On Day 2 in Tarifa, the wind blew the riders into action right away as the riders began to set up their quivers and were blasting their zone-in playlist upon arrival. Although the wind was nuking beyond expectations, bearing in mind this was a Freestyle competition the judges tried to maintain the Freestyle element as primary as they continued with the Mixed format applied from the previous day at first (7 trick attempts, best 4 counting: 2 Freestyle 2 Big Air tricks). Nico Franco (ESP) and Robin Goetgebeurg (BEL) had a particularly tough time in the first heat of the day. The gust must have blown Franco’s confidence we experienced the previous day out of his system as he failed to land any of his tricks! Lorenzo Calcano (DOM) managed to keep his head together as he landed 5 of his 7 attempts relatively smoothly. France must have prepared Julian Krikken (FRA) well for these conditions as he managed to pull most of his tricks with that extra ‘umf’ he needed to score the winning points. In the women's competition, straight into the action as they head out to the battlefield after that. Claudia Leon (ESP) rode that excitement straight into the water, kicking off the women’s division with a banging total score of 15.08! Following that Nathalie Lambrecht (SWE) faced intimidating Kajiya (BRA) unfortunately only managing to land one of her tricks. This made it easier for Kajiya to wipe her out of this round fly up the ladder. Heat 5 was a thrilling one, as our three queens Rita Arnaus (ESP), Paula Novotna (CZE), and Hannah Whiteley (GBR), all known for pushing the girl's level higher put on a show! Mikaili Sol (BRA) our youngest Woman on tour wrapped up the Women’s action for the day, once again demonstrating that there was no age limit for sending it. Her first time on the water of the day, she warmed up with her first two trick attempts. By the thirds and fourth, you could tell she was comfortable, but no one was ready for her HUGE Frontroll Board off she had been keeping for us in her back pocket scoring a solid 8.
