  • After a late summer break we are back and Sylt, Germany, is preparing to host a blockbuster finale to the 2018 PWA World Tour, which will see 5 new world champions crowned across 4 different disciplines; Men’s and Women’s Wave, Men’s Freestyle, Men’s Slalom and Men’s Foil during the Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam, which runs from 28th September until 7th October.

    Some say that variety is the spice of life and in this sense, Sylt never disappoints as you never quite know what to expect — thanks to the huge variety of conditions that this wonderful island can produce. In strong onshore winds, a colossal shore break develops — ready to crush the hopes of any unsuspecting competitors — along with powerful waves of up to three or four meters in size, which provide amazing wave sailing conditions, whilst producing a real challenge for the slalom and freestyle fleets. On the other hand, Sylt can also produce great racing and freestyle conditions, when offshore winds grace the island with their presence, although it can then be bitterly cold. One thing is for sure, to win here you need to be the complete all rounder who is willing to have their mettle tested to breaking point.

    Women’s


    After the late withdrawal of Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), due to injury, that means that the current top 3 will remain as they are. Therefore, Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) have nothing to lose in Sylt and will finish the season as World Champion and Vice-World Champion respectively, which is Iballa’s 5th world title in a row, while Offringa becomes vice-world champion in the waves for the first time. Daida completes the overall podium.

    Away from the podium Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails) will look to defend her 4th place in the overall rankings, but she’ll face a stern test from Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360), who is realistically the only woman who can overtake her. *Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) can mathematically still overtake but would be required to not only earn her first podium in the waves but also win her first event. The Dutchie will be looking to defend her place in the top 5 though.

    Justyna Sniady


    Sniady is currently ranked 8th due to being absent from Morocco due to visa complications, but is right back in contention after a 5th and a 4th. In order for Sniady to overtake Erpenstein, Sniady requires a top 4 finish or better, while beating Erpenstein in Sylt.


    Men’s


    Title Race Connotations


    On paper it looks like the title race will come down to a fight between current world tour leader - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses) and reigning world champion - Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) as a top two finish or better for either sailor will guarantee one of them the title as it is then mathematically impossible for any of their rivals to catch them. Whoever beats who would then ultimately win the title.


    If you look solely at port tack wave events results, which Sylt is likely to be, although it can sometimes produce starboard tack wave conditions, then the last time both Fernandez and Köster finished outside the top 2 at a port tack wave event is Sylt in 2016, which isn’t too long ago… however, on that occasion, Köster was injured and therefore unable to compete. If you go back to the last time both men were fit and both finished outside the top two in a port tack wave event then you have to go all the way back to Sylt in 2009 - when Köster was just 15-years-old. So, it seems a tall order for both to finish outside the top 2.

    Victor Fernandez & Philip Köster set to go head-to-head


    However, stats like those are made to be broken and given the fact that the level on the World Tour is undoubtedly at the highest it has ever been, then it seems more and more likely that at some stage history will rewrite itself - especially given the fact that the podium in Gran Canaria and Tenerife has featured 6 different sailors (a completely different top 3 in both events in 2018) and there is no discard, meaning pressure will be at an all time high, so anything can happen.


    In With A Chance


    In the event that Fernandez and Köster both finish 3rd or worse then that would present Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards / Point-7), who is still seeking a first wave world title, with an opportunity to steal the top prize. However, in order to do so, Campello would have to conjure up his first victory on the world tour since La Torche in 2014.

    Outside Shot


    If Fernandez and Köster were then both to record top 4 finishes or worse then that would bring two more names into the title race equation - Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) and Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses) - who are currently tied in joint 4th place coming into Sylt. In this scenario, Browne or Stone would be required to win the event in order to claim the wave sailing world’s top prize.

    Jaeger Stone


    Elsewhere, Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX) will look to build upon his best result to date in Tenerife - 3rd - as the Brit looks to end the season with a bang. And given he did well here last year, he could well do just that.


    19cdd9300e.jpg

    Adam Lewis


    Lewis holds a reasonable advantage over his next closest rival - Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) - who is ranked 7th overall. The Spaniard suffered a surprise 13th place finish in Tenerife and will look to bounce back. The Spaniard won the event here in 2016 and could be a major player again.

    Alex Mussolini


    Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX), Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails) and Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer Sails) complete the top 10 at this stage with all 3 tied in joint 8th - the latter two are looking to break into the overall top 10 for the first time come the end of the year.

    Slalom


    Title Race Connotations


    Almost nothing separates current world tour leader - Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Severne / Shamal Sunglasses) and Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) - coming into the final event of the year. In fact, over the opening 5 events, there is almost nothing separating the two world title contenders and they are currently tied on 40,700 points - with Iachino only ahead on countback having recorded a better a result than Albeau in 3 of the 5 events. So. put simply it looks as though whoever beats who here will walk away from 2018 with their second (Iachino) or 25th (Albeau) world title, respectively.


    26aab746a5.jpg

    Will it be all smiles again for Matteo Iachino like in 2016? The Italian won 3 out of the 4 races completed here then


    In With A Chance


    However, as last year in Sylt proved almost anything can happen here with Albeau finishing 10th, while Iachino had to settle for 16th. If things were to unfold like that again then Pierre Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / Chopper Fins) could yet still claim a maiden slalom world crown. In order to do so, Iachino and Albeau would both have to finish 8th or worse - no matter if under 4 races or over 4 races are completed - while Mortefon would have to win the event.


    49999861c7.jpg

    Pierre Mortefon


    In the event that Over 4 Eliminations are completed and:


    - Iachino and Albeau both finish 9th - Mortefon must finish 2nd or better

    - Iachino and Albeau finish 10th - Mortefon must finish 3rd or better

    - Iachino and Albeau finish 11th - Mortefon must finish 4th or better

    - Iachino and Albeau finish 12th - Mortefon must finish 5th or better

    - Any results worse than this and Mortefon would still need to finish at least 5th due to discards


    Under 4 Eliminations completed?


    - However, if less than 4 eliminations are completed and Iachino was to finish 9th and Albeau 8th - then Mortefon would have to win the event compared to finishing 2nd with 4 or more races.

    - If Iachino and Albeau both finish 9th or worse - Mortefon must finish 2nd or better still due to discards


    Elsewhere, you can expect to see Pascal Toselli (JP / Loftsails / Chopper Fins) bounce back from his worst result of the season in Fuerte. The Frenchman is currently ranked 4th overall but has Jordy Vonk (Fanatic / Duotone) and Julien Quentel (Patrik / Avanti) breathing firmly down his neck - with the former enjoying his best season to date and the flying Dutchman will be eager to end the season on a high.


