With more than 5,000 spectators and a stunning light show, it was to be the turn of Taty Frans to reach the very top of the PWA Sylt podium during the night tow-in show supported by Philips.

Conditions clearly proved tricky for the top 12 tow-in specialists who gained their spaces in this night final through a qualification round earlier in the week. With €4000 up for grabs but a very lumpy sea state and less than favourable wind direction the riders struggled in the earlier runs to stick some solid moves. However, it was to be the best till last as the three who qualified; Steven Van Broeckhoven, Gollito Estredo and Taty Frans stuck three impressive moves in the final, took 3rd, 2nd and 1st respectively.
