The world's best wave windsurfers were not able to showcase their talent in the Danish waves of Cold Hawaii because Mother Nature didn't deliver the standard required to kick off the contest.

After Pozo Izquierdo, and El Medano, competitors were looking forward to getting extreme conditions in the surf spots around Klitmoller, but the North Sea decided to stay quiet for a very long week.

The organization tried to run as many heats as possible but, in the end, all they could do was put up a tow-in competition. Dieter Van der Eyken completed a one-handed burner 360 and took the victory over Ricardo Campello.

"I am pretty stoked to win the tow-in today! Sadly enough, it also means there is no result in this event, but Sylt is just around the corner!" said Van der Eyken, who is currently 16th the overall rankings.

With Victor Fernandez on top the leaderboard, the 2016 PWA Wave World Tour travels to Germany for the Mercedez-Benz World Cup Sylt, which runs from September 30th through October 9th.
