It was good to see PWA come back to Pozo after 3 year break due to Covid. It was even better to see Philip Koster back on top of the podium after two eliminations in very challenging conditions. I was stoked to be there and support him through that.
I did lend a helping hand to a few of my students too. It was good to see them all back in action fighting despite occasional very light wind and small waves, which is not what we are used to seeing in Pozo.
Justyna Sniady secured 4th in the single elimination missing out on the final by a small margin. She didn't find waves in the double and is currently sitting in 5th place overall and we continue to train hard and hope for a bit more luck with the waves next time.
Alexia Kiefer sailed nice in the Open category coming 8th. She also secured 1st place in the Under 20 category.
Carlos Kiefer had a bit of bad luck in his heat, but showed amazing level and secured a podium place coming 3rd in the Juniors!
Sol Degrieck did amazing! At just 12 years old she competed for the first time in the Open Category coming 5th in the single elimination after taking out Lina Erpenstein and scoring the highest wave ride of the day! She also came second in Under 17 category. Big congratulations.
