2022 PWA WAVE Vice World Champion!

Sylt conditions are very challenging. You have to fight against not only your competition, but also strong current, cold weather and brutally dumpy shore-break. This combined with 40knots of wind this year made for some spectacular action delivered in the wave discipline by both men and women.

Sylt was the last event of the year that determined 2022 World Titles. The huge crowds on the beach (around 200.000 people visited the competition site throughout the 10 days!) and live streaming of the heats really made me feel the pressure!

I'm so happy that I managed to sail decent and secure the 2022 PWA WAVE VICE WORLD CHAMPION for the first time (missing out on 1st place by one heat)!

Big congratulations to Sarah-Quita Offringa for the World Champion title and Lina Erpenstein for her first overall podium 👏👏 as well as to all the other rippers who pushed so hard this year 🙌

Shoutout to Marcillio Brown for taking the Wave World Title this year and Philip Koester and Victor Fernandez for 2nd and 3rd overall 🍾

Sylt competition this year:

Rough seas and strong winds made for en epic Sylt competition. We got 40knots side shore weather with decent waves. This year it also felt quite warm due to south wind - I think we had 12*C on the competition day!

I was super happy to make the final and get second in the single elimination with everyone ripping out there 🥈🤩 Big congrats to all 💃❤️

Massive thank you goes to @dr_windsurf and Rena for help
