Bonaire PWA World Cup - Day 3

Women’s 

 

Double Elimination

 

Winners’ Final

 

Maikke Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) qualified for her first appearance in a winners’ final after taking down the current PWA Freestyle Vice-World Champion Arrianne Aukes (RRD / Simmer / Maui Ultra Fins) in a hugely impressive display.

Waiting for her was the ominous figure of Sarah-Quita Offringa, as always. The sixteen year old made a strong start to the heat, sliding through a perfect spock, but Offringa came flying out of the starting blocks as she exploded into a quick double flaka and a text-book funnel.

Huvermann soon shook off any nerves to demonstrate the kind of form that had earned her a place in the final as she landed smooth flakas on both tacks, a superb funnel and a grubby diablo. However, Offringa was in untouchable form again today and only got stronger as the heat progressed. From flawless bobs on both sides, to sick shakas and a massive culo, the Queen of Freestyle remained in a league of her own, for now at least.

A Star For The Future

 

Maikke Huvermann was the standout sailor today as she fought her way back through the double elimination. En route to her first ever final the Dutch girl dispatched of several big names, firstly Olya Raskina (JP / NeilPryde), Oda Johanne (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Yoli de Brendt (Fanatic / North) before claiming the biggest victory of her career to date against Arrianne Aukes. Huvermann showed all the qualities - consistency, variation and style - required to be hugely successful and is only going to progress as a sailor from her on, making her not only a talent to keep a careful eye on over the remainder of the event, but also for years to come.