    1459097c0f.jpg

    Pascal Toselli


    Also likely to be involved are Ross Williams (Tabou / GA Sails / Shamal Sunglasses), Cyril Moussilmani (RRD / Severne), Finian Maynard (I-99) and Mateus Isaac (JP / NeilPryde), while a whole host of other sailors are also more than capable of battling it out for the top 10 and beyond in the final event of the year.


    af3f158ee5.jpg

    Ross Williams


    Freestyle


    Men’s


    8-time Freestyle World Champion - Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) - comes into Sylt as the world tour leader having claimed victory in Fuerteventura and a 9th world title would look to be on the cards given the fact that the Venezuelan has won here in 2014, ’16 and ’17, while no result was gained in 2015. Gollito is one of the most ruthless competitors on the tour and you wouldn’t expect to see him give up a golden opportunity for world title No.9.


    a99cd2ae38.jpg

    Gollito Estredo


    However, nothing is set in stone and anything can still happen - especially with no discard - meaning any mistakes or untimely equipment failures are likely to be severely punished.


    Gollito’s closest rival coming into Sylt is fellow teammate - Adrien Bosson (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) - after the Frenchman earned his best result yet in Fuerte - 2nd. The 27-year-old finished 3rd here in 2016 and a similar performance this time around should be enough to earn him a spot on the overall podium for the first time in his career, while if he could find a way to win his first PWA Freestyle event a maiden world title would beckon.


    d7964d47ae.jpg

    Adrien Bosson


    However, both men will face stern competition at the top - firstly from Belgium’s Yentel Caers (JP / Point-7), who has quickly established himself as one of the top freestylers in the world and he’ll be extremely motivated knowing that a first world title could still be on the cards.


    da4433480b.jpg

    Yentel Caers


    Meanwhile, Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne), who has been Gollito’s biggest rival for the last couple of seasons, faces a tall order if he wants to get his hands on the sports top prize. Even if the Bonairean is able to win here his fate will be out of his hands as he comes into Sylt in 4th place. In the event that Vrieswijk was to win the event, he would need Gollito to finish 4th or worse, Bosson to finish 3rd or worse.


    SY17_fs_NB20_0357.jpg

    Amado Vrieswijk


    Elsewhere, expect to see former world champions - Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP / Gun Sails / Shamal Sunglasses) and Dieter van der Eyken in the mix again alongside last year’s world No.3 Jacopo Testa (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360) and New Caledonia’s Antoine Albert (Goya Windsurfing) plus many more.


    2aa01a6948.jpg

    Jacopo Testa


    Foil


    Men’s


    Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (Starboard / Severne / Chopper Fins) leads the foil discipline coming into the final event of the year after recording a 1st, 2nd and a 6th so far. The Argentine holds a two place advantage over Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde), but with a discard to come things could still easily change. A top 2 finish would guarantee Costa Hoevel the title.


    Amado Vrieswijk is one of the sailors who could benefit the most from the discard and that makes him Costa Hoevel’s biggest danger. A second victory of the season for the 22-year-old, who won his first foil event in Costa Brava, would leave Costa Hoevel needing to finish 2nd in order to defend his lead.


    Also in contention should be Sebastian Koerdel (Starboard / GA Sails), Julien Bontemps (JP / NeilPryde), Mateus Isaac, who won the event in South Korea, plus the likes of France’s Alexandre Cousin (Patrik / GA Sails / Chopper Fins) and Antoine Questel (Starboard / S2Maui) and also Denmark’s Sebastian Kornum (JP / NeilPryde). There are many other connotations with the discard to come, but we’ll take a look at those as the foiling unfolds.


    Foiling continues to evolve incredibly quickly and it remains quite hard to predict with results varying significantly from race-to-race sometimes. The opening 3 events have produced 3 different winners… will Sylt produce a 4th? Or will Costa Hoevel, Vrieswijk or Isaac claim a second event title?

    A Windy Event Ahead


    Judging by the latest forecast model from WindGuru the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam looks as it could be as action packed as last year’s edition with winds from 14 to almost 60 knots of wind currently on offer throughout the entirety of the event. With such an amazing forecast on offer - make sure you don’t miss any of the epic action by tuning into www.pwaworldtour.com between 28th September - 7th October.

  • Der gestrige Tag:


    The opening day of the Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam is usually reserved as a registration day, but with a promising looking forecast Sylt sprung into life on Day 1 with the Men’s and Women’s Wave fleets taking centre stage and the afternoon of competition certainly wasn’t one to be missed with two of the biggest upsets of the season on the cards.

    Women’s


    Only the top 4 women remain left standing in Women’s Single Elimination after the first couple of rounds were completed during the afternoon. Current world No.4 - Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails) - safely advanced at the expense of Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) in Heat 13a, but it wasn’t until later on that she really asserted.


    SY18_wv_Lena_smack.jpg

    Lina Erpenstein


    Meanwhile, new vice-world champion - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) - produced the standout performance of the day as the Aruban set the highest scoring heat - 18.88 points - with her wave riding, in particular, impressing as she made the most of the marginal conditions on offer by linking powerful front and backside combinations! Offringa will now face Erpenstein in the semifinals.


    SY18_wv_Sarah_heads_out.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa


    Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who is officially the 2018 Women’s PWA Wave World Champion already, produced an assured display to end the hopes of Marine Hunter (KA Sail), and Iballa will now face Steffi Wahl (Sailloft Hamburg) in the next round after the German defeated Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360).


    SY18_wv_Iballa_Moreno.jpg

    Iballa Moreno


    Men’s


    Title Woes


    At the start of the day, 5 sailors were in contention for the title - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses), Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards / Point-7), Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) and Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses), and while that is still true, two of those aforementioned sailors have seen their title aspirations diminish, while the odds of Victor Fernandez winning have shortened significantly after Köster and Browne both suffered shock first round exits to two sailors that came through the Qualification Round.


    Giant Slayers


    Firstly, Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails) produced one of the performances of the day to take down Marcilio Browne in Heat 2b as he landed a radical air spock, but it was his wave riding that proved decisive as the Frenchman showed better timing and a more vertical approach to cause the first major upset of the day.


    SY18_wv_Anthony_Ruenes_on_fire.jpg

    Antony Ruenes


    Then, just a couple of heats later reigning world champion - Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) - suffered the same fate at the hands of Julien Quentel (Patrik / Avanti), to stun the home crowd with Quentel also gaining the upper hand with his impressive wave riding.


    SY18_wv_Julien_Quentel.jpg

    Julien Quentel


    Köster and Browne are still in contention for the title, but things just became a whole lot harder as they would now have to mount a mammoth comeback through the double elimination. So while they are down, they are not yet out.


    Having seen a couple of his main rivals falter Victor Fernandez made no such error as the Spaniard, who is seeking a 3rd wave world title, not only progressed through his first round heat against Ross Williams (Tabou / GA Sails / Shamal Sunglasses), but also did so with a statement of intent as he posted the highest scoring heat of the day - 16.75 points. Fernandez also has fate completely in his own hands and the draw has worked out favourably for the 34-year-old as a potential route to the final does not involve facing any of his title rivals, which is huge given that a top 2 finish guarantees him the title - *assuming that Köster does not finish ahead of him.


    SY18_wv_Victor_Bottom_turn.jpg

    Victor Fernandez


    Instead, Fernandez’s rivals will effectively have to take each other down as they try to forge their way into the final, while having to rely on one of their fellow pros doing them a favour. Jaeger Stone and Ricardo Campello are Fernandez's title rivals left in the Single Elimination and they would be set for a semifinal showdown if they were both to advance through their second round and quarterfinal ties. Stone overcame a tricky first round draw in starboard tack conditions against Morgan Noireaux (JP / S2Maui), while Campello also comfortably advanced as he dispatched of Pablo Ramirez (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg).


