With no further competition on the last day in Sylt the results remain. Amado Vrieswijk successfully defends his event title from last year, meanwhile, Marine Hunter and Lennart Neubauer walk away from Germany with their first victories on the World Tour.

In terms of the overall world rankings, nothing really changes in the Men’s and Women’s Wave with Sarah-Quita Offringa and Ricardo Campello continuing to lead heading into the final event on the year in Maui, Hawaii, later in October. However, in the Men’s Slalom, Maciek Rutkowski continues to lead, but he is now joined at the top of the rankings by Matteo Iachino  on 30,300 points after the Italian finished second here. 

Meanwhile, Pierre Mortefon and Johan Søe are just a further 100 points further back, so the world title decider in Japan promises to be a thrilling affair, whilst Amado Vrieswijk still has an outside chance on 30,000 points. 

Unfortunately, the weather didn’t really play ball for the official prize giving ceremony at 3pm, but there was still a solid turnout from the local crowd as they watched the respective event champions crowned, whilst Yentel Caers was officially crowned Freestyle World Champion for the second time in his career. 17-year-old Takumi Moriya was also awarded his Youth Freestyle world title – after finishing in an excellent 14th place overall on his first year on tour.
