Alex Pastor: big in Dakhla

Alex Pastor and Karolina Winkowska have conquered the Dakhla PKRA 2013, in the waters of Morocco.


The last days of competition saw the double elimination heats get underway with the wind slowly building to 15-20 knots, slightly gusty but still very good.

The Men's final heat was between Marc Jacobs and Alex Pastor, who was defending his victory in the single elimination. Pastor was on right from the start and dominated the whole heat with 5 scores about 7 and a total of 37.44.

In the first Women's final between Winkowska and Pulido, both girls were kiting  extremely well going for very powerful tricks. Gisela landed a loop 3, a 313 and blind judge, Karolina was getting her tricks in, but her execution was not on.

After Gisela won the first final another heat had to run. The second final Karolina was back to her form, landing many great tricks: BJ3 6.17, Slim 6.57 and a KGB of 6.97.

Gisela had a good 315 for 6.37 and Slim 6.47, but it was not enough.  Karolina won her fourth consecutive event.