    SY18_wv_Ricardo_Campello.jpg

    Ricardo Campello


    Fernandez will still face a tough test in round two though as he will face Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails), who was one of the other sailors to really catch the eye as he claimed an impressive victory over Graham Ezzy (Tabou / Ezzy). TT endured a disappointing competition in the Canaries, but he looked a rejuvenated character today as he revelled in the starboard tack conditions, while looking much more like the Traversa who won the wave world title in 2014. Ezzy, meanwhile, was probably left cursing his luck to be drawn against Traversa as he would have progressed through many of the other first round ties.


    SY18_wv_Thomas_Traversa.jpg

    Thomas Traversa


    Elsewhere, Denmark’s Kenneth Danielsen (Flikka / Simmer Sails), Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone), Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde), Josep Pons (Simmer / Simmer Sails), Moritz Mauch (Severne / Severne Sails), Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX), Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX), Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails), Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer Sails) and Camille Juban (Quatro / Simmer Sails) are all safely into the round of 16.

  • Das war der Samstag:


    The action packed start to the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam continued on Day 2 with a full day of racing, which saw two races a piece completed in both the Foil and Slalom in challenging conditions with a mixture of chop and swell testing the world’s best racers. During the slalom most sailors were on 7.8-8.6m and their medium boards to cope with the tricky water conditions.


    SY18_sl_First_mark_action.jpg

    Slalom


    Foil


    Current world tour leader - Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (Starboard / Severne / Chopper Fins) - finds himself in 14th place after the first day, but fortunately for the Argentine fellow world title hopeful Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) was also off the pace in the first race - 13th - and thus Costa Hoevel remains at the top of the overall rankings. With less than 4 races completed Vrieswijk is the only other sailor who could deny Costa Hoevel, but in order to do so the Bonairean would have to win the event, which is now almost mathematically impossible after Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Severne / Shamal Sunglasses) won both of the foil eliminations completed today - which was the first time the Italian has won a foil race and he sits pretty at the top of the overnight rankings.


    SY18_fl_Matteo.jpg

    Matteo Iachino on the foil


    However, while Costa Hoevel, may well be safe in the event that only one more race were to be completed, his situation becomes much more precarious in the event that at least 4 races are finished - particularly with Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) currently in a solid second position. If Albeau was to finish 2nd after 4 or more races the Frenchman would receive 10,200 points, which would mean Costa Hoevel would need to climb to at least 4th place to become the first man to win the Foil World title. Meanwhile, Vrieswijk would remain firmly in the hunt. The 22-year-old is ranked 6th after the opening races and if Albeau were to remain second and Costa Hoevel outside the top 4 then a top 3 finish would be good enough to see him claim the first official Foil World title, so there is still all to play for.


    SY18_fl_Amado_action.jpg

    Amado Vrieswijk


    Slalom


    Before the start of the Slalom, Matteo Iachino’s day couldn’t have been going much better after recording his first bullets on the Foil World Tour in impressive fashion. However, Iachino’s priority is undoubtedly aimed at earning his second Slalom World title, but the 28-year-old has lost the initiative in that pursuit, for now at least, after a semifinal exit in Elimination 1 - when he was pipped to the last place in the Winners’ Final by Basile Jacquin (RRD / Point-7) when rounding the final mark.


    Victory in the next race for Iachino was imperative to give himself any kind of chance to rekindle his title hopes and that’s exactly what the Italian managed to do and he clearly knew the importance of that victory as he celebrated crossing the line. Overall, Iachino was certainly the standout sailor of the day with 3 victories across two disciplines in the 4 races completed, but he now has to pray for more slalom conditions.


    SY18_sl_Iachino_takes_a_bullet.jpg

    Matteo Iachino clinches what could prove to be a crucial bullet


    As things stand Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) has seized control of the title race after an assured display, which saw the 24-time world champion secure two solid 3rd places, which leaves him in a clearcut 2nd place in the current event rankings. Albeau currently holds a commanding 5.7 point advantage over Iachino and in order to be denied Iachino must find a way to overtake him. *Assuming Albeau doesn’t drop out of the top 8.


    SY18_sl_Antoine_Albeau.jpg

    Antoine Albeau


    Pierre Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / Chopper Fins) heads the current event rankings at the end of the first day of Slalom after doing everything in his power to force his way deeper into the title race, but unfortunately for him he would need Albeau to drop to at least 8th and Iachino at least 9th with under 4 races completed. The Frenchman can still be happy knowing that he can’t have done anything more today and walks away with a 1st and a 4th for his efforts. Mortefon’s title hopes are out of his own hands and while his chances are slim he is not totally out of the picture yet.


    SY18_sl_PIerre_takes_the_first_bullet.jpg

    Pierre Mortefon celebrates


    Less than 2 points separate 3rd-6th place at the moment, so the battle for the final podium of the season is also excitingly poised. France’s Antoine Questel (Starboard / S2Maui) currently leads that race in 3rd place, but he has fellow countryman Cyril Moussilmani (RRD / Severne), Britain’s Ross Williams (Tabou / GA Sails / Shamal Sunglasses) and Matteo Iachino all within striking distance, while Julien Quentel (Patrik / Avanti) is then only 3 points further back in 7th.


    SY18_sl_Questel_into_third.jpg

    Antoine Questel


    Basile Jacquin may have potentially put a spanner in the works of Iachino’s title dreams, but the 20-year-old raced brilliantly today in the tricky conditions to qualify for both Winners’ Finals and the young Frenchman is currently ranked 8th as he searches for his first top 10 finish at an event. Meanwhile, Fellow Frenchman Nicolas Warembourg also enjoyed a fine day and Is just a place further back in 9th meaning that 7 out of the current top 10 are French as they continue to dominate the Slalom scene.

    Andrea Ferin (RRD / Challenger Sails / AL360) described today as one of the best days of racing that he’s ever had and his performance today earns him the final place in the current top 10. The Italian did brilliantly on a couple of occasions to fight his way back into the qualifying places and walks away from today with two top 12 results as he too chases a first top 10 finish.

    Elsewhere, Pascal Toselli (JP / Loftsails / Chopper Fins), Jordy Vonk (Fanatic / Duotone) and Julien Quentel are all fighting for a place in the end of year top 4 and after today’s results - Toselli (15th), Vonk (11th) and Quentel (7th), the latter would be on course to leapfrog both Toselli and Vonk into 4th place. As things stand Vonk and Quentel would be tied on 48,200 points, but Quentel would take 4th on the tiebreak.

    Project Blue Life - Dedicated to Effective Climate Protection


    Actually, it is no news anymore that the time has come: CO2 reduction and compensation is the most important subject for everyone.


    A very interesting fact is that Mangroves are the most valuable plants on earth.


    Mangroves are the most sustainable, simple and efficient tool for CO2 compensation for every private person and for businesses of all kinds.


