The final event of the year in Sylt proved to be a great occasion for the NeilPryde team as two of their riders claimed world titles. Philip Köster (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) successfully defended his 2011 PWA Wave World Championship and the wonderkid now has two world crowns to his name at the tender age of eighteen. Meanwhile, Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) reclaimed his PWA Slalom World title having narrowly missed out in 2011 to his arch rival Bjorn Dunkerbeck (Starboard / Severne / Mystic / Dunkerbeck Eyewear / Chris Benz).
Sylt also proved to be a great event for one of the most promising young freestylers on the PWA World Tour, Youp Schmit (JP / NeilPryde), as he enjoyed his best event ever by taking fifth place overall in the men’s freestyle double elimination, as well as being crowned the Youth Champion for the second successive year. Elsewhere the 2011 PWA Freestyle World Champion, Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP / NeilPryde), ended the season in third place overall.
There were further awards for team Pryde too after Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC) produced a mesmerising performance in the night session to claim first place.
Now Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins) and Heidy Swift have collaborated the best of the action into an incredible new movie, which is packed with amazing, radical stunts, as you would expect with so many superstars of the windsurfing world on display. All that’s left for you to do is sit back and enjoy eleven and a half minutes of windsurfing gold.
