  • 2017 PWA Wave World Tour Set to Explode into Life




    Pozo

    The wait is finally over after months of waiting… it’s time for the first wave event of the 2017 PWA World Tour and Pozo Izquierdo will once again play host to the most radical sailors in the world over the next 7 days for the Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival (9th-15th July).

    Pozo Izquierdo is internationally famed in the windsurfing world due to its unrelenting wind and steep waves. The combination of these two factors creates the perfect playground for the world’s most extreme sailors to defy gravity and perform the biggest stunts on the planet. The local effects mean that even the slightest breeze can soon be accelerated to nuclear strength, with the wind peaking at around fifty knots. Don’t be surprised to see even the biggest guys reaching for the smallest equipment available, as Pozo looks to separate the men from the boys and the women from the girls.

    Reigning World Champion - Victor Fernandez

    Ones to Watch

    Women’s

    Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) has won the Women’s PWA Wave World Championship for the last 3 seasons, but even so, it will be her sister Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who comes into the opening event of the season as the favourite.

    The legendary Moreno twins have dominated for the last two decades and Daida has only lost once in Pozo in 16 years making her a formidable, almost unbeatable force. In recent years Daida has often won the contest with her spectacular jumping proving to be the difference, while Iballa has tended to gain the upper hand in the wave riding department, so it will be intriguing to see who gains the advantage in the opening bout of the year.

    Daida Moreno

    Reigning World Champion Iballa Moreno: “The last few months I’ve been traveling on tour for SUP competitions but I feel ready to have some fun in Pozo! I have a feeling this year we will have strong winds and great conditions for the first stop of the tour! I’m looking forward to it!”

    fccea40700.jpg

    Iballa Moreno

    The Moreno twins are an intimidating force, but Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) seems to thrive in the competition arena and already showed last year that her wave sailing is progressing at a rapid rate as she caused a major upset by defeating Iballa in the semifinals to earn second place. Whether Offringa can step up to that level again this year remains to be seen, but one things for sure she isn’t scared to put up a fight against the Moreno twins and there could be further upsets on the cards.

    Unfortunately, the opening event of the year has come too soon for last year’s world No.4 - Amanda Beenen (99NoveNove / Point-7) - who is still recovering from the broken ankle and knee ligament damage which she suffered during the off season. Everyone from the PWA wishes Amanda all the best as she continues her rehabilitation.

    Amanda Beenen

    With Beenen out of the contest and the late news that Steffi Wahl (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg) will be absent from proceedings that really opens up the draw for the likes of Lina Erpenstein (Patrik / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who is an exciting emerging talent. The 20-year-old finished 6th overall in 2016 and will be looking to build upon that over the course of the season and with last year’s 4th and 5th place women out of the contest she will now fancy her chances of breaking into the top 4 or 5.

    Lina Erpenstein

    Nayra Alonso (Fanatic / Severne) is also back in the lineup and as a former top 3 sailor, she certainly can’t be ruled out from making her impression felt. Elsewhere, if Justyna Sniady’s (Simmer / Simmer / Mystic) foot injury doesn’t prove too serious then she will also be a danger, while you can also expect to see the likes of Italian’s Caterina Stenta (RRD / RRD Sails / Maui Ultra Fins) and Nicole Bandini (Fanatic / NorthSails) and Holland’s Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / NorthSails / Maui Ultra Fins) making inroads.

    36affb31ee.jpg

    Justyna Sniady

    Men’s

    The main change the men’s competition is that for the Canaries leg of the tour the fleet size will return to 48-man fleets - rather than 32-man like the last few years - which means there will be no trails for this year’s contest.

    Last year Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / NorthSails / Shamal Windsurfing) lit up the world with his dynamic array of jumping and wave riding, which deservedly earned the Spaniard his second world title as he added to his sole world crown from 2010. The 33-year-old kicked off last year’s campaign with an inspired display which saw him cause a major upset as he took down local hero Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) with an extremely polished display. As the reigning event and world champion, Fernandez will enter the first event of the year as favourite and you can expect to see more supremely smooth and perfectly executed moves as he looks to make a positive start to his title defence.

    e2b230fd09.jpg

    Victor Fernandez

    Can Köster Return to his Best?

