Lighter winds and smaller waves were forecast for the sixth day in Tenerife, providing the sailors with the perfect opportunity to have a day of rest and relaxation.
However with an invitation to the legendary Siam Water Park it proved difficult for many of the sailors to say no. Siam Water Park opened the doors to seventy of the elite sailors and their guests to spend the afternoon riding their awesome rides or to sit and soak up the sun by the pool.
The afternoon also provided the super-session winner’s the perfect opportunity to claim their prize of a two-hour private surfing session in the incredible artificial wave pool.
Siam Park boasts the largest artificial wave in the world reaching a record 3 meters high. The wave pool is fully customizable allowing the operator to decide whether the wave is a left or right-hander and choose the size of the waves.
With a group of the world’s most competitive windsurfers it wasn’t long before the sailors were charging around the pool in a bid to outdo each other.
Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Simmer / MFC) and Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC) proved that they weren’t just windsurfing talents tearing up the artificial wave with their slick top turns.
After a few practice run’s Iballa Ruano Moreno (Starboard / Severne) and Karin Jaggi (Patrik / Severne) ripped the wave to pieces for the crowds.
Wave of the Day
The wave of the day has to go to Kauli Seadi (JP / NeilPryde) as he brought the fluidity from his windsurfing into the wave pool, working the wave with a clean set of linked turns all the way to the shoreline.
This evening the sailors will be treated to mountain meal to re-fuel after an action packed day.
