FRRRIDAY NIGHT RELOADED!

Day 2 at the DAM-X Event

The second day at the Dam-X Event in Brouwersdam started a bit mellower with the wind slowly picking up in the morning, launching the double elimination of the European Freestyle Pro Tour for both men and women.

Local Davy Scheffers could fight his way up to face Sam Esteve from France next, leaving them a chance to climb on the podium. In the women’s double elimination, German Johanna Rümenapp and Lina Erzen from Slovenia will be facing each other next. Due to decreasing wind, the elimination has to be continued during the weekend, leaving six men and six women in the game.

The day went on with Jordy Vonk and Andrea Cucchi giving a clinic to prepare participants for the upcoming Furnace on Saturday, while the board sports & food market kicked off in the afternoon with the latest windsurf gear, fashion accessories, delicious snacks and drinks and other fun things to try out.

The freestyle pros pulled off an action packed tow-in session during sunset, followed by the opening of the popular Friday Night Event. Surrounded by live music, a DJ, little fire pits, food and drinks, DAM-X had prepared a spectacularly lit up night show with tow-in and flyboarding on the water and a gymnastics dance show on the dam, raising money for a local seal shelter.
