AWT Quatro Desert Showdown day 1
by Russ Faurot on 30 Jul 2013
Everyone has made it to Punta San Carlos for the 2013 AWT Quatro Desert Showdown and we are anticipating an amazing event. Day one showed promise with some decent sets rolling through but with the forecast only looking better, head judge Keith Teboul decided to give everyone a day for warming up to the conditions… and everyone took advantage.
The competition brackets have been drawn up using a brand new 'second chance' bracket system, giving competitors a chance to lose in their first heat and still come back in a 'second chance' round and make it back into the competition. This format really allows for competitors to take more risks early in the competition, as they can still win their way back into the mix if their risky big moves don’t work out. This is what the AWT is all about…pushing the limits of wavesailing!
