On the opening day of the 2015 PWA World Tour in Leucate, France, Gollito Estredo rocked the crowds to claim victory in the tow-in qualifications. Whilst the wind didn’t show the PWA were not halted in their attempts to please the growing crowds and swiftly signed up a number of the competitors to provide some high-octane close up action.
There were all the thrills and spills, including huge moves in the light winds and small waves, not least the astonishing height of Tonky Frans who launched into an air skopu that seemed to defy the laws of gravity, unfortunately becoming a little stuck up on the landing it was a later move that proved fruitful for him.
Other excitement saw Adam Sims open up his campaign with burner 720 which was very much on the beach, again the conditions were proving tricky and Sims also stuck a later move to see him through to the finals towards the end of this week.
One last highlight saw Bonaireian Flo Weger come flying into the beach only to have his mast snap on him at the moment of take off, as a result he spun through the move with the mast flapping behind.
