  • Burusport Baltic Freestyle CUP last stage – Latvia from Teamvosa on Vimeo.

    The last and conclusive stage of Burusports Baltic freestyle cup took place in Riga, Ķīšezers lake on Saturday 11th of June.
    The forecast was solid for competition day and in reality the wind was even stronger. The wind build up as day proceed and riders switched the sails from 5.2 to 4.4 in the end.
    Unfortunately rain and low temperatures didn’t attract to many supporters on the coast. Despite the June air temperatures were only 11 degrees.
    About the competition format: heats were judged by one constant main judge and 2 judges from riders.
    Organisers was doing all to attack as many competitors as possible but unfortunately either there are no freestylers, or despite other factors, only 4 riders from 2 Baltic countries applied for the event.
    As wind was gusty main judge decided to give long heats of 15 minutes duration. PWA level rider Tony Motus EST-21 was on fire and landed such repertoire of explosive tricks as skopu, kono’s, culo’s both tacks, burners one handed into funnel.
    So deserved first place in single elimination and as he continued the same explosion in double, nobody was able to stop him from taking Latvian stage title.
    Second place went to Latvian rider Jevgeņijs Gavrilovs- LAT161,who secured himself overall title of Burusports Baltic Freestyle cup.
    The closest heat during event were between Maris Minkevics LAT1661 and Ain Harmson EST0. The level of riders were equal , the tricks similar, so the judges decided to organise resail of their heat in double elimination! And it was Ain Harmson who took the victory by small advantage and secured his stable 3rd place.
    The atmosphere during event was great. Windsurfing club 360 took care about the riders to stay warm and welcomed in their comfortable club’s building with sauna. Cabo cafe suppied with delicious lunch!!
