Danish Championship Wave/Freestyle 2014

Danish Championships

From the 16th october – 18th october we had the Danish Wave/Freestyle Championships, and as usual it took place around the area of Cold Hawaii.

Two of Hot Sails Maui’s National team riders competed in Wave and Freestyle. We have had a talk with Andreas Larsen and Martin Løkkegaard about the competitions.

Martin and Andreas – Testing the conditions

Andreas Larsen competed in both wave and freestyle:

Thursday we scored really nice waves and northeasterly wind, at reef in Klitmøller. I was up against the living legend Lars Petersen, who knocked me out in the first round and we only had time for one single elimination, so that was it for me. Lars took the victory and can now once again call himself Danish Wave Champion. Congratulation!!

Friday we had no wind, but saturday we moved the competition area to Krik. A freestyle spot south of Klitmøller, but with the wind from south it made it really tricky and choppy condition. The wind was a bit up and down, but most of the day, we all sailed 4,4 – 5,0. It was a really nice day with a lot of action on the water. And through the 8 participants I could at the end claim my first windsurf victory, and the Danish Freestyle championships, which just made it even better!!

Martin Løkkegaard competed in wave:

I believe we all had a great time at the Danish Wave/Freestyle championships in Klitmøller this fall. Totally unexpected, the wind and waves arrived in Klitmøller and we ended up having some quite good starboard conditions for the wave part of the competition, which was awesome. 🙂

Klitmøller always seems to deliver the goods. Though I got knocked out in the first round, I went home with a lot of motivation and will be ready for 2015 🙂
