Cyclone “Bill” is forecasted for today, with strong gusty winds around 30-35knots and 3 meter swells.
There is huge excitement amongst all riders and everyone involved for this new stage on the KPWT. Some big names on the tour came down to register their names in this historic event up North. Jesse Richman (HAW, CABRINHA), Abel Lago (SPA, RRD) and Wave Master 2008 World Champion Mitu Monteiro (Cabo Verde, F-ONE) all came down to compete in the Waves.
Shippagan is renowned for good wind and accommodate those looking for flat water and some good waves.
Yesterday when we arrived it was a good temperature of 35°C, but today due to the storm pulling in, its dropped off a little.

Tonight there is a party at the “Kredo”. And tomorrow the opening ceremony will be held at the Chiasson Office. There is promise of a huge barbecue, some local beverages and all riders and teams are invited

Thank you to all the sponsors and the local organizing team for their support! KPWT are very excited to host their first event in Canada and look forward to the week ahead.
