Levi Siver Wins the AWT’s Quatro Desert Showdown

[ 1 ] Augustus 6, 2012 |


On day five of the 2012 Vier Desert Showdown the best swell showed up for the week long event, and head judge Matt Pritchard made the call to send out the pros. Despite the light wind conditions they put on a spectacular show picking off logo high set waves at the Punta San Carlos point and riding the 6-to-12 bottom-turn waves through the Chili Bowl and beyond. As you can see by the results below, it was a stacked pro fleet and the long heats (that were extended with each round from 20 minutes to 24-minute semi-finals to a 30-minute final) dit moontlik gemaak het vir alle ruiters paar keuse stel golwe te vind.

Die finale afgekom na aksiebelaaide wedstryd tussen Levi Siver, Camille Juban, Morgan Noireaux en Bernd Roediger. Noireaux en Roediger geseil beter, maar die twee ruiters wat hul golf kennis gebruik om die beste branders te kry was Siver en Juban. Wanneer die finale horing geblaas debatte begin op die strand oor wie gewen het? Wat sou die beoordelaars besluit? Die wenner is aangekondig dat die nag agter die bar by die SoloSports kamp… Levi Siver! Met voorwaardes kwynende effens op die laaste dag en net genoeg tyd om te kry deur middel van 'n paar rondtes van die pro dubbel uitskakeling, die finale uitslag van die enkele uitskakeling gehandhaaf gee Siver sy derde AWT titel van die seisoen!

Dag ses voorsien ideale omstandighede die dubbele uitskakeling hakies te hardloop vir beide die amateurs Meesters. Op die Amateur kant van die ruiter van die dag was die Jordaan Reid, wat al die pad gesukkel om terug van 'n eerste rondte verlies in die enkele uitskakeling te vaar die maksimum aantal verhit moontlik, en ontmoet met Chris Freeman in die finale. Reid seil baie goed in die eindstryd, maar Freeman het een van sy beste golwe van die hele kompetisie om hom die titel te eis. Met 25 toetreders, die Amateur vloot is nie net gepak met talent, maar dit was die grootste van die kompetisie, so Geluk aan al hierdie matrose vir die komende so 'n lang afstand vir 'n epiese week van die kompetisie en pret in die golwe van Punta San Carlos. The rider of the day on the Masters side proved to be MacRae Wylde, who put on quite a show defeating the single elimination winner Andrew Cunningham twice to claim the crown. After the bracket was run, this fleet was broken down by age allowing Cunningham to still win the title in the Grand Masters division.
Due to the size of the Women and Youth divisions both ran single heats throughout the week with each counting toward the final result. Maui’s Casey Rehrer proved to be the class of the Youth division but Fiona Wylde, Ian Stokes and Alex McKirgan all improved quickly as the event progressed. Hood River’s Fiona Wylde put on a dominating performance winning the women’s title over Katie McAnena, Sam Bittner and Lindsay Vitort. Wylde had quite a Desert Showdown as she also finished second in the Youth and 11th in the Amateurs.

It was a great week hosted by SoloSports Adventure Holidays in Punta San Carlos, Lae, Mexiko. Thanks to everyone—hosts, sponsors, competitors, staff, and organizer Sam Bittner—for making this event almost twice as big as it was last year. Looking forward to seeing everyone down in Baja again next year!
