PWA Sylt World Cup

The Reno PWA Sylt World Cup provided an outstanding array of conditions for 2012, as anything from cross to cross offshore wave riding to perfect freestyle conditions hit Sylt over the ten days of the event. In front of the biggest crowds of the year, some of the most epic action occurred to provide a truly fitting end to another incredible year on tour. The PWA would like to offer a huge congratulations to all of the newly crowned PWA World Champions; Iballa Ruano Moreno (Starboard / Severne), Valerie Arrighetti (Tabou / Gaastra / Mystic), and last but not least Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Gaastra / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins / Chris Benz).


Women’s Wave



Single Elimination



Laure Treboux (Fanatic / North) defeated Karin Jaggi (Patrik / Severne) for the first time in the losers’ final to also book her place on the podium in the waves for the first time. Treboux was able to pick the better of the waves, and crucially, once she was on the wave she delivered a number of silky smooth turns to put Jaggi on the back foot. As the fellow countrywomen battled it out, Jaggi tried to battle back but she didn’t have enough to stop Treboux from winning.



Winners’ Final



Another all Moreno final took place, after both of the legendary sisters escaped close calls in the semi-finals to book their places in the winners’ final. The final took place in very different conditions from the opening two events of the year as lighter cross-shore winds and waist to chest high waves rolled into Sylt. The head judge, Duncan Coombs, made the decision to run a fifteen minute heat with two waves and no jumps to count, which some thought shifted the favor in Iballa’s direction. As it turned out Iballa did come out on top of the contest as she performed her wave rides with more aggression and verticalness. Daida also scored a couple of good waves, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Iballa from winning.



Double Elimination



After defeating Karin Jaggi for the first time in the single elimination losers’ final, Laure Treboux was able to do exactly the same again on the final day, to cement her place on the podium in the final event of the year. On her way to her second successive victory over her compatriot, Treboux was able to land a super clean forward loop and a perfectly landed shuvit. Whilst in the difficult wave riding conditions the Swiss styler was also able to win the battle as she linked several great backside smacks to leave Jaggi reeling.



Winners’ Final



The Moreno twins lined up again for the last winners’ final of the year, and they both sailed terrific heats to give the 2012 PWA World Tour the send off it deserves. Daida landed a great backloop within minutes of the start, as she did everything in her power to force a super final at the very minimum. Her sister, Iballa, though had different plans though and the newly crowned 2012 champion landed a forward loop off the lip just behind the wave. Daida showed more of her competition qualities, as she linked together a couple of turns on the wave before throwing a forward loop off the lip, as well as a backside air on one of her later waves. However, Iballa was ripping on her waves as she sent the spray flying with a couple of super powerful backside smacks. In the dying minutes Iballa then edged into the lead as she landed a perfect backloop. Unfortunately for Daida, her highest scoring wave of the heat had started after the final buzzer had sounded and so it would not count. With the world title in the bag already, Iballa, ended the competition year on the highest of highs as she signed off with three event victories out of three.



Words from the newly crowned 2012 PWA Wave World Champion, Iballa Moreno:



“First off all I would like to thank all of you for coming to watch this incredible day for me. It’s been really hard but I hope you all enjoyed it. It’s been great to be back in Sylt and I hope to see you again next year.”
