Plenty of action going on here at the first PWA Freestyle event of the year…
EFPT Chiemsee Tow-In news
Last night saw the start of the first ever European Freestyle Tow-In championships. UK hopefuls Adam Sims and Phil Richards both missed out on the top spots for the final round on Monday night, however local superstar Max Mattissek showed he has what it takes and bounced his way into the final showdown, alongside Taty Frans and Nicolas Akgazciyan. Tonight will be the second round, in which, Max Rowe will be holding the flag for the Brits. Sitting here with Max, we’ve asked him a few quick questions:
Boards: Feeling nervous?
Max: A little bit nervous just because of so many people watching and feeling a little suspect after last night
Boards: You have two runs, what do you hope to nail?
Max: Burner and an air funnel into funnel
Boards: Who will be the ones most likely to take the top three?
Max: Gollito, Bjorn and me
Boards: Are you looking forward to sailing tomorrow and what are your aims for the competition?
Max: Pretty excited and hope it will be a little bit stronger and windier than what we had today.

The PWA Competition
With the lightest of winds across the course area, it was a waiting game today. However, early in the afternoon the first heats got underway but with only four heats completed by 6.30pm this evening, it was extremely on and off. With almost every heat seeing one, two or three re-starts, the patience of the riders and the judges was tested. With Adam Sims and Marco Wedele being in heat five, they saw the biggest waiting game of all. Eventually it was cancelled and this is where it will take off tomorrow. Check back soon for more…
