While the final event - where the 2016 World Champions will be crowned - has been confirmed to be held in Porto Pollo from 16 to 22 October 2016, the upcoming three events in Germany, rolex replica Morocco and China are still to be confirmed. We hope to have final confirmation in the next few weeks.

Porto Pollo is probably one of the windiest spots in Europe, and the event site features prevailing side/side-offshore winds often reaching 30-40 knots in perfectly flat water.

Freestyle and Big Air is scheduled to be held at the Final, with a total of 50.000 EUR prize money up for grabs.

Also, at the World Championships Final, the 2016 World Champions in both disciplines will be crowned. Currently the ranking consists of the successful events in El Gouna and Leucate.

The Notice of Race has been updated to reflect the changes in the calendar. There is also an improved elimination ladder for Freestyle and a few minor changes in the assignments of tricks to the trick categories, so it is definitely worth having a read.

Registration will open soon. Accomodation options will also available in the nearby surfers village.
