Day 5: Fernandez and Iballa Moreno take crowns in thrilling Super Session Finales

Only the winners’ finals remained on the fifth day of the Tenerife PWA World Cup and both the men’s and women’s fleets went the distance with Daida Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / North / MFC / Shamal Sunglasses) defeating Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC), respectively, to set up a mouthwatering Super Final show down.

Women’s
Double Elimination
Daida Moreno forced a Super Final after the Final went all the way, but eventually it was Daida who managed to come out on top by less than 0.5 a point. Daida was looking for her 4th victory here in a row, while Iballa was on the hunt for her first event title in Tenerife since 2012.

Super Final

Into the Super Final and it was Iballa who made a flying start to the decider as the reigning world champion quickly landed a clean pushloop and a big, perfectly executed backloop. However, after such a positive start to the heat, Iballa, then struggled to show the same flow in the waves as she had done earlier in the week, which opened the door for Daida to strike back, which she duly did with an excellent backloop and two solid waves. For a long time it looked as though Daida would stage an immaculate recovery, but towards the end of the Super Final, Iballa, found her form. Earlier in the heat, Iballa, had always showed excellent wave selection, but could not execute the waveriding that she is capable of as she looked overpowered. However, in the final few minutes Iballa was able to show off her true wave riding capabilities as she landed several fluid vert hits to turn the tie on its head. Daida, responded with a fully planing table top forward, but it wasn’t enough as Iballa claimed victory in Tenerife.

At this stage of the season, Daida, holds a narrow title race lead and it promises to be another intriguing battle between the Moreno twins for this year’s title.

Men’s

Double Elimination

Victor Fernandez and Marcilio Browne went all out in the winners’ final and they were inseparable for much of the heat as they went move for move and wave for wave. However, it was Fernandez, who managed to also force the men’s division into a decider as he claimed victory by under a point in Heat 35.

Super Final

Having over rotated and under rotated a double forward in the heat prior, Fernandez, made no mistake at the start of this heat as he landed a massive, clean double forward to earn 9.65 points to immediately place the pressure on Browne. The 2013 world champion landed a superb double forward of his own before edging ahead after landing a goiter. However, Fernandez, was waiting on the wave behind and unleashed a better goiter of his own before finding a ramp down by the bunker to launch into a huge one-footed backloop. At this point, Browne, knew he was under pressure and he searched desperately for a pushloop forward ramp, but never found it. Browne landed a tweaked pushloop, but with Fernandez on fire in the air and on the wave — as the Spaniard had been all week — the Brazilian was powerless to stop Fernandez from claiming back-to-back victories in Tenerife, while Fernandez also maintains his perfect start to the season after also securing victory in Pozo. Browne though can still be delighted at the end of his weeks work and he will leave Tenerife with his best result so far.
After the completion of the main draw the Youth’s Finals were completed, which saw Liam Dunkerbeck (Starboard / Severne) come back to claim victory in the 12 year olds division, while Marino Gil (Goya Windsurfing) claimed a narrow victory in the 12-15 year olds fleet over Valentino Pasquale (Fanatic / North / MFC). Meanwhile, Loick Lesauvage (Goya Windsurfing) was able to back up his earlier victory here with another victory today to defeat Noah Vocker Roche (Fanatic / NorthSails / Maui Ultra Fins) in the 16-18 year old category.
With the main event and youth’s complete the final thing on the agenda today was deciding who would take the top 10 places in the Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge Siam Park Pool Super Session – with a separate super session. The action went off with one-footed pushloops, shiftys and huge one-hand, one-foot backloops being landed and the top 10 sailors will now meet in Sunday’s Grand Finale.