    All eyes will be on former 3-time world champion - Philip Köster - who will be making his first appearance since rupturing his cruciate knee ligament in September last year. The German has been preparing for the start of the GCWWF, but it remains to be seen whether he will immediately have the confidence to charge as hard as he did prior to injury. If he’s truly back to 100% fitness then he’ll obviously be one of the favourites for the title on his home waters.

    790e468db5.jpg

    Philip Köster

    Other favourites for the opening event of the year would have to include the likes of Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing), who recaptured his best form last year as he returned to the overall podium for the first time since winning his first wave world title in 2013. The Brazilian looks to be on fire in his latest videos from Pozo with perfect doubles, pushloops forwards and aggressive wave riding and if everything clicks into place he’ll be a serious contender.

    b402edc3a6.jpg

    Marcilio Browne

    Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) put together another title challenge last year but just fell short as he finished as the vice-world champion. The Spaniard is never too far away from the action and has finished 3rd and 4th here in 2015 and ’16. He together with former teammate Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) can never be ruled out even though this may not be either of their strongest events - as perfect double forwards are now almost a prerequisite for challenging for the podium in Pozo.

    5da9bad2fb.jpg

    Alex Mussolini

    Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses), who finished 3rd here in 2016 will also be a serious contender again. The Australian is so often one of the standouts with this explosive wave riding hard to rival, while he reportedly has his double forwards on lockdown which could make all the difference at the business end of the contest.

    Jaeger Stone

    Elsewhere, Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / SWOX) and Dany Bruch (Starboard / Flight Sails / AL360 / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses) both have excellent track records in Pozo and should be firmly in the mix, while Ricardo Campello (Point-7) has been pushing himself to the limit in preparation for the start of this year’s contest - culminating in some scary looking wipeouts but also some of the best pushloop forwards ever seen. The 31-year-old is yet to get his hands on the wave world title, but with his undeniable natural talent and radical approach, he is always one of the top contenders. If he can keep mentally focused then there’s no doubting he has all the skills required to win.

    f19135d7b6.jpg

    Robby Swift

    Word on the street is that local boy Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / NorthSails) is ripping harder than ever and it looked as though last year he was already starting to figure out the winning formula, so the 22-year-old could be set for a breakthrough year. Keep your eyes peeled for him. Fellow local boy Moritz Mauch (Severne / Severne) is renowned for his wave riding capabilities, but it remains to be seen whether the obvious weakness in his jumping will let him down - especially with Pozo being a jump dominated spot. If the 21-year-old is able to stick some jumps then he may prove incredibly hard to defeat in the wave riding department with one-handed goiters, air takas and air 360s all seemingly on lockdown.

    Alessio Stillrich

    If Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) is able to sail to his full potential and not go too crazy during his heats then the Frenchman will certainly be challenging for the top 5. The 23-year-old is one of the most fearless sailors in the world - pushing himself into double and triple pushloop attempts - while he has apparently added pushloop forwards to his repertoire as well. If he can land all of his best moves in a heat then he’ll be very difficult to stop.

    e40c0f4d98.jpg

    Antoine Martin

    Also keep your eyes peeled for the likes of Camille Juban (Quatro / Simmer) - 8th overall in 2016 - Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde), who will a little bit more fortune whilst competing could go a long way, Adam Lewis (Fanatic / NorthSails / SWOX), Dieter van der Eyken (Starboard / Severne) and Jules Denel (JP / NeilPryde). Plus local Gran Canaria specialists Josep Pons (Simmer / Simmer), Dario Owed (99NoveNove / Challenger Sails / Maui Ultra Fins), Aleix Sanllehy (Tabou / GA Sails), Omar Sanchez (Carbon Art / KA Sail) and Pablo Ramirez (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg).

    c1212ccea2.jpg

    Camille Juban

    Youth PWA Wave World Champion - Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer) - also deserves a mention. The 18-year-old looks set for a bright future and although he only finished 28th overall last year, that really doesn’t give a fair reflection of his talent and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the young Spaniard pushing for the top 10 and beyond come the end of the week.

  • Das war Tag 1:



    As predicted the 2017 Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival hit the ground running and almost a full day of competition was possible on the opening day. Howling winds greeted the competitors and by the end of the day even the guys were fully overpowered on 3.7s such was the ferocity of the wind. Despite the waves remaining relatively small the best sailors in the world still managed to pull off some remarkable tricks as the level on the world tour continues to go through the roof.

