Philip:"Being the World Champion is a dream come true"


We have warned time ago ... that Köster was windsurfing in a higher level than the rest of riders. And he has demonstrated. Yesterday was an exception; maybe he had not a great day or had not rigged the right sail and was probably overpowered. But today we have seen the best wave windsurfer in the world. First he has won Victor in the semifinals, with a planning double forward loop and a backside 360 and reverse on one wave.

In the final against Campello, he has been very good again, with a goiter on one hand and a taka. Campello had to resign and return to the beach to prepare for the super-final. But this time there were no surprises and Köster again has won with authority, getting the 2011 world championship, by winning the three competitions: Pozo Izquierdo, Tenerife and Kitmöller.

And he is only 17 years ... we have show for a while...

Congratulations Philip!
