  • Die Vorhersage sieht ja bombastisch aus, die Foiler werden nur am Strand stehen🤣🏄, dafür die Waver für action sorgen!

    Slalom Fehlanzeige🙈

  • It’s time for one of the biggest events of the season, which sees the much of the windsurfing world descend upon Westerland Sylt, Germany for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA World Cup, which runs from the 27th September until 6th October. Over the next 10 days, the Men’s Freestyle and Foil world titles will be decided right here and now, while the men’s and women’s wave fleets will be competing in their penultimate event of the season.

    Classic stormy Sylt last year

    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.

    Ones To Watch

    Men’s

    Freestyle

    Title Race Connotations

    The Men’s Freestyle World title race looks as though it will be a two-horse race between joint world tour leaders - Youp Schmit (I-99 / Avanti) and Yentel Caers (I-99 / Point-7) - who are both on 19,600 points, which gives them a 550 point cushion over their next closest challengers - Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) and Steven Van Broeckhoven (Starboard / GUNSAILS) - who are tied in third on 19,050 points.

    SY18_fs_NB12_1016.jpg
    World title contender - Youp Schmit

    However, as the opening two events have shown almost anything can happen and there are certainly no foregone conclusions here - particularly as Schmit has faced a race against time just to be here after knee surgery, while both sailors have never finished better than 5th here.

    Schmit Sylt Record:         Caers Sylt Record:
    Best Result: 5th 2012 Best Result: 5th 2016
    2018: 17th 2018: 7th - but coming back from injury 2017: 9th 2017: 6th
    2016: 17th 2016: 5th
    2015: 11th 2015: 11th 2014: Injured 2014: 17th

    SY18_fs_BEL16_1195.jpg
    Fellow contender - Yentel Caers

    Single Elimination Scenario:

    - A top 4 finish or better for either Schmit or Caers would guarantee one of them the title no matter the results elsewhere. In the event that both sailors were to qualify for the top 4 then the title would then be decided by whoever finishes higher.

    - If either sailor (Schmit/Caers) finishes 4th or better in the single then one of them will win the title as the worse they could finish in the double is 5th, which gives an unassailable lead. For example, 5th place (9,600 points) in the double would leave Schmit or Caers on 29,100 points and a victory for either Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) or Steven Van Broeckhoven (Starboard / GUNSAILS) would only see them reach 29,050 points.

    - In order for Vrieswijk or Van Broeckhoven to have a shot at the title with just a single elimination, they would need Schmit/Caers to finish 5th or worse and win the single elimination themselves.

    - In the unlikely, but certainly not impossible event, that Schmit/Caers were to finish joint 9th in the single, then joint 5th place or better for Vrieswijk/Van Broeckhoven would see them move into the lead.

    Outside Chance

    - However, in the above scenario where Schmit/Caers finish joint 9th in the single - that would then bring Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails) into the equation, as if the Frenchman was the win the single elimination, then Vrieswijk or Van Broeckhoven would be required to finish second in order to stay ahead.

    Double Elimination Scenario

    - A top 6 finish or better for Schmit/Caers would guarantee one of them the world title. If both finish in the top 6 then whoever beats who would win the world title.

    - If Schmit/Caers were to finish joint 7th - then Vrieswijk or Van Broeckhoven could still win the title by finishing at least second. In the event of a Vrieswijk/Van Broeckhoven final, whoever beats who would win the world title.

    Foil

    The race for the 2019 Men’s Foil PWA World Championship is going to be incredibly tight with just 300 points covering 1st-9th meaning that any of those sailors realistically have a shot at the title.

    Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Severne / Starboard Foil) comes into the final Foil event of the year leading on countback having finished 3rd in Costa Brava, but Pierre Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / LOKEFOIL), who won the opening event of the year in Japan), Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne / Starboard Foil) and Alexandre Cousin (Patrik / Phantom Sails / Phantom Foils) are all on 19,500 points after two events.

