The 9th annual Soul Wave contest ended today, after having the best conditions in the history of the event!
Friday we had a second elimination in fantastic sideoff shore conditions. In this elimination I made it to the semi finals, but I was basically 3 seconds from victory, as that was the time after the heat ended that I got the one counting jump in! Had I been able to find the ramp for my back loop just a few seconds earlier, I would have made it to the finals and gotten the overall victory! Hurts, but C'est la vie! The fifth place in the second series was however still enough to hold on to second place overall.
Here are the results from Soulwave:
1. Andy Wolf 2. Lars Petersen 2. Lars Gobich 4. Mads Bjoenaa 5. Klaas Voget
Next week there is a another chance for international top level competition as the World Cup in Sylt Germany gets on the way.
All the best from Klitmoeller
