Monteiro and Jones win the wave single elimination at Sylt

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Mitu Monteiro at SyltMitu Monteiro (CAV, F-One) and Kristy Jones (GBR, North) win the single elimination of the Kite Masters in Sylt. After a long day with heavy wind and rain showers, Monteiro defeated Jan Marcos Rivera (DOM, Star Kites) with Jesse Richman (USA, Cabrinha) in third, and Jones kept clear ahead of Kari Schibevaag (NOR, Ozone) and Ainhoa Garcia (ESP, Airush).

The day started with the usual skippers meeting at 10:00 hours, and the draw of the heats. The wind picked up and competition was started around 10:30. Already during the pre-qualification rounds the waves were building up nicely, and with the incoming tide in the afternoon the conditions were almost perfect.

From the quarter finals on, some riders were even able to show tube rides, and it came down between the radical stlye with hard cutbacks and the pure surfing style. Once more, Monteiro proved to be the master of the waves.

Taking advantage of the almost longest day of the year, the double elimination has been started directly after the finals and continues till late in the evening.