    8c788a97de.jpg
    Matteo Iachino

    Just behind the leading quartet are the Goyard brother’s - Thomas Goyard (FMX Racing / Phantom Sails / Phantom Foils), who won the last event in Costa Brava, and Nicolas Goyard (Tabou / GA Sails / Phantom Foils), and they are just 100 points further back on 19,400 points. If the Foiling is mainly upwind/downwind then that would make Thomas the heavy favourite given his dominance in Costa Brava. However, a blend of both upwind/down and Foil Slalom would throw the race wide open.

    Sebastian Kördel (Starboard / GA Sails / Starboard Foil) and Sebastian Kornum (JP / NeilPryde) next in line in 7th and 8th place, but on 19,300 points they remain very much in the title race as does Julien Bontemps (JP / NeilPryde), who finished second in Costa Brava, on 19,200 points. With such a tightly sprung field a positive start is likely to going to prove very important as there really is no margin for error.

    Wave

    Women’s

    Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360) comes into the penultimate wave event of the year as the current world tour leader after securing back-to-back second places in Gran Canaria & Tenerife. The Pole is currently enjoying her best year to date on the world tour with her hard work paying off and she will be determined to defend her lead.

    1b570d0f65.jpg
    Justyna Sniady

    However, she will face a stern test with reigning world champion - Iballa Moreno (Severne / Severne Sails / Maui Ultra Fins - waiting in the wings and trailing by just 115 points after bouncing back from 4th place in Pozo with an excellent victory - despite not being 100% fit in Tenerife. That victory throws Iballa right back into world title contention, and another victory here would make winning 6 world titles on the bounce a real possibility with the season finale to come in Ho’okipa, Maui.

    a6f4ea6add.jpg
    Iballa Moreno

    Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) has shown moments of brilliance in the opening two events, but so far this season, on the wave tour at least, she hasn’t peaked at the pinnacle moments. The Aruban comes into Sylt in third place after two-third place finishes and will know that defending her event title here from 2018 will be imperative to keeping her faint world title hopes alive for 2019.

    eb37941c2b.jpg
    Sarah-Quita Offringa

    Outside from the current top 3, the next biggest threat is likely to be Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails), who missed the opening event of the year but then secured an excellent fourth place in Tenerife. The 22-year-old finished third her in 2018 - her best result to date - and should be there or there about again.

    c4a57c94db.jpg
    Lina Erpenstein

    Elsewhere, keep an eye out for Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), Caterina Stenta (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360 / Maui Ultra Fins), who are currently ranked 4th and 5th respectively, 14-year-old Alexia Kiefer Quintana (Fanatic / Duotone), Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) and Steffi Wahl (Sailloft Hamburg), who is just returning from a foot injury which forced her to miss the opening two events of the season.

    9001d795fc.jpg
    Steffi Wahl

    Men’s

    Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards) currently leads the men’s Wave World Tour as the 33-year-old continues his quest to win his first wave world title - having won 3 Freestyle world titles at the start of his career. Last year Campello just missed out on the event and world title with Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) staging a superb come back to thwart Campello’s world title aspirations. A second place again here would stand Campello in good stead heading into the season finale, but you can expect to see the Venezuelan/Brazilian gunning for the top again as he aims for his second victory of the season.

    50b6ccdc36.jpg
    Ricardo Campello

    Coming into Sylt - Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX) - is Campello’s closest rival with the Australian leaping into second place in the overall rankings after claiming his first victory on the world tour in Tenerife. Stone has earned one podium here in the last 3 years, while his worst result here since 2016 is 5th, so you can expect to see him at the business end of the contest again as he looks to stay in the hunt for the 2019 title.

    e844c5bb11.jpg
    Jaeger Stone

    Just behind the front two then come 4-time world champion and German hero - Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) - reigning world champion - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone) and both will be looking to notch up their opening wins of the season to thrust themselves firmly back into contention heading into Maui. Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) is then a place further back in 5th, but with the Brazilian currently trailing Campello by 3,517 points at the halfway stage, nothing short of a victory will do here.

    e8bb37ecca.jpg
    Philip Köster

    Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails) has a phenomenal record in Sylt with the Spaniard winning here in 2016, while finishing 4th for the past two years, which will make him a real threat again, while defending event champion Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails), seems to have rekindled his competition flame - making him an obvious threat too.

    bd8f6e9c6e.jpg
    Last year's winner - Thomas Traversa off the lip

    The top 10 is currently completed by Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) - 7th - who is enjoying his best season to date on the world tour. The same is also true of Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer Sails) in 9th, while the German crowd will be gunning for Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde).

