We also filmed Victor Fernandez´s double elimination heat. Victor Fernandez (28) from Almeria, Spain, is one of the world best wave sailors in side onshore conditions. He made it to all finals in the past years at Pozo Izquierdo and was able to win in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010. He always had Philip Köster as the opponent in the finals since 2009. 2010 Victor won the PWA Wave world title. This year he sailed a great final, landed massive jumps, but lost some points in wave riding in the final of the double elimination. The final was sailed on the 6.07.2012 in extremely rough conditions with an average windspeed of 45 to 50 knots. Victor started his heat on a 3,7m sail, but switched after one run out to his smallest sail size, the 3,4.
