10/04/2019 – The upheavals and surprises are continued in the men's elimination of the second day of the PWA World Cup FORSA Bonaire of 2019, While the biggest names in women's draw have prevailed in another action-packed day at Sorobon Beach. The wind took a little’ time to give the best of himself, but during the finals has reached an intensity of 25 nodes, that brought the show to the next level. After an exciting day of competition there is a new name to the top of the ranking, local rider Youp Schmit (I-99 / Come in), that tasted victory for the first time, While Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) rejected the insidious Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins).
Unlike the men's draw, the female's favorite Single Elimination have managed to reach the finals. In the opening semifinal Oda Johanne (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) has long remained in front of Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins). This until the 21-year-old pulled off a brilliant double spock to turn the heat to his advantage and has booked her place in the final of the Sarah-Quita Offringa where winners would face (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra-bright Fins), that exceeded Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) in the semifinals with a good performance.
Having booked his place in the finals of the winners – Huvermann said he would change his strategy against Offringa and the current vice world champion certainly tried everything he had in the challenge to world champion. Huvermann has played a brilliant finale, opening with a kono before adding a ass, shove-it spock and landing double spock on both walls, But how often does, Offringa pulled out its highest heat of the contest in the final – 141,6 points – to claim a well deserved win. On his way to victory, Offringa has also landed a double spock, ass burners before concluding the final with a spock-ass for a great start to his title defence.
In the battle for the 3 ° e 4 th place, ODA Johanne faced Arrianne Aukes – and it was the Norwegian to emerge.
At the end of the Single Elimination, the first 4 are exactly the same as the top 4 last year's General.
In the Freestyle event of the opening of the year all 3 the first 3 last year they were eliminated in the second round or earlier as vice world champion – Adrien Bosson (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) – and Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) – who have suffered early exits in surprise just like it did yesterday Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone). Bosson has fallen into the hands of John Pal (Tabou / GA Sails / AL360), While Youp Schmit (I-99 / Come in) defeated Vrieswijk and either Pal that Schmit have become the rider of the day.
With all 3 the first 3 the last year out of the equation, It seemed that the door would be wide open to Yentel Caers (I-99 / Point-7) – 4 th overall in 2018 – or Steven Van Broeckhoven win (Starboard / Gun Sails) – 5 th overall in 2018. Both men have successfully sailed through their opening heats of day to meet up against each other in the quarterfinals. The battle of Belgium that followed turned out to be the nearest of all the single elimination with just 0,8 points separating the two riders, for the benefit of Caers that is then landed next to the heat.
However, Caers's next opponent was Julian Mas (JP / Gun Sails) He claimed the scalp of Gollito Estredo on opening day before producing another excellent performance to defeat Nic Hibdige (Tabou / GA Sails) followed by compatriot – Sam Esteve (JP / NeilPryde) – to prove that this wasn't just a lucky shot and that he intended to pursue seriously. And unfortunately for Caers, MAS continued his incredible test of strength in his semifinal with the 29-year-old who barely made errors, It gave the impression to land any manoeuvres would, including another new combination with a flaka-clock super technique, I saw Mas set the highest score of the competition so far – 171.30 points – and you have booked a place in the first final of his career.
Waiting for Mas in final was the local guy Youp Schmit after the rider managed to defeat Julian Wiemar (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) in the quarterfinals, followed by an impressive victory against John Pal (Tabou / GA Sails), who had been in form inspired, in the semifinals.
Schmit gave the best of himself in the finals of the winners and had extra motivation to compete in his home event. The 24-year-old has had its share of injuries and misfortunes so far in his career, But today everything worked while showing the best of his repertoire, with shove-it spock very radical, Ponch in a hand and ponch Clew ahead, claiming a memorable first victory deserved in front of home crowd.
In the finals of the winners, MAS has wavered a bit’ for the first time during the contest and as a result failed to put pressure on Schmit, but it will still be happy with his best performance ever in world tour.
Caers Yentel has secured the last spot on the podium winning the battle for third and fourth place between him and John Pal with the Belgian who scored the best result of all the single elimination – 171,5 points.
PAL has proven to be in great form during the contest, with impressive heat against Adrien Bosson and Taty Frans (Point-7). No matter how it turns out this is the best result so far for the Italian.
After the completion of the Single Elimination, the race was restarted almost immediately with the double elimination, who saw the 9 world champion – Gollito Estredo – in the first round, and it's something that doesn't happen ever. The Venezuelan has faced Tonky Frans and vented, creating the best score of the day up to that point – 172,6 points. Gollito has then successfully continued his comeback by defeating Jacopo Head (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360) to create a compelling third round against Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) After the bonairiano bested Louis Fabiano (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg) in Heat 22b doing the highest score so far – 181,9 points.
Earlier in the week, No one would have ever expected that Gollito and Vrieswijk met only in the third round of the Double Elimination, but now they are ready for a colossal challenge and the loser potentially will already be realistically out of the title race.
Complete the rest of the first round, Richard Brand (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra-bright Fins), Jamie Howard (F2 / F2), Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails), Max Rowe (Simmer / Simmer Sails), Davy Scheffers (Tabou / GA Sails) and Albert Antoine (Goya Windsurfing) who have all qualified for the second round.
Unfortunately, during the opening round of the reigning champion of the event – Kiri Thode (Severne / Severne Sails) – He suffered a serious injury against Antony Ruenes and all PWA would like to wish all the best for his recovery Kiri.
The wind should be lighter on Thursday with WindGuru which provides 16-19 nodes. The riders will take the skipper's meeting at 9, with starting as soon as possible to 9:30.
