Laure Treboux, fifth placed woman in Pozo and hot tip to cause an upset in the women’s fleet in Tenerife posts this report from Gran Canaria.
We’ve just had a mad week in Pozo. The first PWA wave event of the year, the “Wind and Waves Festival 2012”, was a massive success. The wind was stronger than I’ve ever seen it so the action was simply insane, and the event was well put together, with lots of windsurfing promotion going on (like the 400 kids who came over form different schools to discover windsurfing) and side activities, music, etc.
Daida and Iballa Moreno did a great job with organizing it, big up to you two girls!
The comp started pretty well for me, with a 4th place in the single elimination. The conditions were hard core though – I couldn’t hold onto my 3.0, apparently it was gusting over 60 knots – and I was struggling to show what I can do. In the double elimination I lost against Steffi Wahl and ended up 5th.
