Magic six for Sarah-Quita Offringa as Kiri Thode finally ends Gollito’s unbeaten run

The return of the PWA to the Netherlands for the first time in fifteen years proved to be a huge success as Brouwersdam produced a superb blend of conditions for the elite of the freestyle world. Anything from storm force winds combined with heavy rain, to glorious evening light with 20 knots and perfect flat water greeted the competitors over the course of the week. Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Gaastra / Mystic / Chris Benz / Maui Ultra Fins) proved once again that she is in a world of her own as she emphatically claimed her sixth PWA Freestyle world championship in a row. In the meantime Kiri Thode (Starboard / Gaastra) ended the reigning world champions - Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / North) - unbeaten record, as the Venezuelan tasted defeat for the first time since 2012 - but more importantly Thode claimed the event victory - his first since 2011 - to blow the title race wide open.
