Colgate World Cup Sylt
The setting was chilly brisk Westerland Beach in Sylt Germany. Windsurf pros have long flocked to the windy cold shores of Sylt to compete for the final PWA event of each season. Full suits and small sails are usually the order of the day. Early on Sylt lacked the wind needed for a successful event but on day 3 it went off. Duncan Combs head judge called for single and double ladder eliminations. Bonaire was up. The one to watch was Gollito, last years Venezuelan. No stranger to Bonaire, Gollito is a crowd favorite hailing from El Yaque. Team Bonaire made it to the semi throwing Shakas and Back Loops. Kiri bested his team mate Nicolas French rival Akgazciyan who also rides for Starboard. Next he was up against Tonky in Single Ladder Eliminations. In the finals it was Taty against Kiri. The winner after scoring higher points in a very close heat was Taty Frans. 1,2,3, Bonaire dominates Sylt.
