After the pro super session it was onto the second session for the other fleets. The amateurs, masters and women took to the water to showcase their skills and some big forwards, flakas and more were on show. All of the riders put on an impressive display, but it was Justyna Sniady that secured the win by boosting a massive forward in the opening minutes of the heat. Ben Page, Tris Levie and Will Barrett all came close but couldn't quite match Justyna's style this time.
We're now on hold and unfortunately the wind is set to drop a little mid-morning meaning it could a freeride kinda day from now on. But, we're still holding out for better conditions tomorrow... it could be another early start!
The conditions here in Rhosneigr aren't quite playing ball, but that didn't stop most of he sailors from hitting the water and showing what could be done. This morning's action kicked off early with a pro expression session. It was Adam Lewis that took the win with a combination of freestyle/wave moves on the very small waves. Ben Proffitt followed up in second, James Cox in third and Mark Hosegood in fourth. Despite the small waves and cross-onshore wind these top boys were still managing to get forwards, close to backloops, e-sliders, ponches and more were on show.
It's now onto one more expression session for the other fleets, with the potential of further competition later today. Again, we have our fingers crossed but as it stands today we're not sure on the chances.
A very early and good morning from Rhosneigr on day four of the BWA Wales competition. After a frustrating friday of waiting for the conditions to improve it's been a cold and early start to proceedings today. Light winds but slightly bigger waves than yesterday were forecast for this morning, so the first announcement was scheduled for 6am.
The wind was there and there were some small sets coming through that could be enough for competition to be held. This spurred the likes of Proffitt, Lewis and Cox to hit the water, testing to see if we can get underway.
So, right now it's a waiting game as it doesn't obviously look like the all-time conditions we were hoping for, but it might be good enough to compete. Decisions will be made shortly so stay tuned!
