Today was certainly a day to remember for 5x World Champion Aaron Hadlow (GB/North) and 9x World Champion Gisela Pulido (ES/Best), who both put on performances that were nothing short of exceptional!

The weather for the day was once again extremely tough, with the wind blowing up to 30 knots. The heats got underway at 9.15 am, with all the freestyle riders pushing hard in each intense battle. For the quarter finals, there was an extremely tight heat between 2x World Champion Youri Zoon (NL/Best) and Aaron Hadlow (GB/North). Zoon was on form, landing an impressive 317 and S-Mobe 7. However, Hadlow performed an even bigger S-Mobe 7 in an intense final minutes of the heat. In the end, Hadlow took the victory from Zoon’s grasp. Recent qualifier Jerome Cloetens (BE/North) came face to face with Carlos Mario (BR/Slingshot) in the second heat of the quarter finals.

The action continues on Day Four of the Pringles Kitesurf World Cup

It was an early start for the rider’s on day 4 of the VKWC in St. Peter Ording, with the temperatures feeling somewhat lower than the previous days here. The slalom racers prepared their gear under the overcast skies and got ready for a morning full of rapid racing action. The first rounds of the men’s and women’s third slalom elimination were run successfully. We witnessed an exciting final for this 3rd elimination, after frenchman Julien Kerneur (FR/Airush) and his team mate Oswald Smith (ZA/Airush) went over early and were disqualified. The second start of the heat was incredibly tight with Florian Gruber (DE/Ozone) in the lead followed closely by Marvin Baumeister (AUS/Flysurfer), Jannis Maus (DE/North) and Olly Bridge (GB/North). Maus overtook Baumeister at the 2nd mark by using a smart strategy and taking the inside. Bridge then managed to do the same right at the finish line bringing him to 3rd place behind Maus and a commited Gruber who gained some distance on the third tack and finished well ahead of the others, which gave him a well deserved 1st position. The german rider Emmanuel Norman (DE/Flysurfer) tangled with the young moroccan talent Elias Ouahmid (MOR/North), which meant he …