    Elsewhere, keep an eye out for Julian Salmonn (Bruch Boards / GUNSAILS), Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX), Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone), Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX), Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails) and Omar Sanchez (Star-Fish / KA Sail), who complete the top 16 at this stage.

  • SURF-WELTMEISTER PHILIP KÖSTERMit 12 Brettern und 20 Segeln nach Sylt

    Damit es mit Titel Nr. 5 klappt

    „Die Nordsee bleibt immer eine spezielle Sache“, sagt Philip Köster (25).

    Normal surft der viermalige Weltmeister im warmen Wasser. Doch für den Weltcup auf Sylt packt er gerne den 5,3 mm dicken Neopren-Anzug ein.

    Denn vor Westerland will Köster ab Freitag die Basis für seinen 5. Titel legen. „Das wäre der Wahnsinn. Aber erstmal geht es darum, hier gut abzuschneiden.“

    Die Entscheidung fällt beim Saisonfinale auf Hawaii (27.10 – 9.11.). Köster liegt aktuell auf Rang drei im Wellenreiten – hinter dem Brasilianer Ricardo Campello und dem Australier Jaeger Stone. Köster: „Ich bin nicht der Gejagte, sondern der Jäger...“

    Bei der EM in Klitmöller/Dänemark wurde er gerade Fünfter. „Wir hatten wirklich nicht viel Wind. Insofern war es nur ein kleiner Test. Aber ich habe mich an die Bedingungen gewöhnt. Der Wind fühlt sich bei Kälte anders als, viel härter im Segel. Jetzt freue ich mich auf Sylt, die Wellen hier haben mehr Kraft.“

    Tatsächlich ist die Wettervorhersage günstig. „Allerdings soll auch sehr viel Regen kommen“, sagt Köster. „Aber das gehört auf Sylt natürlich dazu. Ohne wäre es ja langweilig...“

    Um nichts dem Zufall zu überlassen, hat er zwölf Bretter und 20 Segel in unterschiedlichen Größen dabei. Als Material-Caddy hilft Jugendfreund Jorge, mit dem er auf Gran Canaria täglich auf dem Wasser ist. Zu Unterstützung ist Papa Rolf mit dem Wohnmobil angereist. Und schließlich ist auch noch Freundin Manca Notar (23) vor Ort. „Es ist schön, sie dabei zu haben“, schwärmt der Sonnyboy. Der Windsurf-Profi und die Stand-Up-Paddlerin aus Slowenien sind seit vier Jahren ein Paar.

    Das war der Einschreibetag:


    With the opening day of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA World Cup belonging purely to registration, day one in Sylt was relatively calm with the competitors preparing their equipment for the next 9 days of competition, which continues to look windy on the latest forecast models.


    SY19_fl_Balz_Muller_Foil_table_top.jpg

    A total of 104 competitors have registered for this year’s edition with 29 freestylers, 31 foil sailors, 12 women’s wave sailors and 32 men’s wave sailors (4 of which will come through the trials) signing up. The official opening ceremony was then held shortly before 4pm to conclude a relaxed opening day.

    A quick look at the Freestyle Single Elimination shows a daunting first round heat for world title hopeful Youp Schmit (I-99 / Avanti), who has been pitted against former Freestyle World Champion - Kiri Thode (Severne / Severne Sails), while his world title rivals have been handed much easier draws on paper with Yentel Caers (I-99 / Point-7) up against Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde, Steven van Broeckhoven (Starboard / GUNSAILS) takes on Ezri Heijmans, while Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) receives a bye into the next round.

    With a promising looking forecast for the weekend the Wave and Freestyle fleets will meet at 8:30am (GMT+2) for their first skippers’ meeting of the week with a first possible start at 9am. Meanwhile, the skippers’ meeting for the Foil fleet will be held at 10:30am with a first possible start at 12pm. The forecast for tomorrow currently predicts 20-28 knots winds from the southwest, so Saturday should see the start of either the Wave of the Freestyle Single Eliminations.

