On day 6 the PWA decided to move the freestyle competition from Le Jaï in Marignane to the open sea at Le Carro. It was the right decision. Head judge Duncan Coombs organized the judging tower, Alvaa Media produced together with Ben Proffitt the livestream and the freestyle pros showed their best skills. 9 ladies and 23 men went over the rocks and sailed relatively far out in 12 – 25 knots of wind. Most of the riders were on 4.8 m sails, some on 4.4m. Almost all riders used a classic fin setup, whereas Balz Müller competed with his freestyle foil setup.

Watch an action packed freestyle video about the first day of the freestyle single elimination by Alvaa Media. It’s a video about the comeback of freestyle on the PWA tour after a more than 2 year long break due to the worldwide COVID pandemic. Unfortunately it was impossible to complete the single elimination on day 6 as the wind dropped. 

A day later Sarah-Quita Offringa from Aruba and Amado Vrieswijk from Bonaire won the single elimination and already have their hands on the 2021 PWA Freestyle title.
