Sail-World.com : AWT Quatro Desert Showdown at Punta San Carlos
AWT Quatro Desert Showdown at Punta San Carlos

'AWT Quatro Desert Showdown at Punta San Carlos, Baja'    Si Crowther / AWT

The week started with an incredible day of action seeing Morgan Noireaux win his first AWT pro title and Fiona Wylde her first women’s crown. Day two of the AWT Quatro Desert Showdown saw the wind take a break but with the waves staying around no one was disappointed. Day three once again had little wind but all competitors stayed busy on the water either surfing or SUPing. SoloSports always delivers for keeping smiles on the faces of everyone visiting Punta San Carlos, Baja.

Day four saw the wind return just enough to start the youth and amateur divisions. Heats were set for 20-minutes allowing for all competitors to score plenty of waves. The youth heat saw and epic battle between 16-year-old Alex McKirgan and 14-year-old Itai Kafri. Both caught tons of amazing rides but Alex’s more powerful style with complete roundhouse turns was slightly favored by the judges of Itai’s high-speed skatey style.

The amateurs got underway but unfortunately after five heats had to be abandoned due to dwindling wind conditions. Standout riders of these first heats included Vickie Abbott, Attila Tivadar, Joey Sanchez, Andrew Cunningham and Yossy Solomon (who scored the highest scoring wave of the amateurs so far). Despite the conditions not being contestable riders still hit the water ripping the waves that were actually picking up in size, so we are very optimistic about conditions for tomorrow. Stay tuned!
