It's been a good 24 years since the Professional Windsurfing Association (PWA) last held a leg of its world cup tour in Japan, but the contest is finally back – with a little help from ANA et al. Yes, it's returning a few years before the Olympics and all that jazz – they're probably testing the waters. The prize up for grabs here is the Professional Slalom World Champion, which makes this the perfect opportunity to see windsurfers zigzag across the waves and admire some seriously intense maneuvering. The full lineup of contestants is yet to be released, but there's no doubt that you'll get to watch the best of the best. Whether you're a die-hard windsurfing fan or a casual beach bum looking for something to ogle, best make way to Tsukuihama Beach in May.
