During the whole week the weather in Klitmøller didn’t really come up with the conditions that were needed. However Cold Hawaii somehow produced the goods again, despite the fading hopes – and rapidly fading light – as the wind and waves returned just in the nick of time to see Fanatic’s Victor Fernandez claim 2nd place right behind Thomas Traversa.
Victor came into the event as the current world tour leader and continued his superb form to book his place in the final, alongside Thomas Traversa after the two defeated Leon Jamaer and Robby Swift, respectively in the semifinals. However, the winners’ final wasn’t just a battle between the last two men standing, but also a fight against time as darkness moved in. Despite the dark, both sailors continued to perform terrifically well, especially considering the extremely challenging conditions on offer. Victor was on fire and ruled in the air as he stomped a tabletop forward. In the end he claimed a great second place and is is still leading the World Tour overall!
Awesome riding in such difficult conditions and a pleasure to watch! Well done Victor and congratulations!
Fanatic is now also positioned in 1st in the PWA Constructors Ranking for Waveboards – pretty cool:-)
