With the wind forecast from last year i and many other could not dream of getting similar or even better condition's.
What we got was insane, waves who were mast or more high...
Like each year I been working for my dad the 2 weeks before the event till the Saturday, as that job have to be done between the dates so my energie was not upper level a long drive to klimoller. But i need the money to do the events!!!
So i was quit happy i was in the second round and got one more day off rest.
That Tuesday we stood up 6 oçlock to prepare everything to my heat against Camile..
I rigt my 4.0 and 4.2 and started my heat with my 4.0 in the hardcore big waves.
While i stept up my board and sheat in my mast straight broke down. I guess that is clearly a one time garanty one..
So with the help off the guyss at the beach i took off on my 4.2 and plain out.
Sundely the wind dropt and i was standing there for a half minute between mast high waves.
Luckly it pick up again were i catch up a nice big wave and road it to the beach.
While going out i got catch by some big white water and lucky i kept my gear with me.
Made my jumps and got another wave and mannish to pass the heat.
Next heat against Phillip K, welll eachy one...
Opend my heat with a big big backloop all the way in the back on a mast high wave only with the landing i fully exploded. Later with another attempt i made it.
My idea was to beat Phillip was the go for the big waves, done that only at the second wave i got eaten by this mast high wave and had to swim for for 10minute after my kit.
Lucky enouff the safety Jetski was drinking a coffea and by the time he was with me i was 1km down wind and de-rigt my gear and got a very exciting drive back through the big waves!!!
Because we started that morning early i could started later that day my double elemination heat against Phill H. I knew we would be similare riders and try to go big but also save to not get washed or so.. Made a good high bacloop and a super high tweaked Pushlooop and had 5 minute to find my second wave. Only each wave what i catch up didn't bild up like i wanted to beand i end up catch a wave in the last second's. Here i knew the wave would really build up later and made a wickel (backside frontside turn)to claim the wavein the 3sec before the red flag. So later that wave i done what i need to do what was a backside 360 straight into a cutback off the lip. I knew this would be enouff to claim the heat..
At the beach i was really seprised i didn't pass the heat and next that they didn't score that las wave they even mist that tweaked push because they were really foccused on Phil and Jamie H who got the same sail sponsor!!!!!
So once again i feel quit frustrated....
In the last wave i brushed my big toe so i can't even sail in the days now...
I hope Sylt will bring some conditions.. Time will tell
