Holly Kennedy News:European Championships Round 1 Podersdorf

Written by Holly Kennedy on . Posted in Riders News

What can I say!?

So many things went on at this great event! The weather was very mixed with sun and no wind combined with strong winds and rain. We got the competition done, so that was the main thing :)

In the Single elimination I had 2 of my best heats landing all my best tricks :) For place 4 and 3 , the wind completely dropped so I took my 12m Vegas. We were put on hold for a while then the wind filled in and we commenced. However, by this time I was pretty overpowered on my 12 and did not have time to change. I crashed a few times therefor I end up 4th.

I am still very happy with that result :) All the girls now are really pushing the level which is SUPER :)

In the double elimination the wind was very strong and offshore. The heat area was out in the middle of the lake! My friend and North team mate Sabrina came up against me, we were both powered on our 9m vegas’s! The heat was fun! I ended up with a 5th place overall for this event.

I’m ready to take on the next event with great determination ! :)

The parties were AWESOME too!

Thank you to all the sponsors that made the event happen
