The opening day of the 2019 Tenerife PWA World Cup saw a quiet start to proceedings with light winds and only a short sweet spot of waves, so after the registration in the morning, there was a brief window of opportunity to complete a few of the youth’s heats.

Alexia Kiefer Quintana claimed a clearcut victory in the opening Girl’s U15s division after linking together a 7 point wave and a 4 point forward to defeat Lisa Wermeister, María Morales and Lina Eržen.

Julia Pasquale looked to be in excellent form in her opening heat of the week as she linked together several stylish waves to deservedly win the U17s ahead of Mar de Arce, Ines Arija and Lina Thekook.

Carlos Kiefer Quintana came out on top against Val Eržen in the opening U13s battle of the week with the young German making the better of the tricky conditions.

Tobias Bjørnaa produced one of the highlights of the day as he landed the only backloop to deservedly win the first heat in the U15s ahead of Giulio Gasperini and Carlos Kiefer Quintana, while Hayata Ishii claimed victory in Heat 2 ahead of Elliot Foveau and Pepe Krause.
