18/07/2019 – 7th day of the Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival: Daida Moreno and Ricardo Campello were crowned champions by Pozo after successfully defended the results from individual eliminations in epic double final eliminations
The finals day at Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival 2019 has certainly not disappointed with several Titanic battles that took place with winds over the 40 knots and best waves that have provided a perfect end to another epic race Pozo Izquierdo with the best wave riders of the world that continue to push once again the boundaries of sport.
Double female Eliminations
The opening day of the women saw the reigning world champion – Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) – Sarah-Quita Offringa approached from (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) in a battle for the podium. Iballa hs accumulated scores with higher jumps, and the situation and’ remained balanced on the Starboard wave until he produced a moment of magic with a radical taka from 8,5 points that proved the difference by allowing Offringa to advance.
Having navigated so well against Iballa, many thought that Offringa would then use that provision as a springboard to gain momentum and make their way to the podium. However, the Aruba produced a display then unusually lower than at a critical time and eventually was eliminated by Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360), He won another heat solid landing forward and back loop, earning the highest single wave score of the heat. Offringa started off with a big forward stalled and high, but then underwent numerous attempts of backloop.
The real problem for Offringa was riding in that 15 World Champion recorded only two attempts to wave riding during the entire duration of the 15 minutes, which cost him dearly as Sniady successfully defended its place among the first two.
Pending Sniady in the final there was Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins), He flew out of the starting blocks to accumulate over 25 points in the early 4 minutes after landing a big forward stalled completely dry, one handed Backloop in all ways, Unleashing several cutback fluids and slashati. Sniady started slowly and while you are shooting towards the end of the heat with a good table forward was gone’ no chance for the Polish to rebel against Daida, I added a table forward at his match report to seal the victory, While it also has pulled the trigger with a double forward which was not far from aterrare!
Double Eliminations, masculine
In Pozo Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) and Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses) they always won alternately by the 2006. However, everything has changed today with Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards) they rejected the late charge to win the first event of the year Köster wave!
KÖSTER began his comeback through the Double knockout against Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses) and started with a real statement of intent when he scored the highest score of the entire contest – 45,39 points – which means only 4,61 maximum possible points in less than a 50.
KÖSTER has then faced a rematch against Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing): the two riders produced another heat epic, just as in the single elimination with both athletes who haven't left anything on the line. Both sailors landed huge double forward and double forward table, While they remained very balanced on their scores of the waves. Critically, However, KÖSTER has managed to place a pushloop forward just about perfect to earn 9,7 points, While Browne had discontinued its 3 attempts to open, but the tie remained in the balance until the last minute when Browne needed a jump from at least 7,85 points to win. Unfortunately for Browne, his last-minute pushloop forward did not complete being worth only 7 points and Köster marched to the final against Campello, While Browne completed the podium in Pozo.
He then won a clear victory against KÖSTER Campello in the final, After Campello asked a slow start and was unable to complete his match report indicating that there would be a Super Finale to follow.
At this point the decision was made by the Head Judge to extend to 5 minutes duration of heat up to 20 minutes to get a winner over the battle. Campello has used the break between a heat and the other to recompose himself and the 34-year-old produced a much better performance in the Super final landing a massive double forward from 8.5 points, a pushloop forward from 9.2 points and a tweaked pushloop to put Köster under pressure.
The 4 World Champion responded with a huge double forward stalled to gain a 10 perfect and has also landed a big backloop to a foot to earn more 6.12 points and with the German well ahead in the wave riding was well balanced to attack seemed Köster. However, instead of focusing on jumps, KÖSTER focused on waves, so much so that his caddie desperate ran desperately up and down the beach trying to communicate that information to Köster. Apparently unbeknownst to the 25-year-old, he needed only one jump from 4,51 points to win the round, but only in the last seconds has launched a “here goes nothing” tabletop double forward who failed to close allowing Campello to interrupting the supremacy Köster / Fernandez. In hindsight, a great forward stalled or tweaked pushloop could be enough to win.
Campello didn't leave anything for granted sailing brilliantly under pressure when and’ served, showing off the radical side which makes it so much fun to watch, launching backloops a foot and a hand, a forward to one foot while trying a huge forward-into-air spock and he deserves the title of this event with a perfect start to the season in his quest for a first world title wave.
The program for the last two days of the event is to organize a Super Session for youth. Friday, the Boy's and Girl's U15 U13s and U15, U17 and U20 will compete, While Saturday the Boy's U17 and U20 will take center stage one last time. Signup for tomorrow will be held at 12:00 (GMT + 1) with a first possible departure at 13:00.
