Daida Ruana Moreno: one-handed backloop

Philip Köster and Daida Ruano Moreno have taken out the Super Sessions of the PWA Pozo World Cup 2013. The wind deserted the shores of Pozo for the week, with neither the Men's or the Women's competitions even beginning.

Mother Nature decided that the 25th anniversary of the PWA Pozo World Cup would be celebrated in a different way. Let's say, no wind for the sport of windsurfing.

Fortunately, the final day of the event did see the return of the wind, combined with a selection of sporadic waves, which enabled both a super session to be held and the action was nothing short of exceptional.

In the Men's division, Philip Köster proved exactly why he is number one in the world. The nineteen-year-old started off the final in emphatic fashion as he exploded into one of his trademark, bolt upright double forwards, before later adding a quite exquisite - yet ridiculous - no-handed backloop to seal his place at the top of the fleet.

Fernandez and Campello completed the podium positions in second and third place respectively, with Browne being forced to settle for fourth place. The only real separating point between them was the cleanness of their landings on their double forwards.

In the Women's final, Daida Ruano Moreno proved why she has so often dominated Pozo through the years with an accomplished display in the super session final.

The multiple times world champion showed off her repertoire of moves, which ranged from brilliant tabletop forwards to one-handed backloops. Iballa Ruano Moreno didn't finished far behind, but this time around the reigning PWA Wave World Champion had to settle for second place.

On November 26, 2018, the World Surf League (WSL) suspended the iconic Peahi Challenge, in Maui. Why? There was too much wind, and the conditions were too gnarly for big wave surfing.
