Celebrating 2 heat were even not performing my best I incorporate in the moves I had been training since the last year increasing my scoring on jumps. It is true that the waves riding has not been helping on the final score but I am aware of it considering how the evaluation was taken and what I failed on the waves.
My heat against Victor Fernandez was amazing! face to face with the winner of the event! He was throwing full powered waves 360 goiters doubles… he did his job and I did mine and I accepting that he is the top 3 guy from long time ago I tried to do the best and happy with it. My congratulations to him because he is a great example to follow as a rider and as a person as well. His consistency in the water performing incredibly stylish surf riding and even better on his jumping give me extra motivation to improve and keep learning in the water.

It has been a shame that for second year in a raw the conditions had been so far from the what the world expect from Pozo izquierdo… and for us, the people who came and spend so long time training here, disappointing, considering the effort done.
On the other hand the PWA keep this trials system and as we just did a single elimination, the people coming from the trials have a 15 minutes heat to show that they are better than the top 8 guys. Nothing is impossible but in my opinion we could push the single elimination before and performing the double elimination the last day and it would be much fair for all the competitors and a bigger show for the media, the event organizers, the visitors because, to let you know, during this days we did absolutely nothing apart of waiting for the green flag of the judges but this is Pozo and we had the conditions we sailed every single day although the conditions were "not suitable for the PWA criteria"
Now between Pozo and El Medano, Tenerife, I will keep training and sailing for the next event starting the 4th of August. Of course to try it again in the trials.
