40+ knots in Pozo

Day 6 was definitely the windiest day so far. We got gusts with more than 45 knots on the slalom course. I was on my 5,4 and the iSonic 86 with a 32 cm Canfire. The gear worked great and it was an awesome challenge with the nature.

In race 13 I fought very hard for the 6th position with Gonzalo. Because of a very delayed start I had to follow the fleet, but could win meters. In th eend I finished 7th in the firts heat. Not enough to advance, but the speed felt really ok.

In the second race of the day I was on 6th position and tried to attack the guy in 5th. A massive gusts catched me and took me off the board. I was close to fight for the 5th position, but crashed too hard and lost my good position.

Tomorrow there is a chance to go for one more Slalom race.
