The Freestyle PWA World Tour is now over. The last event in Fuerteventura was a great one with awesome conditions. Everyone was on fire. The competition didn't start very well for me but got better and better during the week and I ended up with a 3rd place, which means I'm now 3rd overall for 2008 in Freestyle.

The 2008 PWA freestyle and wave competition in Pozo, Gran Canaria, was a bit of a hectic event for me!
The conditions were crazy the whole time, with winds reaching 50 knots. We had some nice waves and the action was just unbelievable. Ricardo trying triple forward loops, Victor, Jonas, Philip Koster and all the guys going absolutely MASSIVE. The slalom was awesome to watch too, and the women freestyle was more like trying to survive than anything else.
On the 2nd day I had a nasty crash: flaka into the boom on my 3.0 completely overpowered. I hit my throat and neck really bad and finished my day at hospital. Luckily the boom broke so it slowed down the impact a bit. A BIG THANK YOU to Nayra for staying with me all day and being so helpfull!
I could keep on competing the next days but I probably lost some confidence and didn't sail well. I finished 4th in freestyle and 9th in waves.
Sarah Quita won the freestyle, Daida and Victor Fernandez won the waves and Antoin Albeau the slalom. For more details, pictures and videos from the event check out www.pwaworldtour.com
We're now in Fuerteventura for the next freestyle event which starts on the 24th of July. The conditions have been great so far, I love sailing here, and everyone is on fire!
