A big congratulations to Victor Fernandez and Jaeger Stone for their 1st and 2nd places at the PWA Tenerife event.
"Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone / Shamal Sunglasses) successfully defended his single elimination crown by defeating Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX / Shamal Sunglasses), which means Fernandez shoots to the top of the overall rankings. The Spaniard immediately placed Stone under pressure by landing a massive double forward, which was made even more impressive given the lighter winds, to earn 8.45 points. And from there the two-time world champion never looked back and will now head into Sylt with destiny in his own hands as he bids to win world title No.3.
Jaeger Stone fought his way back from 4th in the Single Elimination to 2nd today as he firstly defeated Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards / Point-7) with a big and stylish one-hand, one-foot backloop, while looking in sync with the waves and consistently blowing out the fins.
Having defeated Campello, Stone then produced the highest scoring heat of the day in Heat 50 against Adam Lewis (Fanatic / Duotone / SWOX) - 20.56 points - as the Australian landed a massive one-hand, one-foot backloop while looking extremely calm and relaxed - almost looking like he was free sailing at times such was his flow at that stage. Stone earned wave scores of 7.62 and 6.12 points - linking vertical stylish turns with a taka to take down the Brit and move into 2nd place. During those couple of heats Stone looked like he couldn’t put a foot wrong, but with the tide and conditions changing he couldn’t quite sustain that level of performance against Fernandez. Stone will still be happy to have earned his first podium since Sylt 2016."
