Mauritius One Eye Pro Begins Today

If you were to ask a regular person what day today is, that person would answer that its September 23rd, Friday. If you were to ask a windsurfing fan, he would probably say that it’s the day when the biggest event on the PWA World Tour kicks off. But if you were to ask a kitesurfing fan, he would undoubtedly tell you that today is the day when the Mauritius One Eye Pro, the first event on the KiteSurfPro (KSP) Professional Wave Tour begins.
