See here the starting list of the event.
Favourites? Current worldchampion Gollito Estredo likes the choppy conditions on the Lake Neusiedler and is the big favourite. He has won in 2008 at Podersdorf. The Bonaire gang with Kiri, Tonky & Taty – just watch “The island boys”clip – seems to be on fire. And Steven van Broeckhoven will have some new tricks in his pocket. Davy Scheffers could present the Skopu…. We will definitely see new moves at Podersdorf.
Unfortunately very poor forecast for the competition…May is always very risky, March and beginning of April are very good and windy periods but the icy water would really surprise the tropical guys 🙂
You are right. Seems like newschool Freestyle isn´t that popular in the states. Perhaps the water is too cold, or the waves are too big. Back in the 90ties there were the Pritchards, Stone and Pedrick.
There are names like Tysen Poor nowadays, who made it on the PWA tour already.
No US Freestylers???? 🙁
