Pwa Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura was crazy!
Having 9 completed eliminations in up to 43 knots it was the most extreme and sick event I ever competed in. In most heats I was overpowered with my Severne Sails REFLEX 5.6 and Starboard iSonic Slim 86L!
I passed most first heats of the 8 eliminations but unfortunately it was not going as I would have wanted. And than, on the last day, I was having a great heat (I was in 3th place) but lost my fin which causing me to crash and I was not able to finish the race...... I still cannot believe how this could happen since I check all my gear every day. Lesson learned: Double check!!!!!!!
So all in all not such a good event for me but I had a great time racing in stormy winds and I learned a lot.
The PWA Worldtour and Rene Egli organization and whole crew did a awesome job with the event so big and extreme, huge thanks to them for that!
Looking forward to the next PWA Slalom event in Hvide Sande in Denmark. I really want to show that I can do better!
