PWA World Cup

"I hope I can continue like this in the future"

lundi 6 octobre 2014Information PWA

The final day of the 2014 DAVIDOFF Cool Water Sylt PWA Super Grand Slam saw the light winds return, meaning the final action of the event was another SUP Race. With no more competition being possible today - Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / North / MFC) - was crowned the PWA Freestyle World Champion for the sixth time in his illustrious career, after his victory in the single elimination. Meanwhile, Arnon Dagan (RRD / NeilPryde), celebrated his maiden victory on the PWA Slalom World Tour after a nail biting week of waiting.

At 3:30pm the official prize giving was held as the winners were crowned in front of a packed out beach to close the curtain on another great event in Sylt. After the prize giving we caught up with the winner :

PWA : Gollito, how does it feel to win your sixth world title ?

Gollito : “It’s a dream to win my sixth world title. It feels amazing, I never expected it in my life. I’m really happy to have won again and be back at the top. I hope I can continue like this in the future and I will keep training as hard as I can over the winter to make sure I can keep up.”

PWA : You came into the final event of the year in third place, did you think you’d be able to come out as the world champion ?

Gollito : “I never expected it to be honest. I just came to compete and try to get a good result in the final event of the year. To leave as the world champion is unbelievable. I feel lucky, but this is competition sailing. Last year I sailed really good, but I had a bad finish to the year, this year it worked out differently.”

Freestyle queen - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins) - who was officially crowned PWA Freestyle World Champion for an incredible seventh time, she said :

“Yeaaah ! Lucky number seven. I am actually really happy about it, especially because this year I had time to train and I feel like a progressed, in competition as well. When the called out my name earlier on stage, I felt a bit emotional. When I think about it, seven world titles is actually a lot, so… I don’t know… I’m thankful, it’s really good. I’m also happy to see Oda (Johanne) and Maaike (Huvermann) pushing because that also keeps pushing me to improve. I can’t wait.”

After the prize giving the sailors prepared to depart Sylt for another year and the slalom fleets and men’s wave sailors will meet again from the 18th October as they head to La Torche, France.
