Aterra Wave Challenge 2012 report

Posted by aterrakayak på 16 juli 2012

AWC is over and we got ok winds around 6 m/s. The weather guys told us rain but it was a sunny day. For me i had hoped for more wind and a messy racetrack. But the track was ok and as soon we had rounded the E4 bouyo we had small waves to surf in. I had a pretty good start (11-12 at the E4) and felt that i could go as hard that i can but got a bit punnished later when i got a bit boored in the small waves so the ones that should be front of me passed me one by one. I started to drag my self longer and longer out to catch some nicer swell and it worked my confidence come back to me and i started to hunt again. Also Lennart Olsson used the same line and when i have catched him up we had fantastic runs in the nice waves, sometimes he got away from me and sometimes it was the other way around, yeaaah this was a fun race. I felt pretty strong and when we had a km to the Svinabådan lighthouse i new in my mind that i gonna be the first of us there. So some hundred meters before i gave it all and i think i got some meters, i needed that because after Svinabådan it was no more dw. Just before the turn Pedro Pontes came on the inside and as i had a better line i could a bit easy take another position. Now it was only 1600 m left and i tried to concentrate on the technique and i felt that they cant catch me again. But with just 500 m to the finnish line i saw them on my inside, first Pedro and Lennart chasing. Damn i have to go hard and i did what i could but Pedro was to fast for me and he passed me just before the finnish line. What a fun race, i give a big thanks to Lennart and Pedro for the fighting!

The start was a bit caotic and we have to have a better soloution next year, Jacob Holst was the fastest to the E4 bouyo but after the turn Tommy passed him and as he said ” i never looked back i just did my own race and i never felt the pressure from the others”. Joao passed Jacob also but in the end Jacob was the stronger of them. Martin, Fredrik and Johan was also fighting the race through. So the race was pretty tight and the ones that have stoped and looked in Domsten were we are pretty close was impressed of the speed of the skis, specially Tommys… 😉
