Tonky Frans wins Chiemsee Tow-in qualification round 1 at the Surfworldcup in Neusiedl, Austria


Amado Vrieswijk, who showed a double air culo in training last weekend and who was one of the contenders for the win, lost the footstraps in both of his runs and couldn’t make it into the final.

Antoine Albert from New Caledonia was going for his signature move, the Skopu in his first run, without using the wave as a ramp, but couldn’t land the trick. In his second round though he went all in and circled through a mega fast Burner Diablo (42 points). Swiss windsurfer Loick Spicher was one of the few riders going into the move regular stance. He stomped a perfect Culo and scored 42,5 points. Julien Mas pulled an amazing one handed Air Burner 360 (43,5 points). Nicolas Akgazciyan who is always one to watch out for, landed a sick Air Burner Funnell, with one and a half rotations being completely in the air (45 points). The winning move was performed by no one less than world famous sailor Tonky Frans. Tonky reached some serious height in a Skopu.

Two days are left for the event and at the moment the forecast for Sunday looks quite promising.
