German globetrotter, environmentalist, board tester, father and wave windsurfing pro Florian wins the wave event at the 2017 Summer Opening in Westerland, Sylt. He defeated Leon Jamaer in the final.
As it was by far too windy for the Formula sailors, who have their World Championships in Sylt this year, the organizer switched to the wave riding discipline. The 24 wave riders were more than happy to get one day with suitable conditions during the event period. 20 to 25 knots and waves up to 3 meters allowed nice jumps and a few wave rides in the tricky onshore conditions.
Dennis Müller, Flo Jung, Leon Jamaer and Max Droege made it into the top4. Leon defeated Dennis and Flo beat Max. Leon and Flo had a tough battle in the final and according to he organizers it was a close decision. In the end it was Flo Jung who won the event. Max Droege made it in third place defeating Dennis Müller in the losers final. Congratulations to the winners!!
Flo Jung: “I felt really good on the water here in Sylt and it definitely helps to come back from the heat and feel the support from my little family here on the beach. Sylt is always a challenging spot with light straight onshore winds and hardcore shore break and it’s always a gamble if you make it back out after each wave.”
