Full Results


The 4th competition day started off slow with super light winds. It was a perfect day for the local public to spend time on the beach, it got super busy right after lunch time and a sup (stand up paddle) contest was organized for everyone who wanted to join. The crowds enjoyed the sup contest, the skydivers dropping from the blue sky and the pounding sounds from the dj's monitors.

Suddenly the wind shifted and slowly started to pick up, an announcement was made and the first heat scheduled was the Youths double elimination followed by the Juniors and the Pro kids.

In the first heat the conditions seems to get lighter and lighter and the gusts were not strong enough for an official freestyle competition so the first heat got cancelled and all riders were on standby until the winds would become better. A lot of spectators came to watch the kids while a super session was being organized with the whole fleet.

Wind got worse and the day was over.


Finally a sunny windy morning, a perfect day for the official windsurf freestyle competition here at the Sosh Freestyle cup / 2012 IFCA Pro Kids, Junior, Youth Freestyle World Championships presented by SONY.

The skippers meeting was held at 9:00 am and the pro kids were up for the first single elimination rounds on the 3rd competition day. During the start of the first heat the winds started to get lighter and the heat had to be postponed. The conditions were very gusty but the first rounds were finally running with some great light wind action from some of the riders.

A few heat cancelations where made but, later on the winds changed direction and started to get a little better, so the head judge decided to extended the heat duration from 5 to 8 minutes due to the tricky onshore winds.

Full single eliminations were also completed in the junior and youth category, the youths managed to show off some of the new school tricks such as funnels, flakas, shakas and several tricks in the switch stance mode. The day ended with the announcement of the top four finalists of the first single eliminations in the sosh freestyle cup event village.

Pro Kids Highlights:
The youngster from Aruba Steven Max made his way to the semifinals with a combination of light wind sail tricks and geckos.

In the final round we had two training buddies from Belgium competing against each other for first place; it was a quite interesting show.
