- 10 October 2009 | Windsurfing
We waited over a year for the conditions that prevailed on Saturday, October 3rd, 2009. Big waves and 3-40 knot wind made for an epic day out on the water for the 37 competitors.
The first heat (4 people in a heat) began at 11:15am. The strong gusts of wind created a challenge for landing jumps. Throughout the day, the competitors get more used to these extreme conditions and the heats continue to get more spectacular!
The semi-finals were phenomenal with competitors pulling out huge backloops, table forwards, pushloops, high jumps and overall great wave riding.
The finals proved difficult with the winds picking up and blowing even stronger and the competitors obviously tired from the elimination series. But the finalists fought hard to deliver the winners at the end of the day!
