Windsurfing - 16. July 2015.

Gran Canaria PWA World Cup

Another full day of competition on day two of the Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival saw  women’s double eliminations completed as Pozo delivered the goods again - with further strong winds and excellent waves for the majority of the day.  Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) was looking to defend her double elimination crown and that’s exactly what she managed to do as they make a perfect start to the season. However, there were several other standout performances today as several sailors battled their way back through the double elimination in  women’s divisions.

Winners’ Final

Reigning world champion - Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) - defeated Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins) to set up another final against her sister Daida. If Iballa was to win the event then she would need to beat Daida twice. However, Daida, was in no mood to give Iballa a second chance as she produced a clinical performance - particularly in the jumping department where she landed a massive stalled forward and a completely one-handed backloop - for the entire rotation. Things didn’t quite click for Iballa in the final and it was soon revealed that Daida would once again be the champion of Pozo.

Daida Moreno speaks after winning the 2015 Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival: 

“I’m really stoked, this is a really special place for me, even though people might think I’m winning all the time. For me it’s just the proof that I push really hard and my training and all my hours on the water have paid off. This year is also really special to me because I finished university and now i’ll have much more time for training. Me and Iballa have great support from out sponsors - especially Anfi, Severne and Starboard, so we can go ahead and compete on the whole tour and try to get the best results in the world. Last year I managed to win here and in Tenerife, but that doesn’t mean that I can win the overall title as last year proved, but it’s a really a good start and like I said this place is special to me, which makes it more special.”

Steffi Wahl (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg) won four heats in a row today with her stylish backside riding doing plenty of damage together with her consistent forward loops. The German defeated Waka Nishida (Goya Windsurfing), Justyna Sniady (Simmer) and Caterina Stenta (RRD / RRD / Maui Ultra Fins) - who also impressed with her stylish wave riding to earn her best event result so far - before also beating Amanda Beenen (99NoveNove / Point-7). Wahl then faced Sarah-Quita Offringa in the battle for third and fourth and looked to have gotten the better of the lady from Aruba, before Offringa snatched the victory with her final wave to earn her second podium finish on the PWA Wave World Tour.
