Besides winning the PWA Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival, Philip Köster tried a Triple Forward Loop in the last seconds of the winners final of the single elimination. During the last minute of his heat against Alex Mussolini, we already felt, that Philip wanted to go for something big as a big set came closer and Philip accelerated suddenly. And then, bammm, the Triple Forward Loop attempt.
In 2008 Ricardo Campello made already a pretty similar attempt, but after this attempt nobody managed to come close to Ricardo’s attempt, except Philip.
