The double elimination was as blessed with the same blasting wind as the single elimination and spectators and judges got incredible action to watch. The winners of the single elimination Philip Köster and Daida Moreno both were seriously challenged in the all decisive final but were able to defend their positions. Philip Köster got himself in a good position to aim for his 5th world title this year. Philip Köster also attempted a triple loop, the holy grail for windsurf pro’s at the moment.
In the women’s fleet Sarah-Quita Offringa (ARU) surprised by winning the battle for second rank against Iballa Moreno and therefore got in the way of another double victory for the Moreno twins in Gran Canaria. She now had the chance to even secure first place in Gran Canaria. But Pozo-expert Daida Moreno delivered an outstanding performance with hardly any space for Sarah-Quita to beat her.
