Ocean Spirit on my mind
by Steve Farthing
Report No 11


The World Waveski Titles finally got underway today at Praia do Navio. The conditions were challenging for the open qualifying rounds and the Masters division with powerful 6 ft sets rolling through . Pablo Arrouays and Mathieu Jonneaux were outstanding but for me the highlight had to be Italian Stefano Bellotti. A top rated surf Kayaker who has only ridden a waveski a handful of times, first heat, first wave of the event takes on a bomb set launches into the air and lands a massive aerial, 7.5 , Go Italy!

The Masters also got their chance today. Blair Moore and Lance Milnes did not disappoint with solid performances . In a surprise upset, former Champion Kieran Davies was relegated to the rep round, and I just pipped Thierry Mouraud in a close one in the last heat of the day.

Honorable mentions should out to Melissa Hardy the only female to take on the tough surf conditions and Jeff Munson, a disabled rider who progressed through both his heats.

6:30 am start tomorrow with the seeded heats and other age divisions. Until tomorrow, Ocean Spirit on my mind.