    Women’s

    Only the top 8 girls remain standing after the opening day of the 2017 Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival with the first round being completed in tricky conditions with strong winds and intermittent waves prevailing.

    In the first heat of the day last year’s world No.3 - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) - stole the show as the 26-year-old showed her sailing has gone to another level again. On her way to victory against Marine Hunter (KA Sails), Offringa pulled off a stylish pushloop why’ll fluidly linking together some solid vert turns. On the a-side Birgit Rieger dispatched of Italian Nicole Bandini (Fanatic / NorthSails).

    Sarah-Quita Offringa

    Heat 2 saw reigning world champion Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) in action for the first time and she made a winning start as she ended the hopes of Maria Andrés (Fanatic / NorthSails) with a textbook tabletop forward and a solid first wave doing the majority of the damage. Meanwhile, Caterina Stenta (RRD / RRD Sails / Maui Ultra Fins) produced a buzzer beater as her last minute forward saw her pip fellow Italian Serena Zoia (99NoveNove / LoftSails) to a place in the quarterfinals by just quarter of a point.

    GC17_wv_Iballa_Moreno.jpg

    The penultimate women’s heat of the day saw Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / Mystic) produce a polished display to progress over Greta Benvenuti (Patrik / Point-7 / AL360). There were fears that the Pole may not be able to sail due to injuring her foot last week, but she put those worries to bed by quickly landing a forward loop and clean backie. On the b-side of Heat 3, Lina Erpenstein (Patrik / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) claimed a clinical victory against the youthful talent of Alexa Escherich (JP / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins).

    GC17_wv_Justyna_Back_loop.jpg

    Justyna Sniady

    Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) earned the highest scores of the day as she laid down the gauntlet to show everyone else why she is the favourite for the event title. The multiple time world champions best moment saw her land an outstanding one-handed backloop to earn 8.75 points - ending the heat on a total of 21.25 points. Daida will now face Sarah Hilder (Simmer / Simmer Sails) in the next round after the Brit defeated Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / NorthSails) - with her wave riding proving to be the difference between the two of them.

    In the opening round the majority of the sailors who you would expect to progress did, but there was one major upset as Jules Denel (JP / NeilPryde) suffered a first-round exit at the hands of local José Romero Santana (Mistral / Challenger Sails). The Frenchman didn’t sail a bad heat but ran into an inspired opponent who landed an 8 point double forward as well as linking together two waves in the excellent range.

    GC17_wv_Jose_Romero_Santana.jpg

    Jose Romero Santana

    Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) produced one of the performances of the day in Heat 9 as he took down Moritz Mauch (Severne / Severne) in a close fought heat in which both sailors excelled on the wave. Martin actually earned the first perfect 10 of the competition after he landed a superb Klei and the 23-year-old will now face fellow Frenchman - Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) - in Round 3 after TT progressed at the expense of Pablo Ramirez (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg).

    Meanwhile, Adam Lewis (Fanatic / NorthSails / SWOX) and Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) safely navigated their way in the next round with victories over Kenneth Danielsen (Flikka / Simmer) and Julian Salmonn (Severne / Severne) respectively.

    Omar Sanchez (Carbon Art / KA Sail) produced a fine, late comeback to cause an upset against Klaas Voget (Fanatic / NorthSails) and the local will now face Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX / Mystic) in Heat 18a after the Brit produced an accomplished display to advance ahead of Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer Sails / Maui Ultra Fins), who will now have to wait for the double elimination to try and make a comeback.

    Omar Sanchez

    Before the event, many people believed that Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / NorthSails) would pose a real danger and have a genuine shot at putting together a deep run in the contest and based on his opening performance today there is every chance that he will be battling it out in the latter stages. The 22-year-old looked in impressive form as he pulled off a trademark planing tweaked pushloop as well as landing a planing backloop and a well executed double forward. Stillrich will have to be at the top of his game though as next up for him will be the ominous figure of Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who looked like he’d never been away as he clinically dispatched of Gustav Haggstrom (RRD / RRD Sails) with a perfect double and a combination of tricks and turns on the wave earning him the highest score of the day - 24.12 points - not a bad way to mark your return from injury!

