Philip Köster lost against Julien Quentel, who was on a single fin setup by the way and showed impressive wave riding. Jaeger Stone and Ricardo Campello are Fernandez’s title rivals left in the single elimination but to take the title, they still would rely on their fellow pros.
Lina Erpenstein, Sarah-Quita Offringa, Iballa Moreno and Steffi Wahl are the top 4 women, who remain in the single elimination. Daida withdrew from the competition due to injury. This event will be her discard event and won’t change her positions in the overall ranking.
