PWA Tenerife World Cup - Twists and turns as winners are revealed

The fifth day of the Dunkerbeck-Eyewear Siam Park Tenerife PWA World Cup saw an abundance of drama with plenty of twists and turns in both the men’s and women’s divisions. Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) claimed his first victory of the year after halting a rampaging Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) in the super final as he took his sailing to another gear.

Meanwhile, Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), produced a magnificent performance to defeat her twin sister - Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) - not once, but twice to wrestle the event victory from the grasp of Iballa to make it two event victories out of two for 2014.

Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / North / MFC) won his opening two heats today against Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Simmer / MFC) and Jaeger Stone (SSD / Severne) with his double forwards proving the difference in both heats. It then looked like the Spaniard would be lining up in the winners final against Philip Köster after initially accumulating more points than Thomas Traversa in heat 34 - however an interference on one of Traversa’s waves saw Fernandez penalised with his highest wave score being deducted, which resulted in the Frenchman progressing.

Thomas Traversa excelled in the winners’ final to force a super final against Philip Köster. In heat 35, TT was at his brilliant best as he landed a radical double forward and a huge stalled tabletop forward, before unleashing on the waves with dynamic, vertical turns in the pocket of the wave.

Having been defeated in the previous heat the pressure was on Köster to find another gear in order to hold onto his single elimination crown, and that’s exactly what the twenty year old managed to do right from the word go as he rotated through a trademark, ankle-dry double forward. With his jump in the bag Köster now had the rest of the heat to work on his waves and he delivered his best wave of the entire contest - consisting of a powerful gouging turn, straight a radical goiter before finishing off with a fluid reverse to earn 8.125 points. Traversa sailed another excellent heat as he linked more superb waves together, but unlike the previous heat he wasn’t able to find a double forward again as Köster held onto to take his first event victory since this time last year in Tenerife.

Philip Köster back on top of the prestigious podium: 'I didn’t land my double planing, but it was a good one and a solid start to the heat, I also got my best wave of the contest in the super final so I was super happy. It feels great to win again and I’m super stoked.'

Just as in the men’s, the women’s double elimination required a super final to decide the champion of the 2014 Dunkerbeck-Eyewear Siam Park Tenerife PWA World Cup, after Daida Moreno comprehensively beat Iballa Moreno in the winners’ final, with Iballa looking a little out of sorts. Take nothing away from Daida though as she landed an absolutely amazing tabletop forward and delivered vertical, powerful snaps to force the decider

In the super final Daida Moreno continued to shine as she landed a perfect one-handed backloop to move into a commanding position, whilst transferring the pressure onto Iballa. However, for once Iballa stuttered as she failed to improve upon her opening tabletop forward. Iballa had her chances, but couldn’t quite hold onto a big backloop which would have brought her back into contention. At this point though the chance had gone as Daida nailed the final nail into the coffin with a big, vertical, frontside hack to complete a stunning comeback as she claimed back-to-back event victories in 2014.

Daida Moreno makes it two out of two: 'Today has been amazing for me. I had a lot of fun sailing and I felt great out there. The wind was good, the waves were good and I just went with the flow, trying to have fun and forget about the nerves. I was pretty calm - I used the tactic of trying to make sure I got a jump in the bag at the beginning. After I got my jump done I just focused on my wave riding. Before the final I changed up, which I’m really happy about because it let me go more vertical in my turns. I love this spot and I think I proved myself as a wave rider as well. I’m super happy to win here again.'

Meanwhile, Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Mystic / Chris Benz / Maui Ultra Fins) continued her storming comeback in the double elimination as she won a further two heats, meaning the lady from Aruba won a total of seven consecutive heats by defeating Steffi Wahl (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg) and Amanda Beenen (Tabou / GA Sails). Offringa shone in the air and visibly improved with each heat on the wave and has now alerted her rivals as a significant threat for the future.
