Bear Pro Levanto 2011: Taylor Jensen Longboard Weltmeister

Podium Bear pro 2011
Der neue Longboard Weltmeister Taylor Jensen

Nach tagelangem Warten kamen endlich Wellen nach Italien. Auch wenn das Event nicht wie geplant in Levanto abgehalten werden konnte, gab es feine kleine Wellen in Andora, 180km nordwestlich von Levanto.

Der Gewinner des Bear Pro Longboard 2011 war kein geringerer als der Hawaiianer Kai Sallas, der den neuen Longboard Weltmeister Taylor Jensen im Finale besiegen konnte. Somit gab es ein doppeltes Fest… Video gibt es HIER

“I haven’t got it all in yet but I will feel pretty good tonight for sure,” so Jensen. “I was stressed out. I’ve been stressed out all week with running or not running so we got into the event and it is a relief. In the last couple of minutes he (Silvagni) needed a 9 and the conditions were tough. I mean Kai (Sallas) got a 9.5 in the heat before but it is very hard to get one. As long as I didn’t let him get a good wave I was okay. I just held on and it worked.”

Ausgelassen gefeiert wurden dann doch wieder in Levanto und man konnte die Erleichterung der Organisatoern und Surfer nach dem langen Warten spüren.