  • Mal ne ganz doofe Frage, Material ist nur beim Freestyle fest? Auch Segel oder nur die Boards?

    Bei Wave ist alles frei, also man kann auch Custom Boards und Segel fahren?

    Slalom ist ja klar.


    Grüße

  • Ich weiss es gar nicht mehr bei Freestyle, ich meine nur die Boards.


    Wave ist freie Materialwahl.


    Slalom Boards und Segel, aber erstmals wird auf Sylt kein Slalom mehr gefahren, dafür Foil.

    Foil hat auch die Materialbindung.

  • PS twofingers

    Ben Proffitt hat mir geschrieben, dass das Gepäck der Film-/Technikcrew nicht angekommen sei. Es sind wohl wieder dieselben, von denen die geilen Videos aus Hvide Sande stammen. Ich bin gespannt und hoffe auf Dronen-Videos auch von Freestyle und Wave..!


    Zu den letzten Heats heute gab es dann auch endlich nen Livestream, scheint also angekommen zu sein.

  • Das war Tag 2:


    The opening day of competition at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sylt PWA World Cup proved to be a day not to forget with heavy overhead high waves, and winds varying between 15-35 knots producing a true Sylt Classic as the Freestyle and Wave fleets hit the water for the first time this event.

    Women’s


    At the end of the first day of competition in Sylt - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) - has hauled herself back into title race contention after claiming a convincing victory in the single elimination ahead of current world tour leader - Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360).


    SY19_wv_Sarah_loops_in_the_rain.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa prepares to stall a forward


    The Aruban was at her brilliant best today and she dominated proceedings - setting 3 out of the 4 highest wave scores - including a superb 9 point wave - as well as also recording 4 out of the top 5 highest jump scores. Offringa won the event here last year and clearly demonstrated why with her performance today. If things were to remain as they are at the moment then Offringa would close to within just 200 points of Sniady heading into Maui - where she is also the defending event champion.


    SY19_wv_SQ_on_fire.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa in the pocket


    Sniady will be happy to have secured her place in a third final of the season - having previously never made a final - but was then out of sync with the conditions in the final as some times happens. However, Sniady is already guaranteed her third consecutive podium as she continues to enjoy her best season on the world tour.


    SY19_wv_Justyna_Sniady.jpg

    Justyna Sniady


    At this stage, Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails) completes the podium after defeating Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) in the battle for third and fourth. The German showed excellent wave selection and execution to prevail as the 22-year-old aims to secure back-to-back podiums in Sylt.


    SY19_wv_Lena_slash.jpg

    Lina Erpenstein


    On her way to earning her best result in a wave single elimination - Maaike Huvermann - caused without doubt the biggest upset of the day by taking down reigning world champion - Iballa Moreno (Severne / Severne Sails / Maui Ultra Fins) - in Heat 5b before earning 4th place. You certainly wouldn’t rule Iballa out from storming back through the double still, but things have just become a whole lot harder for the 10-time world champion.

    Maaike Huvermann


    Iballa currently shares 5th place with Marine Hunter (KA Sail), Caterina Stenta (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360 / Maui Ultra Fins) and Steffi Wahl (Sailloft Hamburg).

    Men’s


    The opening round of the men’s single elimination was also completed with Sylt producing hollow, punchy waves for the world’s best men to take advantage of - although there were some broken masts along the way.


    Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails), who we mentioned in the preview, has a great Sylt record in recent years - kicked off his campaign this year by posting the highest heat score of the day - 22.85 points - as he defeated Miguel Chapuis (JP / NeilPryde). The Spaniard landed a big one-foot backloop, while pinging several trademark frontside 360s to eventually earn the highest single wave score also - 8.95 points. Mussolini will now face - Marc Paré (Simmer / Simmer Sails) - after the young Spaniard produced an excellent display against - Jules Denel (JP / NeilPryde) to advance.


