Following on from the previous evening's fun-filled parade and opening ceremony, 314 competitors faced challenging conditions for Sunday's practice race. A thunderstorm delayed proceedings before the race committees could leave the harbour and set their courses.

Once it was time to call out the competitors from the beach the 15 knot onshore breeze had picked up and created a lot of waves for them to master before reaching their starting area.

Even on the start line the surfers needed to be wary of the odd "rogue" wave!

Liepaja - "City where the wind is born" - did not disappoint all assembled on the shoreline.
