PWA Freestyle Fuerteventura - 2nd!
I made it again! Managed to sail all the finals of all 4 eliminations and take the 2nd place at the latest PWA freestyle event that took place at Sotavento, Fuerteventura.
It's been a nerve wracking week. The wind kept switching on and off to start with, making it hard to stay focused. I was on 4.5 for the first few days, which is light for Fuerteventura, then we ended the week with proper Fuerte conditions, 3.7 stacked.
I needed a bit of time to switch my brain back to freestyle after 2 months of wave sailing, but after a couple of dodgy heats on the first day, I got back into it and sailed some really good ones.
The whole event was a lot of fun, I always love catching up with the whole freestyle crew and a lot of friends who I hadn't seen in a while.
I would like to say a special thank you to Aly Sabri (www.alysabri.com) for helping me prepare for the tour again this year, it's been great working together, I learnt so much.
Another massive thank you goes to Simon for the constant support and for putting up with my nerves and moods during the last few events!
I'm back in Tenerife for a few days now, wind and waves are here with us too, then back to Switzerland in a couple of days. Looking forward to spending some time there with family and mates, it's been a while...
