World cup no. 3 – Thun

The last World cup was situated in Thun ( CH ) , where the World championship at 2009 should be. Thun is one of the most beautiful city where I ever was, there are many channels and in one of them after the dam gates was the play spot. We came there at Monday morning , slept little and wait until Simon the main organisator build the wave. At the first day of surfing , I didn’t feel the wave and I wasn’t glad with my effort , I didn't surf wave long time. Nina didn’t paddle because she was sick and eating the antibiotics. Next days it starts to work better for me. The eddy was so full whole day and the best chance to train was during the night or early morning. The competition started at Thursday with all categories except men category. Nina couldn’t train much before , but still when I saw her at the trainings she was doing well , on the qualification she couldn’t set up on the wave and flush. She came on the place 17.

Nina was almost queen of the wave

Next day was the quarterfinals and semifinals for each category . I am thinking that the semis are sometimes more harder as the finals and every paddler is trying as hard as possible. The results from this days should be on the http://www.riverjam.ch/
