2011 Tenerife World Cup
Planet Win 365 - Day six: The world’s most radical wave sailors descend on the Siam Water Park to showcase their skills on the extreme rides.
Lighter winds and smaller waves were forecast for the sixth day in Tenerife, providing the sailors with the perfect opportunity to have a day of rest and relaxation.
However with an invitation to the legendary Siam Water Park it proved difficult for many of the sailors to say no. Siam Water Park opened the doors to seventy of the elite sailors and their guests to spend the afternoon riding their awesome rides or to sit and soak up the sun by the pool.
The afternoon also provided the super-session winner’s the perfect opportunity to claim their prize of a two hour private surfing session in the incredible artificial wave pool.
Siam Park boasts the largest artificial wave in the world reaching a record 3 meters high. The wave pool is fully customisable allowing the operator to decide whether the wave is a left or right hander and choose the size of the waves.
With a group of the world’s most competitive windsurfers it wasn’t long before the sailors were charging around the pool in a bid to outdo each other.
Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Simmer / MFC), Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC) and Victor Fernanadez Lopez (Fanatic / North / MFC) proved that they weren’t just windsurfing talents tearing up the artificial wave with their slick top turns.
After a few practice runs Iballa Ruano Moreno (Starboard / Severne) and Nayra Alonso (Starboard / Severne) were up and running and they ripped the wave to pieces for the crowds.
Wave of the Day
The wave of the day has to go to Kauli Seadi (JP / NeilPryde) as he brought the fluidity from his windsurfing into the wave pool, working the wave with a clean set of linked turns all the way to the shore line.
This evening the sailors will be treated to a meal in the mountains to re-fuel after an action packed day.
