Our freestyle team flew over to Bonaire to compete on the PWA World Tour for the first time this year and they put on a show. Italian team rider Giovanni Passani had a great start into the event and made use of the extremely flat water to climb up the ladder and finish on an impressive fifth place after the double elimination. The start of the event wasn’t as good for Davy Scheffers and Antony Ruenes, but they unfolded their potential in the double and won heat after heat, finishing the world up on the sixth (Antony) and seventh (Davy) spot.
Nic Hibdige had some impressive heats before he had to face his teammate Davy early in the double elimination, finishing the PWA event on Bonaire on a good 13th place. Our young and very talented team rider Takuma Sugi from Japan also flew to Bonaire and performed impressively during his heats.
After seeing great performances of the freestylers on Bonaire, we can’t wait to follow our racing team during the first PWA slalom event in Marignane, France from April 17th to 22nd.
