PWA Freestyle World Cup Bonaire – Day 4 (3rd day of competition)
Heat 23b of the 2nd Single Elimination proved to be one, if not the heat of the day, with both sailors absolutely on fire throughout. Vrieswijk set the tone right from the start as he exploded into a spectacular Air Kabikuchi – the first one to be landed in competition – before also landing a flawless Kabikuchi on the opposite tack and a massive Air Bob. With just moments left to go Vrieswijk powered inside and unleashed a phenomenal double Culo, which proved critical as it was soon revealed that he had successful defeated the reigning world champion Kiri Thode, who himself landed an incredible array of moves such as a monster shaka into triple Flaka, trademark Air Bobs, a crazy air bob into Culo and a super quick Kabikuchi, such was the unbelievable level and battle that unfolded.

Phenomenal !! Amado surfed absolut loose, so he could stomp his big manouvres in perfection !!! Incredible Air Kabikuchi !! Also respect to Kiri, but he seemed a bit exhausted from the first heats.