    We are the ones together, honoured to spread this information to the world, inviting thousands and millions of people to participate and share.


    Thanks to Svein Rasmussen and Dr. Arne Fjortoft as our foundation partners of Blue Life, we have developed a system that turns events of all kind into tools for climate protection. This actively involves the competitors as well as spectators and digital users and viewers.


    The world premiere of this system will start this Friday in Sylt at the Mercedes-Benz PWA Windsurf World Cup.

  • Der gestrige Sonntag:


    After a brief period of wind during the morning the breeze quickly dropped, so while efforts were made to start Elimination 3 of the Slalom, those efforts proved to be in vain with the wind soon dropping below 7 knots, while the waves made it difficult to set the course meaning no official competition was completed on Day 3 of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam.

    So, with things remaining relatively calm through the afternoon we decided to catch up with Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who is officially the 2018 Women’s PWA Wave World Champion with an event to spare after recording two victories and a 3rd place from the opening 3 events - you can read our interview with the newly crowned world champion below:


    SY18_ls_Iballa_and_her_quiver.jpg

    All smiles for Iballa Moreno - the 2018 Women's PWA Wave World Champion


    Hey Iballa, firstly congratulations! How does it feel to win a 5th world title in a row?


    “(Gulp) well it’s obviously been a good year… we started with a new event in Morocco, which was exciting because it was a starboard tack event where we had good results and then also in Gran Canaria and Tenerife we got good results, so in the end I’m happy to come to Sylt having won the title as my sister - Daida - was the only girl who could overtake me, but unfortunately she has an injury which means she couldn’t compete here. But in terms of the title race she would’ve still had a lot of work to do as she would have had to win the event and I would’ve had to finish worse than 3rd, but in Sylt anything can happen - particularly with the top 6 girls all really pushing hard.


    So yeah, I’m happy to be taking this event as a discard and winning the title for the 5th year in a row. I still don’t believe it because 1999 was my first title and now this is my 10th world title now and 28th for us [Moreno twins]. It’s a pity for my sister because I like to be on the podium with her, but a 3rd is still a top result and Sarah-Quita [Offringa] has been very consistent for the whole season. Sometimes competition is like this… you know for me Daida is the best sailor especially, but overall I’m happy to have a complete tour with a lot of different conditions and to be able to show that I can be the best in a variety of conditions. So yeah, stoked especially as I won the SUP event in New York and now winning the title in the same week is unbelievable!”


    How long have you been competing on the Stand Up Tour? And how does winning an event on the SUP tour compare to winning a windsurfing event?


    On the Stand Up the level is incredibly high…. At the moment I would say in windsurfing the top 5 or 6 girls are capable of causing an upset, but on the SUP it would be anyone in the top 10.


    New York was a difficult place to compete and I was happy it was on my backhand, even though it’s not my strongest side particularly in small waves, but in the final I was lucky and had some good waves and knew how to compete. And I was relaxed, that was my first final for many years, so it’s been a good week and now I will just do my best to enjoy what ever the conditions throw at us here in Germany.


    Now that you have the title wrapped up… do you think you are as motivated about winning as if the title was still up for grabs between you and Daida?


    Yeah for sure. You know I’d love to go home having won here or making the final, but you know here is a really difficult spot to sail and at the moment I’m still in the clouds from all this travelling and competition - switching between windsurfing and standup - but I feel very relaxed and I enjoyed sailing my heat on Friday. I felt like I sailed well and was motivated in the water, so lets just seen what happens when I sail my next heat. If I make it to the final I’ll be super stoked and if not I’ll still be stoked because it’s been an incredible week and it would be another good result. Whatever happens I’ll be happy.


    Where has been your favourite stop this year and how do you think each event went so far?


    Gran Canaria is always super stressful because what people don’t see is all the work we do behind the scenes and before the event to get everything ready, but to organise an event and compete is extremely difficult.


    This year I actually spent more time there than in recent years because I was really training my jumps, which I think I did with one-hand backloops and finally throwing myself into some push tabletops. I was motivated to train jumping because the only way you have any chance of beating Daida there is if you can challenge her in the jumps.


    And then in the end against Sarah-Quita it turned out I only needed a 3 point wave against her to win, but I couldn’t find the score I needed, but take nothing away from Sarah-Quita as she was also there for a month or more training and sailing good too. 3rd was still a good result but dropping from 2nd to 3rd was a little bit painful.


    Morocco was a pretty fun event. The days before the finals I had a lot of fun surfing and sailing there and overall it was a lot of fun and great to get the win there.


    Tenerife is almost like home and it consists of a lot of wave riding, which is what I like, so I like all 3 events, but if I have to pick one then Morocco as it was a new place and it was starboard tack.


    7a26fe9434.jpg

    Iballa in Morocco earlier this year


    Do you think with Sarah-Quita pushing so hard that that has possibly made you and Daida raise your level even higher again?


    It’s not even only Sarah, all the girls are improving each year and me and Daida are never sitting back and relaxing. You know when I’m competing whether it be against Sarah or Daida or anyone else I’m not thinking about beating her, I’m thinking about improving myself and doing my thing and the same goes for training - I’m not sailing thinking I’m the best - and I never think that - I set out trying to improve because that’s what I like and that’s what keeps me motivated. Learning new things keeps the fire alive and burning and I think the same goes for Sarah. She’s been very motivated and focused more on the waves and you can see the improvement in her level - especially in the jumping. It’s only a matter of time before she starts to integrate more of her freestyle moves into the waves and we will see the level continuing to increase. I’ll continue to do my best to improve myself, but it’s also great to see all the other girls improving as well.


    Do you think that Stand Up Paddling has also helped you with your wave sailing?


    Yeah for sure. I mean I come from a surfing background originally and that’s something that I’m never going to forget. I started windsurfing when I was 17 - by 17 Sarah-Quita was already a multiple time world champion - so I know my background is surfing and it’s always what I loved. I discovered Stand Up Paddle back in 2009 and I can remember not being able to sleep at night because I was so excited. It was like that same feeling as when I started surfing or windsurfing. So I think SUP has definitely improved my windsurfing skills, but I think also vice-versa too.


    At the moment I have to say that I’ve been Stand Up Paddling more than anything. It’s really difficult to have wind and waves all the time, so when there’s not wind but waves I’ll be surfing and looking to gain as much time in the water as possible. It’s not only good physically but also for my head and for my happiness.


    When this event is over… will you be allowing yourself to celebrate? And how will you be celebrating?


    Actually, I celebrated with my friends from Australia in New York because I’ve been competing in SUP since 2012 and last week was the first time I have won a world tour event in that. Like they say it’s been a long time over due, but that’s just the way it can go with competitions, but I’ve just been trying to be more relaxed because I know in competitions I never feel like I surf like I normally do in free surfing, so in New York I was finally relaxed and didn’t think about anything. So, I will celebrate again, but probably when I’m back home.


    Do you think you get as stressed whether its a windsurfing event or a SUP event?


