|05|04|2004 ||Kevin Mevissen gewinnt European Freestyle Pro Tour / Swiss Funboard Cup, Hyeres, 1.4. bis 4.4.2004|
|Report Day 4:|
As the wind came back on the last day of the competition, we could do all the missing eliminations from the first day.
The first heat was started at 2 p.m. showing a very hard battle between the young italien talent Matteo Guazzoni vs. Fabian Weber (Mistral / North Sails) from Germany. The winner of this heat was Matteo moving to the semi finals where he was facing another italien guy Andrea Rosati (JP).
Andrea had a very hard quarter final against a very strong and well performing Michael Rossmeier (F2 / Arrows). It was a very close decision but the better variety of the manoeuvres took the victory to Andrea.
The first semi final heat showed Kevin Mevissen (NP / JP) against Daniel Aeberli (F2 / North Sails). Both riders showed freestyle windsurfing in perfection, but again the variety and difficulty of the moves shown by Kevin took him to the final, where he was facing the Italian routinier Andrea Rosati (NP).
This was the best heat shown during the competition, Andrea showed all the new style moves coming up during the winter months and also his overall performance and style was outstanding. But if you are facing against Kevin Mevissen (NP / JP) you can never be sure what this young dutch guy can pull out of his manoeuvre bag. The difficulty and variety of the moves shown by Kevin on these day where absolutely unbelievable. He was like dancing with his quiver. So it was a very close but fair decision and Kevin took the title of the first event of the EFPT 2004.
In the losers final between Matteo Guazzoni and swiss rider Daniel Aeberli (F2 / North Sails), Matteo again showed a very strong performance and proved to be one of the best freestyle windsurfers within Europe. It is no doubt that this guy will be found more often in the top of the elimination ladders of this tour.
