mortefon would have to win the event. Finishing second would see the two women tied on 30,500 points, but Cousin Questel would win the world title on countback.

Men’s

In the men’s, it looks like it will be a straight fight for the title between current world tour leader - Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Severne) and Pierre Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / Chopper Fins), who is aiming to win his first world title. The two title contenders will enter New Caledonia tied on 30,400 points - with Iachino only ahead of countback, therefore whoever beats who will win the world title if they finish 5th or better.

However, if both Iachino and Mortefon were to finish 6th or worse, then that would open the door for reigning world champion - Antoine Albeau (JP / NeilPryde) - to swoop in and snatch a 26th world title, but only if he were to win the event… all three sailors would then finish tied on 40,300 points, but Albeau would win on countback as he would’ve beaten Iachino/Mortefon in 3 out of the 5 events.

Other scenarios where Albeau could win would be:

- If Iachino/Mortefon were to finish 7th then a second place would be good enough for Albeau to win.
- If Iachino/Mortefon were to finish 8th then a third place would be good enough for Albeau to win etc.

Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic

If you haven't had chance to take a look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic highlights then you can view them @ https://youtu.be/mzqR2gV8190.

The iconic Ho'okipa Beach Park provided scintilating action with powerful waves and wind from the first day of the waiting period, which reiterated the importance of returning to Hawaii for the first time in 3 years. 

With no discard to come for the men there was all to play for in the men's title race with 6 sailors all realistcailly in with a chance of winning the title. As it turned out though, the world tour leader at the time - Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) - would secure his 5th world title as the German finished joint 9th at this year's Aloha Classic. Meanwhile, Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) went on to become the first woman in over two decades to steal the Women's PWA Wave World title away from the Moreno twins...
