Gollito Estredo 1st, Adrien Bosson 6th
The NorthSails Freestyle team was shining at the Fuerteventura PWA Grand Slam 2017.
Event Winner: Gollito Estredo
Gollito makes a perfect start to defend his title with another incredibly stylish display of massive moves.
Winner´s Final: Gollito versus Vrieswijk is turning into the biggest rivalry in freestyle windsurfing and both sailors continue to raise the level as they continually push each other. The two of them produced another scintillating final today, but despite his best efforts, the Bonairean couldn’t deny the Venezuelan the opening victory of the season as the 7-time freestyle world champion makes the perfect start to his title defence. Both landed some massive moves with backloops, pushloops, air chachoos being thrown down as well as some crazy combos, but crucially Gollito exited his maneuvers cleanly, while Vrieswijk was left counting a wet air kabikuchi, while he couldn’t quite land his double air culo. So, it is advantage Gollito in the race for either 8 world titles or 1 world title.
6th place: Adrien Bosson
Adrien was definitely on form in the double elimination and was fighting his way through to a well deserved 6th place. He was eliminating an on form Tonky Frans in the last second of the heat and right after he took down Anthony Ruenes in the following round.
