Day 2 just wrapped up at the 2012 PWA Sylt World Cup, and Philip Koster came out on top beating Victor Fernandez. The Heat was exciting with Victor Fernandez dominating early on, with great wave rides, but in the last minutes Koster came back with a nice wave 360 and one handed one footed back loop to take the lead, and win the single.
ON the losers side, Ricardo Campello dominated over Alex Mussoline. Ricardo’s aggressive style had him throw many more jumps, including his signature onehanded one footed forward, he’s currently the guy doing this. Ricardo jumping ability put him in the lead over Mussolini who showed some nice wave rides, with tackas and a nice downwind 360.
