Moving in to day 3 of the SOSH Freestyle cup the official report for day 2 has now reached us including some nice action shots. Fingers crossed for wind so an official result can be announced towards the end of the event, over to the organisers for the full low down.

A quiet morning on the second day of the 2013 IFCA Freestyle Junior World Championship @ Sosh Freestyle Cup.
The skippers meeting was held during lunch time and the tow-in was scheduled for the afternoon. The kids got the day of because of the lack of wind. They had the opportunity to go kayaking or stand up paddle boarding and had some fun playing on the water.
At 14:00 a spectacular tow-in show started with guest pro riders; Nicolas Akgazciyan (Montpellier), Jordan Ema (Toulouse), Julien Mas (Grenoble) and Mattia Fabrici (Italy)
The enthusiastic audience helped out with ranking the moves performed by the riders such as burners, air funnels and kulo’s.
The Life stream gang and the tv crew were on the beach and in boats, while a small crowd gathered on the beach to watch the action.
