The heats got underway on Sunday with light NW winds bringing freezing conditions to the lake. We managed to complete one ladder leaving 32 riders still to battle it out for the title. Unfortunately the wind dropped by lunchtime and although we have been on stand by, no more heats have been run.
This is a really fun event combining one of the biggest party weeks in Austria with the Surf World Cup. The sun came out yesterday, changing the temperature dramatically and Andy Chambers, Tine Slabe, Tom Hartmann, Kai Lenny and myself entertained the crowds on the surf across the pool competition.
Hopefully we can complete at least one full round of competition by the end of the week. The UK\’s Andy Chambers (aka Bubble) takes on Cheo and I have Nick Warmuth to beat to break into the top 16.
