Yesterday evening was the preview show of the upcoming movie Minds Wide Open. Watch some pictures.
It’s a little bit light on windsurfing action (You’ve got to wait till about the 4:30 mark) but Jason Polakow’s new video from Tahiti is ab-so-lutely RIDICULOUS. We can only wonder what it feels like to take a tumble in the washing machine at Cloudbreak in close proximity to a windsurfing rig. We’re going to with “not good.”
There has been some question regarding whether or not there will be a throw away score for the overall tour points. As stated at the beginning of the tour 4 out 5 events will be scored to find an overall winner.