    It varies - it depends on the day. Normally I’m quite excited when I go to a standup event because I’ve been travelling to a lot of new places - like New York was new for me also Nicaragua, Mexico and I’m going to Chine this November for another standup event and then an event back home in Gran Canaria before travelling to Sunset, Oahu, so there’s a lot of crazy spots that I’m excited to visit. So, I still get nervous, but since turning 40 I think I’m more relaxed now because I’m really just enjoying doing what I love which is windsurfing and stand up. Lets see if I can do it much longer.


    If you could give your younger self a piece of advice knowing what you know now what would it be?


    Ooof tough one. None… I’ve been a pretty good girl hahaha. But I probably just wish I’d trained more seriously at the beginning (physically training). That’s what I’ve changed in the last few years - after starting standup and also after some knee injuries as it really helps a lot. Now I train most days because I have this event and so many others coming up, but also because of having so many previous knee problems I want to keep my knees strong and fit, but I think it’s also good for my head. So, yeah more physical training as it helps prevent injuries and also helps to improve your level. Both windsurfing and surfing have both evolved really fast in becoming more professional, so I’m happy to be part of that progression - two years ago I became a surf trainer so now I know exactly what you need to prepare for the season. That’s the only things - I don’t regret anything I’ve done.


    The only other piece of advice I would give is to keep enjoying myself. The ocean is my office and this is the life that I chose and Im so happy to have the ocean as my office.


    Thanks Iballa - congratulations on winning your 10th world title and good luck for the rest of the event here and the rest of your SUP events.


    The forecast for tomorrow predicts stronger north-westerly winds - 21-23 knots during the morning - increasing to 30 knots by the evening so there should be more action to come on Day 4. Skippers’ meeting times for respective disciplines below: (All Times (GMT+2)


    - Freestyle skippers' meeting - 9:30am - first possible start 10am

    - Wave skippers' meeting - 10:30am - first possible start 11am

  • Das war Tag 4:



    Competing wasn’t always easy on Day 4 of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam as frequent rain squalls played havoc with the wind during the morning and early afternoon, despite this the opening 3 rounds of the Men’s Freestyle Single Elimination were still completed and 3 out of the current top 4 Freestylers are safely into the top 8.


    SY18_fs_Gollito_goes_big.jpg

    Current Freestyle World Tour leader - Gollito Estredo


    Meanwhile, during the afternoon the wind eventually settled down, while Sylt’s infamous dredging shore break came to life to provide a gnarly conclusion to the day.


    At the close of play only the top 4 men remain standing in the Men’s Wave Single Elimination and as things stand Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards / Point-7) leads the race for the 2018 Men’s PWA Wave World Championship after current world tour leader - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses) - was eliminated in the quarterfinals.

    Men's Single Elimination


    Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) and Victor Fernandez qualified through the round of 16 with the two highest scores of the day to set up a mouthwatering tie against each other in the quarterfinals. Traversa set the highest points tally of the contest so far against Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer Sails) in Heat 12a - 21.84 points - as TT, who looked one of the most dangerous sailors on the opening day, continued to excel in the challenging conditions. Meanwhile, Fernandez posted a score of 17.17 points against Camille Juban (Quatro / Simmer Sails) to also progress.


    SY18_wv_Traversa_one_handed.jpg

    Thomas Traversa


    In the top half of the draw both Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses) and Ricardo Campello successfully advanced into the semifinals to keep their title hopes alive, but with fate out of their own hands they would need a favour from Traversa and that’s exactly how things unravelled with TT defeating Fernandez in Heat 14b by 14.63 points to 11.99 points as the 32-year-old continued to take maximum risk by tagging heavy, and sometimes seemingly unmakeable sections, and those risks were deservedly rewarded with victory.


    SY18_wv_Traversa_on_fire.jpg

    The golden boy - Thomas Traversa - in the golden light


    With Fernandez eliminated in joint 5th place in the Single Elimination, as previously stated, that opened up the title race for Stone and Campello and they would battle it out in a massive semifinal with the winner guaranteed to be leading the title race at this stage.



    SY18_wv_Jaeger_slash.jpg

    Jaeger Stone


    In the quarterfinals, Campello rode his luck slightly - needing a last minute wave to advance past Josep Pons (Simmer / Simmer Sails), but against Stone, the Venezuelan/Brazilian markedly raised his game as he hunts for a maiden wave world crown. In the air, the pair couldn’t be separated, but Campello proved more dangerous on the wave this time around and progresses into the final and with it takes the No.1 spot in the overall rankings.


    SY18_wv_Ricardo_vertical.jpg

    Ricardo Campello late hit


    Meanwhile, Traversa, who is already guaranteed his best result since Gran Canaria last year, took on good friend Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails), who won the event here in 2016, in the second semifinal. Much like Campello versus Stone, there wasn’t much between them in the air, but Traversa was able to post a wave that almost went into the excellent range - 7.38 points - and that proved decisive with TT advancing into the final. Mussolini will now face Stone in the battle for 3rd and 4th.


    SY18_wv_Mussolini_back_loop.jpg

    Alex Mussolini


    Traversa may feel slightly unlucky as an attempt to run the Winners’ Final was made, but the final had to be cancelled due to it being almost pitch black halfway through the final. But even by then the 2014 Wave World Champion had already accrued a points haul of 17.88 points. However, TT should still be delighted with his performance thus far and was deservedly awarded the Mercedes-Benz Sailor of the Day after not just making the final, but also posting the highest single wave score - 9.27 points - for a brilliant frontside 360.


    SY18_wv_Traversa_on_form.jpg

    Thomas Traversa


    While Ricardo Campello may lead the race for the world title, Victor Fernandez still has fate in his own hands, but things are now a little bit harder than they were as the Spaniard requires a top 2 finish to be guaranteed the title - assuming that he finishes ahead of Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who has a mountain to climb after being eliminated in the opening round.


    SY18_wv_Victor_goes_big.jpg

    Victor Fernandez


    Elsewhere, Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails), who came through the Qualification Round moved into the top 5 after defeating Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) in Heat 9b after landing what is becoming his signature move - an air spock - while posting a 6.45 point final wave score which included a taka to progress. Josep Pons, Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX) and Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) are the other sailors currently tied in joint 5th.


    SY18_wv_Anthony_Ruenes.jpg

    An attempt was made to run the Women’s Wave semifinal featuring - Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails), Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins), Steffi Wahl (Salloft Hamburg) and newly crowned world champion Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), but it had to be abandoned with the wind once again dropping.


    SY18_wv_Sarah_Quita_Offringa.jpg

    Freestyle


    Single Elimination


    Gollito Estredo, who is aiming to win a 9th PWA Freestyle World Title laid down the gauntlet to his rivals today as he recorded the two highest heat scores of the day. Against Taty Frans (Starboard / GA Sails) the Venezuelan posted a score of 121.6 points before bettering that score against Giovanni Passani (Tabou / GA Sails / AL360) by accumulating 127.2 points as he exuded his usual flair and style. Gollito will now face Balz Müller (MB-Board / Severne) in the quarterfinals after the Swiss defeated Francesco Cappuzzo (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360) in Heat 20a.


