Yentel Caers has taken out the 2019 Costa Brava Pro, at Las Dunas, in San Pere Pescador, in Spain.

The second edition of the freestyle windsurfing event used two competitive formats.

In the first days, both categories - pro and junior - completed the early elimination rounds in the tow-in format, with riders being pulled by a jet sky and performing tricks in front of the beach and the crowd.

For the remaining days, the northern wind showed its power and allowed the organization to complete two additional elimination rounds.

Belgian freestyler Yentel Caers took the top honors after defeating Jacopo Testa in an epic final.

Caers was able to land a pasko, bongka, shifty and ponch to count on the way out and a skopu, double culo, burner funnel, skopu, and spock culo coming in.

"What a week! I'm super happy. I still can't believe what amazing conditions we had and that I could win the single and double eliminations," expressed Yentel Caers.

Some junior athletes participated in the pro division, but they have also competed against each other. Lennart Neubauer won the Under 18 category followed by Eugenio Marconi and Nil Bacon.

The second event of the European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) attracted all sorts of people interested in nature, camping and boardsports.

Spectators were also greeted with several water and sliding activities, including paddleboarding with dogs and SUP yoga clinics, skimboarding, skateboarding, and tarp surfing.

The Costa Brava Pro will likely return in 2020.
