Fuerteventura PWA Slalom is into the 4th day and whilst Antoine seems to have everything under control at the front, the fight behind him is intensifying. Finian holds 2nd position by just 0.7 points ahead of Cyril, whilst Bjorn closed the gap with a win in the last final. 2 more days to go, so its all to play for. Read the PWA report from yesterday, check out the results, follow the ticker, watch the Boardseeker special from yesterday and watch out for the exclusive Boardseeker video tonight. (We may even have a sneak preview of the top freestylers practicing from the upcoming freestyle.)
Philip Koster has won the Wave/Freestyle section of the German Championships. Taking place in Sylt, they had some classic bump and jump “Sylt style”.In the slalom it was Bernd Flessner who once again took the win. He probably has more German titles than Bjorn has world ones!
Prehaps the most impressive however was Andre Paskowski. He hit the water for the first time in ages after 9 weeks of chemo, and took 3rd place. Massive well done Andre.
