Catharina Edin states:
“Coming into the last stop of the year felt really good.
I competed in my first world cup in Dakhla back in 2014 and have been back there several times. I felt really comfortable since I knew that the GKA wanted to run a 100% wave event & that I’m familiar with the spot.
The conditions for the week were very light, I competed on my 12m STOKE with 6m extention lines on my FORCE control bar during the whole event.
My first two rounds went well and I made it into the semi finals with a 7.15 in very challenging conditions. Unfortunately the wind only got worse and during the heat the wind was barely enough to keep a 12m in the air. In the end I managed to get a 3rd shared place and define my 3rd place overall this season.”
FLYSURFER congrats all athletes for an outstanding performance and a thrilling event.
