2009 Freestyle Pro Kids World 2009

The sixth and last day of competition at the Junior and Youth Freestyle Worlds in Porto Pollo/Palau, Sardinia Italy had very good wind conditions since mid-morning when wind blows more than 25 knots. Just after for many hours a range between 30 and 25 knots allowed a fantastic day of racing.  In this excellent situation, Junior under 17 and Youth under 20 made their single, whose results will be added to the already raced double in order to decree the championship winners.

In Junior Under 17 division the four best have been Matteo Romeo ITA 493 vs. the Dutch Nick Van Ingen NED 122 and Bonaire's competitor Youp Schmit NB 12 vs the other Dutch Rick Hendrusch NED 120. Youp third and Romeo fourth. The final between the two Nick and Rick, usual in The Netherlands, ended with Rick as winner.

In Youth Under 20 division, Belgian Dieter Van der Eyken BEL 35 and Estonian Christofer Kalk EST 141 confirmed one time again in the top. But the Italian challengers changed than the previous double. Matteo Testa ITA 2610 and Marco Vinante ITA 205 reached the top. Testa finished as fourth, Kalk as third. No story in the final where Van der Eyken, surely the best competitor in the championship, easily won, showing to the people on the beach a very good number of tricks.

Of course Dieter Van der Eyken BEL 35 won the Youth under 20 World title, a worthy prize for a very able competitor and a very nice guy. Silver medal for the Italian Mattia Fabrizi ITA 991  and third place for Vittorio Mazzocca Gamba ITA 52.

Under 17 junior World Champioship has been won by the Dutch Rick Jendrusch NED 120, followed by the Italian Matteo Romeo ITA 493 and the other Dutch Nick Van Ingen NED 122.

First in Starboard Pro Kids Worlds under 15 is the representative of Bonaire Youp Schmit NB 12, second Italian Francesco Cappuzzo ITA 333 and third the very young kid from Aruba Steven Max Lageveen ARU 888. Obviously Steven Max is the best under 12 for the international meeting, where silver is the Russian living in Egypt Kostantin Smirnov RUS 111 and bronze Italian girl Alice Cappuzzo ITA 00.

At the end of this wonderful week of sport and friendship, we thank very much all institutions and volunteers that have hard worked for a successful event, without their support and job such events cannot be scheduled. Our most important thanks to Comune di Palau, Consorzio Operatori Turistici Orsus and the hosting sailing club Sporting Club Sardinia.