    SY18_fs_Gollito_Estredo.jpg

    Gollito Estredo


    Gollito looks to be in ominous form, but both Adrien Bosson (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) and Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne), who are ranked 2nd and 4th coming into Sylt remain the 29-year-olds most obvious threats with both men safely navigating their way into the top 8.


    SY18_fs_Bosson_style.jpg

    Adrien Bosson


    However, with current world No.3 - Yentel Caers (JP / Point-7) - suffering the narrowest of defeats - 0.02 of a point - at the hands of Britain’s Jamie Howard (JP / Severne) it would seem that the Belgian is now more than likely out of the running for this year’s title, meaning Gollito has two main threats… Bosson and Vrieswijk. However, with Bosson and Vrieswijk set to go head-to-head in the next round - the quarterfinals - things are potentially playing perfectly into Gollito’s hands.


    SY18_fs_Jamie_Howard.jpg

    Jamie Howard claims a big victory


    Bosson remains Gollito’s biggest threat after finishing 2nd in Fuerteventura, but if Vrieswijk was to win their quarterfinal duel, which he could well do after posting the 3rd highest heat score of the day - 120.8 points - then even if the Bonairean was to win the event then a 3rd place finish or better would guarantee Gollito a 9th world title. Given that Gollito hasn’t finished outside the top 3 of a Freestyle event since Fuerteventura in 2015 - when he was forced to withdraw from the double elimination due to illness - that looks very unlikely, but you never know.


    SY18_fs_Amado_back_loop.jpg

    Amado Vrieswijk


    Elsewhere, Loick Spicher (RRD / RRD Sails), Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP / Gun Sails), Sam Esteve (JP / NeilPryde) and Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails) are all also safely into the quarterfinals.


    Tuesday looks set to be windier than today, but the morning could prove troublesome again with heavy rainfall expected, however, that is expected to dissipate as the day progresses and with winds up to almost 40 knots, tomorrow could see a day of spectacular action. Skippers’ Meeting Times (All Times (GMT+2) for Day 5 can be found below:

  • Wie stark fährt A. Bosson eigentlich aktuell?? Jeder Heat ein absolutes Feuerwerk! Verdient gegen Gollito die Single gewonnen.

    "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!!"

  • ich hätte wieder mal einen vorschlag

    können wir zu PWA events 2 threads machen? einen in den totti die infos reinkopiert und einen in dem man zum event diskutiert

    weil die infos die mich interessieren les ich eh bei der PWA aber diese ewig langen listen / berichte überlagern mmn eine eventuelle diskussion total


    somit würde ich einen entsprechenden "diskussionsthread interessant finden, da würd ich dann auch "dranbleiben" ;)

    Manche Menschen haben einen Stock im Arsch, und andere einen ganzen Grenzpfosten! c miss_paran0ia

  • Das war Tag 5. Mal sehen, ob Philip noch die Kurve kriegt...


    The non-stop action continued on Day 5 of the Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam as a further 11 hours of competition was completed the most hardcore conditions of the event yet as the North Sea brewed up a storm that claimed a few victims along the way. By the end of the day a further 3 results have been gained in the Men’s and Women’s Wave and Men’s Freestyle.


    SY18_wv_Rough_seas.jpg

    Wild Conditions on Day 5


    Wave


    Women’s - Single Elimination


    The Women’s semifinal saw an incredibly high level as Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails), Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins), Steffi Wahl (Sailloft Hamburg and Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) went all out in the battle for a place in the Winners’ Final.


    SY18_wv_Iballa_smack.jpg

    Iballa Moreno


    In the a-panel of Heat 15 Offringa faced Erpenstein and it was the German who made a flying start as she immediately launched into a big backloop to earn 5.38 points, but Offringa soon pegged back Erpenstein by linking together a 7.07 point wave before then going into the excellent range as she landed a frontside air - 8.55 points to advance into the final. Meanwhile, Iballa Moreno, successfully booked her place in the Winners’ Final by defeating Steffi Wahl. Iballa made a strong start as she landed a huge forward loop and then she too landed a frontside aerial to advance.


    SY18_wv_Sarah_air.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa


    Unfortunately for the Winners’ Final the wind swung more onshore, so Heat 17 was a slight anti-climax after such a high level in the semifinals. For a long time it looked as though Iballa was on course for victory after kicking things off with a massive backloop - 5.88 points - while Offringa crashes her tweaked pushloop attempt, but Iballa find the wave scores she needed to kill Offringa off and that proved costly in the end with Offringa staging a late comeback as she posted her best two wave scores with her last two efforts - 5.12 points and 4.12 points - to snatch the victory from Iballa’s grasp.


    SY18_ls_Sarah_claims_the_victory.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa celebrates


    In the battle for 3rd and 4th there was almost nothing to separate Lina Erpenstein and Steffi Wahl with both girls going blow for blow throughout Heat 16. In the end there was less than half a point separating them, but the verdict went the way of Erpenstein, who takes home 3rd place in the single elimination.


    SY18_wv_Lena_goes_large.jpg

    Lina Erpenstein


    The opening round of the Women’s Double Elimination was also completed and Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins), Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360) and Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) are all safely through.

    Men’s - Single Elimination


    In the rerun of the Men’s Winners’ Final Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) started in the same fashion as yesterday as he opened proceedings with a planing backloop. However, Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards / Point-7) hit back almost immediately by landing the first double forward of the contest and then quickly added a solid 6 point wave to his scoresheet to take the initiative in the final. For a while Traversa’s timing seemed slightly off, but the Frenchman hurled himself back Into contention as he landed a frontside 360 before backing it up to earn the highest single wave score of the final - just under 8.5 points. Unfortunately for Traversa, Campello then followed suit on the wave behind to reestablish his advantage which proved pivotal. Traversa did have one more chance but he couldn’t quite land his massive frontside 360 attempt and with it the victory was deservedly Campello’s.

    Meanwhile, Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) sailed through the pain barrier, after injuring his ankle yesterday, to claim 3rd place by defeating Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses) in a very close duel. In fact Mussolini needed a last minute wave to turn the result on it’s head.

    Double Elimination


    Title Race


    At the start of the event there were 5 title contenders, but at the close of play today that number has dropped to 4 after Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails) completed an unlikely double in today’s Double Elimination as he once again proved to be Marcilio Browne’s (Goya Windsurfing) nemesis.


    That leaves Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses), Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses) all still in the hunt as they look to deny event and world tour leader Ricardo Campello a maiden wave world title.


    Köster began his comeback through the Double Elimination today and is still alive and kicking in the race for the title after winning 4 heats on the spin against - Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails), Moritz Mauch (Severne / Severne Sails), Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX) and Josep Pons (Simmer / Simmer Sails) and will now face Antony Ruenes next. Köster had to produce a couple of late escapes in a couple of heats, but also pulled of a few moments of magic and he’ll be raring to go early tomorrow morning. Köster requires a top 2 finish to win the title.


    SY18_wv_Philip_Koester.jpg

    Philip Köster


    The same is also true for Fernandez, who would have been wrong to think that teammate and good friend - Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Duotone) - was going to go easy on him in Heat 28a as the German went all out for the victory. In the end Fernandez’s clinical double forward was the difference and he will now face Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde).


