Steven van Broeckhoven
After completing two single and two double eliminations in the past three competition days, the final day started very relaxed for the riders and crew with the skippers meeting at midday.
In the first few days here at Costa Teguise we've seen strong wind and pumping swell as well as slightly lighter wind and less wavy conditions. All the riders were putting an a great show that amazed the crowds watching on the beach. With no chance of finishing another double elimination the final result was already announced yesterday.
Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP/Neilpryde) who had to take almost the whole season off competing in 2015, proved once again how complete his windsurfing skills are. The Belgian sailor was not only performing great in the waves and howling winds but also in lighter, more challenging conditions. Second on the podium after two double eliminations is Frenchie Adrien Bosson (North/Fanatic) who is hunting for the European Freestyle Pro Tour title in 2016. The rider from the South of France showed a great routine in all of his heats, combining power moves and big jumping maneuvres. Third has been Jacopo Testa from Italy, who signed up very late because he was meant to compete in the Italian Championships that had to be called off on very late notice. Testa was definitely one of the most impressive riders of this competition and it seemed that his contest sailing was spot on.
