Kevin Pritchard prende Single Elimination presso Goya Windsurfing Festival
Ancora una volta le condizioni si presentò per due giorni a Waddell Beach Park per la AWT Santa Cruz Goya Windsurfing Festival. La dimensione gonfiano prese un po 'dal giorno precedente e il vento riempito bene di finire tutti divisione singole eliminazioni e quindi ottenere una buona fetta della doppia fatto così. Diamo un'occhiata a che punto siamo.


PRO - Eliminazione singola Semifinali
Il primo corso ha ottenuto semifinale Pro con il campione in carica Levi Siver contro Bernd Roediger, Morgan Noireaux e Kai Katchadourian. Un calore impilati di sicuro. Siver ha trovato alcune onde carnose primi atterraggio belle antenne e bloccato un grande con una sola mano Loop Back garantire il suo posto in finale. Kai Katchadourian navigato solidamente e coerentemente con strappo giostre e grandi si torna, ma non è stato sufficiente a metterlo attraverso. La battaglia per quel secondo posto in finale tra Roediger e Noireaux stato intenso. Questi ragazzi hanno avuto innumerevoli battaglie nel corso degli ultimi tre anni e questo era altrettanto intenso. Entrambi atterrato enormi Indietro Loops ad una mano e giostre onda eleganti ... ma alla fine i giudici hanno dato la decisione di Roediger. Il più grande allegria del calore è arrivato alla fine molto con Siver atterraggio un'onda enorme 360 ma poi sempre inghiottito dal muraglione di acque bianche.

L'altra sega semifinale 2013 campione complessivo AWT contro Kevin Pritchard, Marcilio "Brawzinho" Browne e Bryan Metcalf Perez. Brown took the heat sticking his third Double Forward of the comp (that makes him 3 per 3 up to this point) and some incredible new-school wave rides. Metcalf Perez and Juban sailed well but just couldn’t match Kevin Pritchard’s smooth yet aggressive style. The Pritch is on a roll!


PRO – Single Elimination Final
The heat began with Browne speeding out looking for his Double Forward. He found his ramp, but something went wrong and he crashed for the first time on a Double in the contest. What would this mean for the rest of the heat? Roediger and Siver soon racked up their one-handed Back Loops and solid wave rides. Browne looked a little off his game crashing on a Backside 360 to start a big wave…but this is what the AWT is all about—going for big moves at the start of big waves. Halfway through the 16-minute heat Pritchard took the lead landing a huge one-footed Back Loop and then a super-highspeed Wave360 on his ride. Suddenly Browne found his groove landing a giant one-footed Back Loop of his own and a stylish Taka at the critical section of a big wave. The action was intense and no one knew who would win.

Following the heat at the awards AWT Director Sam Bittner announced the result… Kevin Pritchard took the final narrowly ahead of Browne, followed by Siver and Roediger. Congrats to all.


WOMEN – Final
Some big set waves were rolling through for the women’s final with defending champ Ingrid Larouche taking on Sarah Delaunay, Fiona Wylde and Miho Tanaka. Delaunay’s came all the way to Santa Cruz from New Caledonia and showed very impressive riding style on some big waves…this girl really charges. Miho Tanaka and Fiona Wylde. In the end Ingrid Larouche took the heat linking countless impressive turns on the biggest waves.


The Amateur semi-finals kicked off with Jerry McKay sailing an incredible heat to advance along with Brett Greene to the final. McKay and Greene seemed to find the nicest set waves and did the most with them. The other semi saw Casey Rehrer’s slashy style and Marc Bitoun’s powerful riding propel them into the final.
The first semi-final of the Masters division saw Dana Miller and Ferdinando Loffreda slash their way past their opponents. The other side saw Brian Caserio and Gerritt Rutgers loop and ride their way on the best set waves into the final. It looked like Caserio had a plan for the final to get his Forward Loop in early and then ride his way to victory…and it worked. Caserio took the final ahead of Loffreda, Miller and Rutgers.
