The 2008 Fuerteventura PWA Grand Slam – Day Ten



Entering the final day of competition, the top position in the women’s fleet had already been decided upon, after Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard, NeilPryde) dominated the first two eliminations, making her effectively untouchable.

In the women’s fleet, Iballa Moreno (North) put an end to Nayra Alonso’s (Fanatic Severne) elimination run, before she dropped out of contention courtesy of Junko Nagoshi’s (Simmer, Dakine) tactical sailing.

Nagoshi then had her wits tested in a duel with Daida Moreno (North). The Japanese freestyler started the heat well, landing a forward loop and a flaka, but repeated moves on the same tack took their toll on her score sheet. Moreno was left free to advance thanks to a varied and higher scoring run that included a super clean goiter.

Moreno’s last hurdle before meeting Offringa in the final was Laure Treboux (Fanatic, North). Treboux wasted no time and quickly seized the early lead, landing a fully planning grubby right by the beach, and a spock on the outside.

Much to Moreno’s advantage, the waves then started to roll in, allowing her to land a massive forward loop, a shaka, and an awesome one handed goiter on the inside, which awarded her crucial points, and ultimately her ticket to challenge Offringa in the final.

Regardless of the outcome of the final, Offringa and Moreno had done enough to secure first and second position respectively, meaning the ensuing bout was going to be a battle of pride alone.

Hungry to continue her unbeaten run, Offringa launched into her usual assault of funnels, switch chachoos and air flakas. Opting for higher aerial moves, Moreno threw forward loops on both tacks, and her usual slick goiter on the inside. Despite a spirited performance from Moreno, she failed to match Offringa’s depth and technicality.

Maintaining her perfect run of first place finishes; Offringa added one more victory to her tally, extending her unprecedented run for the 2008 season.
