Dunkerbeck-Eyewear Siam Park Tenerife PWA World Cup


L’ultima giornata del PWA di Tenerife è terminata come da programma con l’esibizione di salti al Siam Park nella piscina con l’onda artificiale. I rider venivano trainati e lanciati a tutta velocità dalla moto d’acqua ed eseguivano le loro manovre aeree. Abbiamo potuto ammirare lo spettacolo grazie al Live Streaming offerto dal PWA. In totale assenza di vento era molto difficile per i rider chiudere in piedi manovre come Push Loop o Back Loop. Alcuni rider , tra cui Ricardo Campello, invece hanno interpretato al meglio la nuova situazione mescolando le manovre Freestyle ad altezze impressionanti. Ecco quindi che Ricardo è riuscito a chiudere perfettamente in piedi una doppia Air Flake e altre manovre di cui una di sua invenzione “the Monky”, una specie di Push Loop into Shaka.
Insomma un grande spettacolo reso possibile dalla super sponsorizzazione di Dunkerbeck-Eyewear, gli occhiali del Capo, che ha anche aperto una nuova catena di negozi.

Le emozionanti foto dell’esibizione al Siam Park stanno facendo il giro del web, qui di seguito vi proponiamo il video e una breve selezione di John Carter.

Dunkerbeck-Eyewear Siam Park Tenerife PWA World Cup
Day 7: An incredible evening of radical tow-in at Siam Park
With the main event of the 2014 Dunkerbeck-Eyewear Siam Park Tenerife PWA World Cup being concluded two days early, yesterday saw a phenomenal conclusion to another brilliant event in Tenerife as the elite of the wave sailing world headed to Siam Park for the Dunkerbeck Eyewear tow-in exhibition.
On Friday afternoon the Dunkerbeck Eyewear Super Session was held – counting for 50% – with the top 8 sailors, plus 3 wildcards being given the chance to show their expertise in front of a packed out crowd. Ricardo Campello (Patrik / Point-7 / MFC) earned victory in the super session to become the first man to guarantee himself at Siam Park as well as Aleix Sanllehy (Goya Windsurfing / MFC), Adam Lewis (Fanatic / North), Alex Mussolini (Tabou / GA Sails), Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde), Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins), Boujmaa Guilloul (Starboard / Severne / Mystic / MFC), Jonas Ceballos, Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde), Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North) and last but not least, event organiser Dany Bruch (Starboard / Challenger / AL360).
The action which followed was nothing short of remarkable as the sailors delivered a jaw dropping display, much to the appreciation of the crowd. The evening featured painful looking crashes, near misses with the wall, but also some of the craziest rotations we’ve ever seen as the world’s best pushed the limits of the sport once more with the assistance of a jetski.
After an intense qualifying process for the final – consisting of 3 attempts each, with the top 2 different jumps to count – the initial field was eventually narrowed down to the top 3 who advanced into the final featuring Ricardo Campello, Robby Swift and Leon Jamaer.
Campello had looked in supreme form in qualifying and he continued his remarkable performance in the final to storm to an emphatic victory. The Brazilian effortlessly wowed the crowds and was visibly impressed with his own performance as he rotated through crazy paskos, shaka into pushloops and pushloops into shakas to keep Robby Swift and Leon Jamaer at bay, as the two teammates had to settle for second and third respectively.