    SY18_wv_Victor_Fernandez.jpg

    Victor Fernandez


    Jamaer continues to take maximum risk with critically late hits and those risks were rewarded today. The German needed the result to be overturned against Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX) in Heat 28b after a one-foot backloop was judged as a regular backloop. At the end of the heat there was just 0.06 of a point between them, so upon being shown video evidence the result was changed.


    SY18_wv_Leon_goes_large.jpg

    Leon Jamaer


    Having finished 4th in the Single Elimination - Jaeger Stone - is the last title contender, but in order to win his first world title nothing but a victory will suffice for the Australian. He awaits his opponent in Heat 32.

    Freestyle


    Single Elimination


    Adrien Bosson (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) was the standout sailor today as the Frenchman levelled up the Freestyle World title race by claiming his first victory in a Single Elimination with a hugely impressive and explosive display of sailing.


    SY18_fs_Bosson_Style.jpg

    Adrien Bosson


    The 27-year-old posted a heat score of 155.4 points in 3 consecutive heats as he showed not just an explosive array of moves, but also the level of consistency that is required to go all the way. Bosson’s victory was made all the more impressive as he defeated two-time vice-world champion - Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne), who was below par but can have absolutely no complaints, 2011 PWA Freestyle World Champion and Freestyle juggernaut - Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP / Gun Sails) - and then last but not least 8-time PWA Freestyle World Champion - Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) - who classed today some of the hardest conditions he has ever sailed in. The Venezuelan posted the highest scoring heat of the day - 163.3 points - against Sam Esteve (JP / NeilPryde) in the semifinals, but couldn’t quite replicate that score in the final.


    SY18_ls_Victory_for_Bosson.jpg

    Adrien Bosson celebrates


    Meanwhile, Van Broeckhoven won the battle for 3rd and 4th between himself and Esteve, which guarantees him his best result since 2014 - when he won the event in Leucate, France.


    SY18_fs_Van_Broekhoven_action.jpg

    Steven Van Broeckhoven


    Title Race


    It is now looks like a straight fight for the title between teammates Adrien Bosson and Gollito Estredo with Amado Vrieswijk now out of the running for this year’s title. Yentel Caers (JP / Point-7) can still mathematically win the title, but faces an extremely tall order to do that as he would need to win the entire event, which would require him to win 11 consecutive heats from now. In this scenario, Gollito, Bosson and Caers would all finish tied on 19,800 points, but Caers would win the tie break unless the decision was made to sail several sail offs. However, that is a long way away right now and we will visit that if and when it becomes more of a possibility.


    The opening two rounds of the Men’s Double Elimination were also completed.


    With the wind and waves expected to be at their strongest and biggest tomorrow morning an early call has been made for the Wave fleet - with the hope of trying to complete the Double Eliminations - if conditions are suitable. Skippers’ meeting times for all disciplines can be found below.


    Skippers’ Meeting Times Day 6 (All Times GMT+2)

  • Victor Fernandez ist neuer Wave Weltmeister, Philip auf 3. Position im Jahresranking.


    Das war Tag 6:


    During the night, winds of up to 60 knots whipped the North Sea into a cauldron to leave the wave fleet facing Storm chase-esque conditions at first light this morning. Soon after the initial attempt to resume the Women’s Wave Double Elimination the decision was made to postpone the Women’s contest due to safety concerns.


    SY18_ls_Arrianne_rescue.jpg

    Running For Safety


    That meant that the Men’s Wave fleet took centre stage, and with the 2018 Men’s PWA Wave World Championship at stake, there was plenty to fight for, but you couldn’t have scripted the drama and twists and turns that followed. Meanwhile, the Men’s Wave World Title wasn’t the only World Title decided on Day 6 as the contortionists of the windsurfing world also fought it out to the bitter end in the Freestyle.


    Wave


    Men’s


    An Emotional Rollercoaster


    Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses) had to endure an emotional rollercoaster today as he chased a 3rd Wave World Title. Things started brightly for Fernandez as the Spaniard sailed tactically astute heats to successfully defeat - Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde), Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails), Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses) and Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) - as the 34-year-old progressed into the top 3, while moving to within one victory of guaranteeing himself the world title.


    SY18_wv_Fernandez_flys.jpg

    Victor Fernandez


    Meanwhile, Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards / Point-7) could do nothing but sit and watch as Fernandez threatened to derail Campello’s own hopes of capturing a first wave world title as he stormed back through the double.


    SY18_wv_Campello_action.jpg

    Ricardo Campello


    Cue Heat 34 and the Start of the Drama


    Having won 5 consecutive heats in the Double Elimination, now there was only one man standing between Fernandez and a 3rd world title. The man in question? A certain Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails), who eliminated Fernandez in the quarterfinals of the Single Elimination and put Fernandez’s title hopes in jeopardy in the first place.


    SY18_wv_Traversa_360.jpg

    Thomas Traversa in the pocket


    The heat itself wasn’t so dramatic, but with almost nothing between them, this is where the confusion set in as incorrect information quickly filtered to Fernandez, who thought he had just won his third world title. However, at this point, the result hadn’t been fully verified or officially confirmed, which led to Fernandez having to be delivered the horrific news that Traversa had in actual fact won the heat by just 0.07 of a point and that he wasn’t world champion at all.


    SY18_ls_Fernandez_on_the_warpath.jpg

    Victor Fernandez


    The Villain and the Hero


    Having just played the villain by putting a spanner in the works of Fernandez’s world title aspirations, Fernandez was placed in a strange position, not only having to deal with the heartbreak of not being world champion - yet at least - but also now having to root for Traversa, who had just eliminated him, as all his hopes now rested in TT’s hands.


    SY18_wv_One_handed_back_loop_from_Thomas.jpg

    Thomas Traversa


    Agonising Wait


    However, in order for that to happen, Traversa would have to defeat Campello not once, but twice, which is no easy feat on any given day - but even more so with Campello himself gunning for the title. That left Fernandez with an agonising wait, which must have felt like a lifetime.


    SY18_ls_Ricardo_Campello.jpg

    Ricardo Campello heads out for one of the biggest heats of his career


    Fortunately for Fernandez, and not so fortunately for Campello, Traversa produced the goods at the critical times to win both the Final and the Super Final, and with it, Fernandez’s emotional rollercoaster was complete as he was now officially the 2018 Men’s PWA Wave World Champion.


    SY18_ls_Victor_takes_the_title.jpg

    Victor Fernandez World Champion For 3rd Time


    The win was also fitting for Traversa, who up until now had endured a tough competition season, but over the last 6 days TT has proven, once again, why he is one of the best wave sailors in the world. Traversa may have been low on confidence coming into the event, but at least walks away from 2018 with his first event victory since his title winning year in 2014 - while perhaps reminding every one of his ability, which has never really been under question.


    SY18_ls_Thomas_takes_the_waves.jpg

    Thomas Traversa celebrates


    Ricardo Campello, will no doubt be disappointed not to have captured his first wave world title, but the 33-year-old should be able to reflect on this season in a very positive manner after still finishing as the vice-world champion, which is his best overall result since 2011 - when he also finished 2nd overall.


