 Windsurfing - PWA World Tour 2016 - Wave - Klitmöller DEN - Day 4 Yesterday, the bad luck with wind and waves at the Danish West Coast persisted. There was some hope that competable conditions with 20 knots of wind would fill in, and for a while, the wind did arrive, but unfortunately the swell never built to a suitable level to allow the contest to begin.The forecast for today looks promising with a 16 to 18 kn wind. On Sunday however, the final day of the event, the fresh wind from the shore will not produce any waves again to start the competition. Today or never !
