Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) extends her incredible unbeaten run on the Women’s PWA Freestyle World Tour to 11 years after winning both events this year to claim her 11th Freestyle world title. The 27-year-old continues to raise the bar for women’s freestyle, and in a year where it was thought she would face her biggest test yet to regain her world title, Offringa has more than risen to the occasion and is still undoubtedly the Queen of Freestyle.
Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Oda Johanne (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) have both raised their level again, but even though they threatened Offringa in Portugal, neither could really land a telling blow here to trouble the now 15 time world champion (11 Freestyle & 4 Slalom).
This season there has been almost nothing between Huvermann and Johanne, but it is Huvermann who walks away with second place to be crowned vice-world champion for the 3rd time in her career, but a coin flip could’ve almost decided that, such was the closeness of their battles.
Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) couldn’t trouble the top 3 this time around, but the 31-year-old proved far too strong for the rest of the fleet, which sees her secure 4th place in the overall rankings ahead Johanna Rümenapp (I-99 / Gun Sails / Maui Ultra Fins), who finishes 5th in her debut season.
8-time Freestyle World Champion – Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) – proved himself to still be the man that everyone else has to beat as the Venezuelan once again showed that he has that killer instinct of a champion, while still oozing style left, right and centre. And with his main rival – Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) – only managing to finish 4th here you would have to think that victory here is a massive step towards Freestyle World title No.9 – especially given the fact that either Gollito or Vrieswijk have won the last 6 Freestyle events between them.
Adrien Bosson (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) walks away from the opening event of the year with his best ever result on the PWA World Tour – 2nd. The Frenchman has previously finished 3rd in both Austria and Sylt, but went one time better this time around and looks incredibly dangerous.
Yentel Caers (JP / Point-7) completes the podium here after producing a series of explosive displays and is firmly in the hunt for his first world title. Caers has not finished outside the top 3 here since 2016 and is now unquestionably one of the main threats on the world tour.
Amado Vrieswijk will be incredibly disappointed with 4th place here as with just 2 events on this year’s freestyle tour it looks as though his wait to earn a first world title will go on for at least one more season. And although it seems only a matter of time before the 22-year-old will get his hands on the freestyle world title – the longer he has to wait, the more problematic it could become to shake the monkey off his back.
The top 5 is completed by Antoine Albert (Goya Windsurfing), Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails), Steven van Broeckhoven (JP / Gun Sails) and Jacopo Testa (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360). Albert and Testa both earned their best ever results last year – 7th and 3rd overall – while the two Belgian’s are former world champions who can clearly still mix it with the best in the business.
Philip Soltysiak (Starboard / Sailworks), Nicolas Akgazciyan, Balz Müller (MB Boards / Severne), Davy Scheffers (Tabou / GA Sails), Sam Esteve (JP / NeilPryde), Francesco Cappuzzo (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360), Mattia Fabrizi (Patrik / Challenger Sails) and Tonky Frans (RRD / RRD Sails / AL360) complete the overall top 10.
