Maaike Huvermann & Amado Vrieswijk win the 219 EFPT DAM-X in Brouwersdam in the Netherlands. Lennart Neubauer and Lina Erzen were dominating the U-16 divisions. It was an exciting final event of the EFPT as the conditions got better day by day.

On day 3 the wind blew from the morning onwards with 25 to 30 knots, in gusts up to 35 knots, from south-westerly directions. The strong wind produced a steep chop, which allowed the best riders to land clean Air Kabikuchis and Amado Vrieswijk a Double Air Culo.
The man of the day was Amado Vrieswijk, who made it to the final of the double elimination and then won twice against event leader Steven van Broeckhoven with an incredible high score of over 41,56 points (3 moves counting on each tack). Giovanni Passani finished the double elimination in third. 

Finally more wind today. I felt comfortable and could win. I just have seen Steven landing a Bongka into my face and thought, mmmh, I have to land one, too! (Amado Vrieswijk)
