Philip Köster and Daida Moreno are the King and Queen of Pozo Izquierdo. The 2015 Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival had high winds and perfect waves.

After pulling the finest triple forward attempt ever in professional windsurfing, Köster successfully defend his single elimination victory in the doubles' final.

The German encountered an in-form Victor Fernandez in the decisive heat, but Köster kept his composure and launched into an absolutely brilliant planing double forward, before stomping an ankle-dry pushloop forward. A few moments later, he combined a sick air shaka off the lip with vert, powerful frontside snaps.

"I'm super stoked to win again today.It's been an amazing event with great conditions and I always enjoy competing here. The final was very tough with Victor, who had been on fire. I was nervous before the final, but thankfully things went my way, and I'm very happy to win it," explained Philip Köster.

In the Women's final, the Moreno sisters went head-to-head for the coveted title. However, as Daida landed a massive stalled forward and a one-handed backloop, it was clear who would win the event.

"I'm really stoked, this is a really special place for me, even though people might think I'm winning all the time. For me, it's just the proof that I push really hard and my training and all my hours on the water have paid off. This year is also really special to me because I finished university, and now I'll have much more time for training," added Daida.
