Women’s

Single Elimination

Winners’ Final


The legendary Moreno twins - Iballa Ruano Moreno (Starboard / Severne) and Daida Ruano Moreno (Starboard / Severne) - set up yet another final against each other after they defeated Steffi Wahl (Patrik / Sailloft Hamburg) and Karin Jaggi (Patrik / Severne) respectively in the semifinals. Daida opened the final with a backloop, whilst Iballa had to settle for a well executed forward, despite desperately hunting for a ramp for a bigger jump.

With both of the women struggling for power they both opted to race in for an equipment change, which soon paid dividends for Daida as she threw herself into a huge forward loop before landing a text-book one-handed backloop. Daida also came out on top on the wave as she connected several vertical, fluid turns to ensure that she would be standing at the top of the podium come the end of the heat. After a few minutes of waiting it was soon revealed that Daida had indeed claimed victory.

Karin Jaggi claimed third place ahead of Steffi Wahl in the losers’ final thanks largely to her extra firepower in the air. The Swiss gem rotated through a great forward loop before also landing a backloop. With Wahl only landing a forward it was always going to be an almost impossible battle for the German to fight her way onto the podium.

With a brilliant looking forecast promising plenty of wind and a slightly bigger swell for tomorrow, the skippers’ meeting has been called for 9am with the action resuming from 09:30am. It looks as though tomorrow will be another action packed day, make sure you don’t miss out on the outstanding action by tuning into the PWA TV at www.pwaworldtour.com.
