The 17 year- old Moritz Mauch is one of the 12 sailors, who will do the trials at the PWA Gran Canaria Wind and Waves Festival in July 2013. We arrived yesterday and Moritz was on the water in Pozo to train for the qualification. The following video is an edit with action from the last weeks in Pozo. Moritz shows incredible skills in the difficult side onshore conditions.
Big Pozo wave riding action from 17year old Moritz Mauch
[…] The following highlight clip shows how early the riders and race crew had to show up at the beach on day 2 and how several riders had fun in the surf. Unfortunately there are no shots of the protagonists. Moritz Mauch is not shown in one single scene. For all of you, who are interested in his style, click on following clip […]
Wow! what is the move he does towards the word where is does a kind of flat spin?
Sick style, the cutbacks look just like surfing!! Now jumps of the same level and than the worldtour will get SUPER interesting with a lot of young talents coming up!!

But yeah maybe it is some bad coincidince on the video :p
sick to see a guy from GC who is focused on riding and pushing the limits with those air takas etc. what lift he gets on them is pretty rad!
