Aaron Hadlow and Gisela Pulido have emerged victorious in the Pringles Kitesurf World Cup 2015, at St. Peter-Ording, in Germany.

The 30-knot winds pushed freestyle kiteboarders to their limits, in the final day of competition. The Men's ultimate clash had a classic matchup: Aaron Hadlow versus Liam Whaley.

Because they were both overpowered on seven-meter kites, they couldn't land double passes. However, Hadlow nailed a Front Blind Mobe and Back Mobe 5, and Whaley completed a Double Heart Attack and Crow Mobe 5, but his S-Mobe was ruled out of the competition box.

"Ruben Lenten you gave me strength today; this one is for you! " shouted Hadlow, after winning the German final. "He is the last person that deserves something like this, but we all know if anybody can beat this, then it is him!"

On the women's side, Gisela Pulido and Annelous Lammerts were set for the final. The Dutch had a great heat, but Pulido was on fire and landed a bag full of tricks including an S-Mobe, Hinterberger Mobe and Heart Attack to claim her first event of the season.