    GC17_wv_Alessio_Stillrich.jpg

    Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde) safely navigated his way into Round 3 with a routine victory over Flo Jung (Starboard / Gun Sails / Maui Ultra Fins) and the German will now face Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses). For a while, the Australian was in a spot of bother against 17-year-old Loick Lesauvage (Goya Windsurfing / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses), who sailed well again, but by the end of the heat Stone reeled in his opponent to deservedly earn his place in the next round.

    Heat 14 witnessed Ricardo Campello (Point-7) and Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) in action for the first time and they both produced standout displays to progress. Browne produced one of the best double forwards of the day to earn perfect 10s, while Campello wasn’t far behind as he landed a 9.62 point double of his own while attempting the only pushloop forward of the contest so far. Victory for Campello and Browne means they will now face each other in a mouthwatering Round 3 duel.

    GC17_wv_Campello_Push_Forward.jpg

    Ricardo Campello

    Aleix Sanllehy (Tabou / GA Sails) looked to be in excellent form as he won both of his opening two heats and he will now face Dany Bruch (Starboard / Flight Sail / AL360 / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses) in Heat 20a - while Dieter van der Eyken produced a superb display to send local specialist Josep Pons (Simmer / Simmer) packing his bags, but he may have to raise his game even higher if he wants to keep his hopes alive as up next he’ll be facing reigning world champion - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / NorthSails / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses) - who produced a solid performance to defeat Eric Sanllehy (Goya Windsurfing) and you can expect to see him improve from here on.

    GC17_wv_Fernandez_takes_off.jpg

    Victor Fernandez

    At the end of day one the top seeds are still standing and they’ll be readying themselves for another of action tomorrow with potentially even stronger winds than today and hopefully bigger waves, but that is not guaranteed as although the wave size is predicted to be bigger the period is short so we will have to wait and see what the conditions bring. The sailors will meet again tomorrow morning at 10am with the action commencing from 10:30am (GMT+1) - if conditions allow.

    Wird hart und Philip ist sicher hungrig.

    Philip muss unbedingt die beiden Kanaren-Worldcups gewinnen, da er Maui nicht gewinnen kann und Sylt und DK sicher auch anstrengend wird.

    Schade das RC er die 35 Punkte aus der Vorrunde weder im Halbfinale noch im kleinen Finale abrufen konnte.


    Geile Show von den Top 8 und das Level ist klar gestiegen.


    Was in den letzten Jahren der doppelforward war scheint jetzt der pushforward zu sein. Victor hätte mit dem Philipp wahrscheinlich geschlagen bei seiner 10 er wavewertung.

    Highlights Day 1 - Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival

    The conditions continued to fire on Day 2 of the Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival with winds in excess of 40 knots greeting the competitors and after a short wait, the waves quickly improved with the tide on the push to allow the single eliminations to be resumed.

    With better stunt ramps on offer than yesterday, the level soon went through the roof as the best sailors in the world pushed themselves to their limits in search of glory. After several monumental battles and some exquisite sailing, it was Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) who crowned the Queen and King of the Single Eliminations.

    The Moreno twins continued their dominance - for the time being at least - as both Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Daida Moreno safely navigated their way into the winners’ final. Daida came into the event as the favourite and she quickly set the tone for the final by landing a massive stalled forward, but Iballa quickly levelled things up with a well-executed pushloop and it wasn’t until towards the end of the heat that Daida fully asserted as she landed a one-handed backloop before linking together her best of the heat to earn 7.5 points and claim a decisive victory.

    GC17_wv_Daida_Moreno.jpg

    In the battle for 3rd and 4th, Lina Erpenstein (Patrik / Severne) lined up against last year’s world No.3 Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins). The young German had already secured her best ever result by breaking into the 4 for the first time, but she wasn’t done there as she caused an upset by claiming a hard fought victory over Offringa. Come the end of the heat there was just over quarter-of-a-point between the two sailors, but crucially Erpenstein made the better of the waves to earn two solid scores of 6.38 and 6.75 points which deservedly saw the 20-year-old claim the final place on the podium.

    GC17_wv_Lena_Erpenstein_back_loop.jpg

    Lina Erpenstein

    Before reaching the opportunity to battle for the podium Erpenstein was involved in the closest heat of the day against Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / Mystic), which saw the Pole land a textbook forward and a perfectly executed backloop, but it was once again Erpenstein’s aggressive wave riding which made the difference as she progressed by just 0.01 of a point. Sniady will now hope for a chance in the double elimination to exact revenge in a tie where margins were almost too close to call.

