KPWT Wavemasters Portugal

Sometimes things simply don’t work out as expected. Incredible, a whole week at one of the windiest places on earth and still no real results at the KPWT Wavemasters 2007 in Guincho, Portugal. Not that unusual afterall, I simply call it: the ’typical competition dilemma’ as in: no matter which spot and how ’reliable’ it normally is as soon as a competition hits off, the wind, waves dissapear…

In the female division, we managed to complete the semi-finals, in which I also managed to worked my way up into. The conditions were really on the edge of ’do-able’ with max. 10 knots and choppy sea, however, the organisation still decided to give it a go pushing it to the max in order to get some results.
