PWA World Tour 2012: The Champs

The 2012 2012 PWA World Tour came to an end. And it ended with an epic finale: the Reno PWA Sylt World Cup. The elite of pro windsurfing gathered in the waves of Sylt, as the eyes of the entire windsurfing community were pointed on them. And none of them disappointed. They all staged an amazing show and displayed their awesome skills.

Antoine Albeau, Jose "Gollito" Estredo, Philip Köster, Iballa Ruano Moreno, Valerie Arrighetti and Sarah-Quita Offringa have been crowned in the Slalom, Freestyle and Wave windsurfing world champions.
Here are a few words from the champs, at the end of the event.

Antoine Albeau, winner in Men's Slalom and 2012 PWA Slalom World Champ: "I am really happy to be number one in the world again. I think that the 2012 PWA Sylt World Cup has been a really big success because we got results for all three disciplines."

Jose "Gollito" Estredo, World Champ Freestyle: “For sure I am really happy to win the world title again, I think for the fifth time. I would also like to thank all of the sponsors for this great event; it's brilliant to be in Sylt every year. Competing in these conditions is hard for sure, but we manage it."