    Coming into the event there were some questions marks over Philip Köster’s fitness with the former 3-time world champion making his first appearance since rupturing his cruciate knee ligament in September last year. However, after the 23-year-olds performance today it’s safe to say that there was no need to be concerned about whether he could return to his best or not as he produced a sublime performance to defeat Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / NorthSails / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses) in an extremely close, top quality winners’ final.

    Philip Köster

    In fact, Köster’s jumping was so good against Fernandez that he earned a perfect 20 points out of 20 after landing an amazing stalled double forward and a pushloop forward. Fernandez put up a stern fight as he landed an excellent double of his own, but even after earning the only perfect 10 wave ride of the day the reigning world champion couldn’t quite deny Köster the victory.

    2014 PWA Wave World Champion - Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) - got the better of Ricardo Campello (Point-7) in the battle for the last place on the podium with the Frenchman making the better of the waves, but also out jumping his opponent.

    Earlier in the day Campello had been in inspired form and for a long time it looked as though he may be the main man that everyone else had to beat as he firstly defeated Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) in a mouth-watering third round tie, before posting the second highest scoring heat of the day - highest at the time - against Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses) in the quarterfinals - 35.13 points - as the Brazilian/Venezuelan) also recorded perfect jumps scores after earning 10 points for each of his double forward and pushloop forward. Unfortunately for Campello, he couldn’t find the scores required to defeat Fernandez - even after both semifinals were resailed due to a timing error in the first attempt - and he settles for 4th place in the single elimination.

    Yesterday saw the top seeds survived unscathed but that all changed today as the vice-world champion - Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) - fell in the opening heat of the day against an on song Adam Lewis (Fanatic / NorthSails / SWOX) - who produced an excellent jumping and wave riding display and the Brit now occupies joint 5th after the single elimination.

    Omar Sanchez (Carbon Art / KA Sail) then produced the second upset of the day in the very next heat as he turned the tables on Britain’s Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / SWOX), who is usually so dangerous here. Sanchez had looked good yesterday and he carried that form into day two to also sit in joint 5th alongside Lewis, Stone and Dany Bruch (Starboard / Flight Sails / AL360 / Shamal Windsurfing Sunglasses) - who earlier beat Aleix Sanllehy (Tabou / GA Sails) in one of the closest heats of the day.

    The forecast for tomorrow predicts lighter winds and smaller waves so we will have to wait and see whether it is possible to resume the double eliminations. If the pro fleets remain on hold then it is likely that we will see the Youth Divisions take centre stage. The skippers’ meeting has been called for 10am tomorrow morning again with the action commencing from 10:30am (GMT+1) onwards.

  • Ich hab nur kurz reingeschaut, aber die 10 pünkter PF und 2xF von RC waren der hammer!!! Startet heute die Double?


    PS: Totti, evtl. kann ich mein neues Spielzeug morgen wassern :-)

    "Ich komme von einer Farm in der Wüste, wo es weit und breit keine Wellen gibt. Also, wenn ich Wave-Weltmeister werden kann, dann kannst du es auch, wenn du nur willst - Live your dream!!"

  • Wenn man das im TV sieht denkt man naja nette kleine Wellen und etwas Wind. Wenn man da drin ist fragt man sich, wie man noch irgendwelche Sprünge machen kann. Klasse Leistung, besonders von den Frauen. Echt mutig. In Vargas bin ich ein paar mal ordentlich abgehoben. Beim runtergucken wird einem echt anders. Und in dieser Höhe machen die Pros mal eben einen Backloop. Krass.

    das glaube ich gern...

  • Bzgl. des wiederholten Heats:


    Klar kann man sagen, das Ergebnis war im Resail wie beim Abbruch des ersten Heats. Aber was acidman schreibt ist genau der Punkt, Campello hat seine letzte Welle verpasst und die war bei der Punkteverteilung entscheidend.


    Meiner Meinung nach hat man regeltechnisch alles richtig gemacht indem der Heat neu angesetzt wurde. Gleichwohl ist das ganze schon sehr unglücklich für Campello gelaufen, der wie ich finde schon benachteiligt wurde.


    Sei es drum, Fernandez gegen Köster im Finale ist schon mehr als okay :-)
