The seventh day of the Fuerte Wave Classic welcomed the riders with dark heavy clouds in the early morning. Nobody thought, that any action could happen later that day. But the sun broke through and at 14.00, while the third skippersmeeting of the day, Orlando Lavandera announced that all competitors should drive to Cotillo. Thomas Traversa were already riding the masthigh waves there in very light wind conditions. He already had scored 3 good waverides, when the rest of the FWC troop arrived at Puertito.
Local waterman Stephane Etienne was the first one, who followed Thomas. He decided to choose the SUP this afternoon and could score big with impressive rides. On his final wave he got almost smashed on the reef and broke his favourite SUP gun. “I had some nice rides. It was a good day. But unfortunately I have to repair the board quick. And I really hope, that we will get some stronger wind while the upcoming days, that I can go out on the windsurfing gear!”
