Dieter van der Eyken released a video with his best action from Pozo Izquierdo. The 2015 PWA Freestyle World Champ participated in all PWA events on the Canaries in freestyle and waves. First he took part in the wave event on Gran Canaria, then in the freestyle event on Fuerteventura where he finished 4th and then he took part in the wave event on Tenerife where he broke into the top 10 for the first time since beginning competing in the waves and finished 9th. That’s an awesome result and his training in waves during the last years seems to pay off. He is now looking forward to his next event, the upcoming PWA wave event at Klitmøller in Denmark.
Dieter van der Eyken: “The Canaries were amazing this summer! For the second year in a row I travelled by van to the Canaries for my summer emigration south! After a 4 day trip I made it to Gran Canaria ready for a windy summer. In the end I probably spent most of my time at Pozo Izquierdo with wind almost every single day. It was great to sail freestyle on the flat and not so windy days and go into the waves on the more windy/wavy days. Most of the wave action in the video is from just after the competition when I had probably my best session from the whole summer… such a pity those conditions didn’t happen one week earlier during the PWA Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival as it would have made the show so much better! As you can see this is Part 1 as for the second part I will combine Fuerteventura with Tenerife in a few weeks time as I will have to edit it between competitions. The next stop is around the corner and I’m really looking forward to go to Denmark and I really hope it gets windy as I haven’t scored a single wave session since I am back home from the Canaries. So I really can’t wait to get some waves again!! Lets hope this summer is over and the windy autumn finally begins!! Bring on those storms!!”
