The 2008 PWA Surf World Cup Podersdorf - Day One

The heavy hitters of freestyle congregate on the shores of Neusiedler See Lake for day one of the 2008 PWA Freestyle World Tour

Day one of the 2008 PWA Surf World Cup has been greeted with warm weather and light winds, giving a casual start for the 48 strong freestyle fleet. With registration completed by 11 o'clock, riders were left to patiently wait on the hourly competition status updates to see if competition would commence.

The afternoons wait was broken up with an energetic capoeira display from Brazil’s Danilo Da Silva (Fanatic, North Sails). Unfortunately, it failed to summon the wind and head judge Duncan Coombs was forced to call an end to day one of competition at 5pm.

Waiting for wind are; last years Freestyle World Champion Marcilio Browne (Mistral, Gaastra), recent EFPT event winner Normen Gunzlein (JP, Neil Pryde), new school sensations Gollito Estredo (Fanatic, North) and Kiri Thode (Starboard, Gaastra), along side a list that reads like the who’s who of freestyle windsurfing.

The skippers meeting has been set for 9.00am tomorrow, leaving the sailors to relax at the events welcome party tonight in Podersdorfs Move Surfstore. Be sure to check back in to see what unfolds on day two of freestyles curtain raiser here in Austria.
