The 2007 Costa Teguise Grand Slam - Day 2



No go for Slalom…

A frustrating morning saw some of the most epic surf-slalom conditions the PWA’s witnessed for years go unexploited as logo-high surf scuppered the crew’s ability to safely set a course.

Deep water offshore ruled a start out to sea impossible and the risk to the boats and their crews on the reef sections were just too much.

The decision to switch back to Freestyle was taken and the second single elimination got underway.

Women

Nayra Alonso (Fanatic / Severne) consolidated her success from the first double elimination today by instantly beating Iballa Moreno (North). Nursing a damaged shoulder Moreno sailed bravely but just couldn’t match the new and improved style of her Gran Canarian neighbor.

Daida Moreno however had other ideas and spoiled Alonso’s party to secure her spot in the final.

Laure Treboux (Naish / Naish) was pipped to the post by Sarah-Quita Offringa in an action-packed semi final. Offringa was too technical for the Swiss girl, but Treboux let some steam off when she sealed third place in the loser’s final by punishing Alonso.

Women’s final

In similar conditions to yesterday’s final, Moreno predictably used the ramps to try and score extra points against Offering’s inventory of switch stance and technical, sliding tricks. Moreno fell a few times too many however in the choppy sections and the teenager from Aruba sailed steady and even made some higher jump tricks that she’s not usually renowned for.

Ever enthusiastic the charismatic young Caribbean star reflected on the tie ‘I really wanted this win. I did all the basics well and then worked my way to more technical stuff. I even made some big forwards, which I’ve never done in heats before. I saw Daida had fallen a few times so that took the pressure off and relaxed me into finishing the job’

Skipper’s meeting tomorrow is at 10.00 and the plan is to run Slalom – hopefully through some breaking wave sections. With more swell and wind on the way we’re bound to see some classic racing yet.
