The Red Bull Heavy Water event in San Francisco clearly showcased what the event is about, as the Bay Area delivered a XXL swell to challenge the very best paddlers in the world in a way they have never been challenged before. Out of the top 30 registered riders, only 19 eventually joined the race and 14 reached the finish in this radical conditions.
Fanatic´s Arthur Arutkin and young Christian Andersen both finished this ultimate challenge! Arthur has long been a major threat on tour, and is also one of the most consistent racers in the game. Somehow he remains somewhat under the radar, but his performances speak for themselves. In this year’s Red Bull Heavy Water, he once again propelled himself to 7th place in the race, and secured 5th place overall at the end of the season on the APP World Tour – an incredible achievement by the young French talent. Christian is new to the tour and with only 16 years of age he was very brave to finish the race in 13th place. Well done boys and well done to Casper Steinfath for taking the title!
