Iballa Ruano Moreno writes windsurfing history at Pozo
Philip Köster and Iballa Ruano Moreno have conquered the 2012 PWA Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival, in absolutely epic conditions, as the wind rose above 50 knots.
Iballa Moreno became the first person to defeat her sister, Daida, in Pozo, since 1999. The prize giving ceremony that followed was a hugely emotional affair as the twins celebrated the success of the event as well.
The double elimination winners' final once again saw Philip Köster taking on Victor Fernandez. The final, fittingly, proved to be one of the heats of the contest as both men saved their best until last.
Köster came out with all guns blazing right from the word go as he launched into a massive double forward directly in front of the judges. Fernandez didn't have the ideal start as he fell on a stalled forward, however after a quick equipment change he was soon back out and absolutely ripping.
