13/04/2019 – On the last day of the FORSA Bonaire PWA World Cup of 2019 It was announced as Super Saturday, and in the end did not disappoint with a mix of excitement and drama for a perfect ending in front of a crowded beach, that has created an atmosphere of typhus that stimulated the best freestylers in the world to push even harder in search of victory.
The final day was divided into two parts and in the morning the female fleet was reduced to just three women still in the race. Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) successfully defended 4 th place, and undermining Oda Johanne (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) for all the heat to the 3 ° e 4 °, but failed to land a major manoeuvre starboard tack and lost the chance to get on the podium.
Afternoon restarts Johanne faced a rematch with Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) and for a long time the heat was offset, However, Huvermann then has increased its score by landing a double spock on both walls and a ass to win a rematch with Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) – leaving the Norwegian completing the podium 3 th place.
In the final Huvermann, just like he did in the single elimination, He tried everything he had in repertoire Offringa, but for a long time was the rider of Aruba to lead the fight and looked like they would have claimed victory. However, Huvermann has managed to stay in contention for everything and in the final seconds the 21-year-old landed a superb chachoo normal, bringing the event to a Super final.
Offringa was very sporting in defeat, his first time he lost a heat in 11 years in world tour, but of course I was glad to hear the result.
After a short break, Offringa and Huvermann challenged each other again: the winner would win the event. However, has been Starboard who has managed to bring his game to another level to win the opening event of the year. Huvermann, After reaching the summits of the final, failed to replicate the same performance again and after a couple of failed attempts at double spock took some words of wisdom from the beach by Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails) to raise Huvermann to further combat.
And that's exactly what he did – landing again twice on both the walls double spock. Offringa however ruled the second highest score of the competition to be rightfully crowned Queen of Bonaire. Both girls have deservedly received a warm reception upon returning to the beach after sported a wonderful show.
Sarah-Quita Offringa: “Thank you all, and thanks to everyone on the beach, We can hear the cheers from the water and this really motivates us! This was the first time in 11 years that I missed a heat, and I thought about this week – about how I would react … I didn't want to be a loser and actually, I felt a sense of excitement after the heat with Maaike! Congratulations to Maaike – He surfed tremendously! Thanks to all of the PWA for a great week! “
Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) was the star of double: the local guy continued his comeback in the morning by defeating Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA Sails), Giovanni Passani (Tabou / GA Sails / AL360) and Yentel Caers (THE -99 / Point-7) to enter top 3. At this point, Vrieswijk had already won 7 batteries in a row.
After a pause of half day, Vrieswijk resumed then defeated Julian Mas (JP / Gun Sails), who had already secured his first podium ever. The atmosphere during this heat was outstanding, with the local crowd cheering for their local guy, While the French team supported for your man. Unfortunately for Mas, He never reached the heights he had shown in the single elimination, leaving Vrieswijk to prepare a final against boneriano – Youp Schmit (I-99 / Come in).
In the final Vrieswijk proved too strong for Schmit doing once a monstrous score of over 180 points: superfinal.
The Super final started dramatically … before the start of heating, Schmit needed medical treatment for a swollen foot and only a few minutes after the 24-year-old looked back at the beach. At this point, the crowd and the judges were unsure if Schmit was forced to retire through injury. It turned out that Schmit had lost its fin after attempting a flaka-shaka in the shallows. Once Schmit has approached the beach, He threw away his Board and understandably looked downcast. However the local crowd has been felt and Schmit reacted immediately landing a double ass. Eventually it was Vrieswijk, who won 10 consecutive rounds to be crowned King of Bonaire, But even more important to take an important step towards a first world title having defeated before the 9 world champion – Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) – in 3 ° round of the double elimination.
Even Schmit deserves great credit for the way he has dug deep when it really mattered and it should be enormously proud for her first podium in world tour, You can also see him finish the event as one of the title contenders for the 2019.
Amado Vrieswijk commented: “It was a long week, long, long, but still impressive. The wind was light, but the level was so high and Youp moved me tremendously! I'm really, really happy! “
