Welcome back and day 3 highlights, videos and images are coming in from PWA Pozo.
First is this gallery from World of Windsurf. 100\’s of epic shots, take a scan through there between heats (if you are watching on the live stream). Another selection of fine images can be found on the official PWA website from none other than John Carter, check it out.
Talking of the PWA, there is yet another epic report online, this time from day 3. The conditions were firing and the action was unreal, even head judge Duncan Coombes admitted that he had never seen anything quite like it! With just the final of the single elimination to go, it looks like today will open with a bang! Rolling swells and strong winds will rage the shores of Pozo as two of the finest wave talents in the World go head to head! Tune in to the live stream here.
Day 3 highlights video for you now, including some bonus interviews with Dany Bruch, Dario Ojeda and Iballa Moreno.
Talking of bonus interviews, we\’ve got another 5 minute wonder below, also with Iballa as she talks about her day.
Further videos come from continentseven.com who caught up with head judge Duncan Coombes again for his day 3 round up and they also have the full womesn single elimination. cHeck them both out below.
Five minutes with Iballa
Yesterday Iballa Moreno won the single elimination of the women\’s competition, being the first woman to beat her sister Daida in a very long time! Boardseeker caught five minutes with the lady herself…
BS: What equipment were you using?
IM: I went out two minutes before final on 3.3 but I felt too over powered. So I went for the 3.0 Blade, which was a new sail that I never tried before, but it was very good.
BS: Did you have a plan for the final?
IM: I was thinking to be in the final and secure some moves, trying to find some ramps and if I was comfortable to try some bigger moves…
BS: It was close until the 360 at the end, was it a plan to make that move or did it just happen?
IM: My last wave made a bit of a difference on the final results….I was pretty happy to land the wave 360 and combine with some good turns! Daida is sailing insane so I still have to recover for the double elimination and then see how it goes!
As the world\’s media is focused on the PWA there is little in the way of other news, however this cracker from RRD/Simmer rider Justin Denel shows that there is still plenty going on.
On to Patrik/Loft slalom sailor now. This time featuring in waves, Ludo Jossin shows his talents don\’t just lie in going mach 10…
Talking of Patrik, the guys in the UK have set up their official facebook page. A fountain of cool images, videos and up to date rider info be sure to head over and hit the \’LIKE\’ button to keep up to date. Also if you fancy trying out the fresh new boards that have arrived in the UK then head down to the OTC this weekend where Jim from Pura Vida Boardriders will be teaming up with the OTC for a mighty weekend of windsurfing, BBQ\’s and perhaps the odd beer. More details here.
Looks like the finals are about to start, we\’ll be back later with more news, including rider updates from elsewhere and more exciting video footage.