    SY19_wv_Alex_Mussolini.jpg

    Alex Mussolini


    All of the title contenders - Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards), Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX), Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone) and Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) are all safely into the round of 16, but Stone was the pick of the top seeds in the opening round. The Australian landed a massive goiter - the only one of the day - to earn 8 points, while also stomping a perfect double forward and tweaking a frontside air. Stone posted the second highest scoring heat of the day - 21.57 points - and early indications show he could be a major threat for the event title, having secured his first victory on the world tour last month in Tenerife.


    SY19_wv_Jaeger_Goiter.jpg

    Jaeger Stone


    However, Arthur Arutkin (Fanatic / Duotone), who was Stone’s opponent, will feel slightly aggrieved as he posted the 6th highest heat of the day, and still found himself on the losing side of the heat. The young Frenchman would have advanced through the majority of the other first round heats, but just got unlucky with his draw!

    Elsewhere, Julian Salmonn (Bruch Boards / GUNSAILS) completed the double over his boss - Dany Bruch (Bruch Boards / GA Sails / AL360) after also prevailing against Bruch in Tenerife. Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) took down Ross Williams (Tabou / GA Sails), who came through the trials. Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) survived against last year’s giant killer - Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails) - while Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / Duotone) progressed against Graham Ezzy (Tabou / Ezzy Sails).

    Julian Salmonn


    Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails) enjoyed a successful day - posting the third highest Freestyle heat of the day - before eliminating Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX) in Heat 6a. Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX) negotiated his way past a potentially very tricky draw against Omar Sanchez (Star-Fish / KA Sail), 16-year-old Marino Gil (Goya Windsurfing) claimed a big scalp by defeating Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde), while Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) progressed from a tight heat against Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Duotone).

    Elsewhere, Antoine Albert (Goya Windsurfing), deserves a mention for his performance in the Qualification Round. The New Caledonian showed a fearless approach against Sylt’s heavy, thick waves and landed sick aerials and critical turns to deservedly earn his place in the main draw, before being eliminated by reigning world champion - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone).

    At the beginning of the day, the contortionists of the windsurfing world took centre stage in typically difficult Sylt freestyle conditions, but as the first round progressed, so did the conditions and the scores.


    The two main title contenders, Youp Schmit (I-99 / Avanti), Yentel Caers (I-99 / Point-7), survived the first round unscathed. Schmit faced easily the hardest first round test of any of the title contenders, but successfully negotiated his way past former world champion - Kiri Thode (Severne / Severne Sails) - despite only undergoing knee surgery several weeks ago. Caers also produced a proficient display to advance and will now face Balz Müller (MB-Boards / Severne), whilst Schmit will face another former Freestyle world champion in the shape of Dieter van der Eyken.

    Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails) kept his slim world title hopes alive by defeating Aron Etmon (Starboard / Severne) and will now face Jacopo Testa (RRD / RRD Sails) in Heat 9a. Meanwhile, fellow world title hopeful Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) will take on Riccardo Marca (Fanatic / Duotone) after the Italian defeated Davy Scheffers (Tabou / GA Sails). The Dutchman performed 3 port tack moves outside the area, which ultimately cost him a place in the next round. Steven Van Broeckhoven (Starboard / GUNSAILS) also safely advances into the round of 32.

    Heat 8a between - Nicolas Akgazciyan (JP / NeilPryde) and Antoine Albert (Goya Windsurfing) - produced the highest scoring, and tightest, heat of the day with just 0.3 of a point separating them by the end of the heat. Albert posted the highest score of the day - 122.5 points - but Akgazciyan was incredibly unlucky as he posted the second highest scoring heat of the first round - 122.3 points - but was still eliminated. Next up for Albert, is Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone), who received a bye through the first round.


    Elsewhere, Sam Esteve (JP / NeilPryde), Francesco Cappuzzo (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360), Giovanni Passani (Tabou / GA Sails) are all into the next round.


    The forecast for Sunday shows plenty of potential for more competition with the wind expected to remain side shore from the left. The only slight question mark remains over the amount of rain expected during the afternoon and early evening - 4.1-6.7mm - but the sailors will meet again tomorrow morning.
