The 2008 PWA Costa Teguise World Cup – Day Three


The Lanzarote wind machine was once again turned to full power for another day of freestyle carnage in Costa Teguise. With a full double elimination in the bag, day three turned up the heat to deliver another successfully completed single elimination.

The eight strong women’s freestyle fleet was quickly narrowed down to a semi final consisting of Daido Moreno (North Sails) versus Laure Treboux (Fanatic, North Sails), and Iballa Moreno (North Sails) versus Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard, NeilPryde).

The Moreno’s battled in their heats, but failed to match Offringa and Treboux’s more technical switch moves, setting up a rerun of day two’s double elimination final between Treboux and Offringa.

Treboux’s consistency dwindled under the pressure of the final, while Offringa raised her game to a whole new level. In a run that included; a shaka, air flaka, eslider, funnel and a grubby diablo to name but a few, Offringa convincingly took down her opponent. Treboux took second.

The losers final was won by Daida Moreno, who had to do little more than a handful of moves to dispatch her sister Iballa, who struggled to find her rhythm.

This single elimination will only count towards the official scores when the double elimination is successfully completed tomorrow. Be sure to tune into day four to see how the remainder of this chapter pans out.
