PWA Fuerteventura Grand Slam Day 9: Offringa Takes the Doubles

For the better part of day 9, the penultimate day of the PWA Fuerteventura Grand Slam 2012, the freestyle riders were held on standby as the conditions proved to be frustrating once again. I remind you that on day 8 the conditions were so fickle that only two heats were completed – and that’s something to get frustrated about. The frustration continued as the wind was once again fickle on day 9 – until 5PM at least.

The good news is that shortly after 5PM, the conditions improved and the freestylers could go out on the water and get the competition underway. The men managed to complete the first round of the double elimination; they worked their way up to heat 35 which was started but had to be cancelled due to deteriorating conditions. The women on the other hand managed to complete the double elimination. The same rider that claimed victory in the singles won the doubles as well: Sarah-Quita Offringa.