    SY18_ls_Dream_over_for_Ricardo.jpg

    Ricardo Campello reflects


    Elsewhere, Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails), continued his giant killing ways as he claimed the scalp of 3-time world champion - Philip Koster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) in Heat 30b to eliminate Koster from this year’s title race, while Ruenes walks away from Sylt with an excellent 6th place.


    SY18_wv_Anthony_going_for_the_lip.jpg

    Antony Ruenes claims another scalp


    We’ll take a look at the overalls and other results in the event summary.


    Freestyle


    With Jacopo Testa (RRD / RRD Sails/ AL360) eliminating Yentel Caers (JP / Point-7) in Heat 46a that meant that Adrien Bosson (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins), who won the Single Elimination yesterday, and Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) would have a straight battle for the 2018 Men’s PWA Freestyle World Championship.


    SY18_fs_Jacapo_Testa.jpg

    Jacopo Testa


    Gollito was waiting in Heat 50 where he would eventually face - Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) - who had been on somewhat of a rampage in the Double Elimination. The Bonairean, who performed below par in yesterday’s quarterfinal, returned with a bang as he fought his way back into 3rd place after winning 5 heats on the bounce. Firstly defeating Nic Hibdige (Tabou / GA Sails), who earns his first top 10 result, Mattia Fabrizi (Patrik / Challenger Sails), Jacopo Testa, Sam Esteve (JP / NeilPryde) and Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP / Gun Sails), but after such an intense period of sailing he could not quite muster the performance to defeat Gollito.


    SY18_fs_Amado_action.jpg

    Amado Vrieswijk fights back to 3rd


    Title Showdown


    Having finished 2nd in the Single Elimination, Gollito would need to beat Bosson twice to be crowned Freestyle World Champion and given the way Bosson performed yesterday that was not going to be easy. However, in the Final looked underpowered on 4.4m and while he still sailed exceptionally well again he suffered a narrow 116 points to 117.3 points defeat as the title race was forced into a Super Final.


    SY18_fs_Gollito_action.jpg

    Jose 'Gollito' Estredo turns on the style when it matters most


    At this point, a victory for Bosson would force a sail off for the world title, while a victory for Gollito would secure a 9th world crown.


    For the sail off Bosson changed up to 4.8m which gave him more power and for a long time he was going blow-for-blow with Gollito, but the 8-time Freestyle World Champion has an uncanny knack of raising his game when it matters most and that’s exactly what the Venezuelan did again as he posted the highest scoring heat of the day - 130 points - to complete a superb comeback and win an incredible 9th world title, while only further enhancing his reputation as not only the King of Freestyle, but also the competition machine.


    SY18_ls_Nine_times_world_champion_Gollito_Estredo.jpg

    Gollito Estredo - 9 World Titles & Counting


    Meanwhile, Bosson walks away from this season as the vice-world champion, which is the Frenchman’s best result of his career so far, and he should be hugely proud of what he has achieved this year.

    During the first half of the morning it looked as though the action was set to continue on Day 7 of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sylt Super Grand Slam, but shortly before the skippers’ meeting at 10am the wind dropped and it never really threatened to return after that meaning the Slalom and Foil fleets remained on hold until 4pm - at which point they were released.

    Friday Outlook


    The forecast for tomorrow currently predicts southwesterly winds of 16-25 knots and 3-4ft waves, so with this in mind, an early skippers’ meeting has been called for the Women’s Wave fleet - 8am - with the hope that we will be able to complete the Double Elimination with only a maximum of 5 heats to run.


    The forecast then suggests that is could be windy for the rest of the day, which would provide the opportunity to switch back to Slalom or Foiling - and with the waves not guaranteed to be suitable - the racing fleets will meet at 9am for their skippers’ meeting with a first possible start at 10am (GMT+2).

    Actually, it is no news anymore that the time has come: CO2 reduction and compensation is the most important subject for everyone.


    A very interesting fact is that Mangroves are the most valuable plants on earth.


    Mangroves are the most sustainable, simple and efficient tool for CO2 compensation for every private person and for businesses of all kinds.


    We are the ones together, honoured to spread this information to the world, inviting thousands and millions of people to participate and share.

  • Das war Tag 8:


    Day 8 of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam saw light cross-shore winds and small waves, but unfortunately the wind wasn’t enough to allow the Women’s Wave Double Elimination to be completed.


    Throughout the day there had been much dispute and speculation that the shore break was too big to foil with it being dangerous to enter and leave the water, but just before 2pm Maciek Rutkowski (I-99 / Challenger Sails) proved that it was more than doable, with the tide and waves dropping, as he walked straight out and began foiling. After which, the decision was made almost immediately to run full fleet foil races in 5-9 knots of wind.

    Foiling


    Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Severne / Shamal Sunglasses) held a perfect record at the start of the day having won both races completed on Day 2 and the Italian still boasts a perfect record after being able to discard a 5th place in Elimination 3 after winning the next two races. In Elimination 5 Iachino did brilliantly to overtake Nicolas Goyard (Tabou / GA Sails) as the two of them headed for the finish line. Iachino now holds an almost unassailable lead with two days to go with a total score of just 2.8 points from 5 races.

    Meanwhile, Nicolas Goyard rises one place into 2nd after enjoying an excellent day which saw the 22-year-old win the opening elimination, before finishing 11th in Elimination 4 - which he discards - and then finishing 2nd in the last race of the day.

    Elsewhere, Alexandre Cousin (Patrik / GA Sails / Chopper Fins) also climbs one place, which sees him complete the event podium as things stand with Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) dropping to 6th place, while Antoine Questel (Starboard / S2Maui) suffered a day to forget as the Frenchman drops from 3rd to 14th.

    After a poor first day, Sebastian Kördel (Starboard / GA Sails), bounced back brilliantly as he recorded two 3rd places and a 4th from the 3 races completed today, which sees the German rise to 4th in the current event rankings after being outside the current top 10, but more importantly that would put him on course to finish on the overall podium as things stand.

    Mateus Isaac (JP / NeilPryde), who won an event in South Korea earlier this year, climbs three places to 5th, while Sebastian Kornum (JP / NeilPryde), Julien Bontemps (JP / NeilPryde), Steve Allen (Patrik / Severne) and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (Starboard / Severne / Chopper Fins) complete the top 10.

    Title Race


    In terms of the title race - Gonzalo Costa Hoevel - remains on course to win the first official PWA Slalom World Championship with the Argentine and his main rivals - Antoine Albeau and Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) - all looking like they will all discard this event meaning there is no change at the top of the rankings as things stand.


    SY18_fl_Gonzalo_Costa_Hoevel.jpg

    The forecast for tomorrow looks very light on paper with just 5-7 knots being predicted, but as the last couple of days have shown the forecast can’t really be trusted, so anything can still happen.


    Skippers’ Meeting Times Day 9 (All Times GMT+2)


    - Slalom Skippers' Meeting - 10:30am - first possible start 11am

    - Women’s Wave Fleet have been given a lay day.
