If Pozo is like it normally is I would expect to only use 4.5-3.7 sails, all on the 75 Wave Cult. There is actually a high chance I only use 4.2 and 4.0!

My highest scoring move will probably be a double. They are not like Philip’s but I have been trying them quite a bit through the winter and have reasonable consistency. I think Pozo is the toughest event of the year as the level here is so crazy. If we get the conditions, I think it will be a good show this year!

KNOWN FOR:

Consistency, Skye will and can do well in any conditions, he is a seasoned pro and it shows in his heats.

EXPECTATIONS:

Skye has made it into the top 10 very regularly for a number of years, he could and should be finishing this well again. With Gran Canaria as his home Skye has no excuses for not starting off the PWA year with a solid result.
