It was an early start on day 2 of the EFPT Surf Opening at Neusiedl am See in Austria. At 6:45 the Covid testing for riders/crew started. But unfortunately the early start has not really helped to recommence the competition. 
After a lot of waiting and many attempted heats, 2 heats got completed in the afternoon. We saw a lot of pumping and resails. Felix Volkhardt, Dieter van der Eyken, Sam Esteve and Marco Vinante advanced into the next round. Heat 5a+5b (Schmidt vs Cooke & Marconi vs Kort) got attempted 10 times for example. And still no result until now. In between the riders showed nice moves in the stronger gusts, like Culos, Burners, Shaka 720°, Bobs, Switch Chachos, etc. 
At 17:30 race director Danny Kater called it a day.
