Word, María ! 😊😎
About the PWA in Morocco <sorry, long post!) 😅
I used to go to Morocco in the summers, I loved it. Now there was more than 5 years that I didn't go again.... After a few months enjoying the winter swells in Cadiz, Tom and I were ready for a road trip in Morocco.
We were planing to compete in the IWT , which was already a very exciting plan, but suddenly, I got a mail confirming that the event was going to be a only women PWA event, meaning that a lot of women (super women! And very good friends 💜) were going to join!
The news was completely unexpected and a very special moment for the windsurfing women community, as most of the times, if there is only one gender competing, it is men. So, I think for the first time (or at least in a while), it was going to be an only women wave world Cup! For once, the organization decided to make it happen only for women. We are all super grateful to @boujmaaguilloul to make it possible and support our fleet.
A lot of the best wave women and some of the best freestylers from all around the world joined the adventure to compete in Moulay. It would have been great to have some Moroccan women competing, but I am sure it was a good inspiration and show and that there will be some new faces in the next editions of this event and am sure that this was a good example for other event organizers that only want to host men...
The atmosphere in and out of the water was great! More than ever I know we are a big family, and during this trip I think we got to know each other better. Even if we compete together, we care, support, push our limits together and encourage each other to get better. I am so grateful to have the chance to be part of this amazing group.
Morocco was beautiful and clean, with all these colors and markets, and as usual, the most friendly people! Everyone was happy to speak and share It was a lot more developed than my last visit, I was impressed, but it keeps its authenticity. Essaouira is so pretty!
During the competition, we had some of the craziest big days I have seen in my life! (with some of the craziest riders surfing out there water monsters! Like Boujma, Soufian, Taka or Emi!
But we were lucky to have a day with perfect conditions to compete! A little bit too light, but awesome clean perfect waves! I have to say I really enjoyed sailing during my heats! How awesome is having the spot just for 4 people!! The girls were all sailing amazing and the final was super impressive to watch!! It was a great show!
I ended 5th and I am stoked! The level was high and the light winds made it difficult, so I am very happy with my performance in this limit conditions!
I want to thank once again Boujma and his team to make this happen, to organize it so well and pretty (the set up at the beach was so cool!) and to Moulay and Essaouira to host us and make everything nice for us.
I want to say congratulations to the winners of all IWT disciplines and specially to the girls
I really wish we could all meet more often!! Love you all 💜 pwa/iwt girls

PWA ticker: "A huge congratulations to Iballa Moreno, who takes down the single elimination ahead of Sarah-Quita Offringa, Daida Moreno and Lina Erpenstein. The reigning world champion looked extremely dangerous from the word go today and after biding her time in the final she walks away with top spot heading into big Wednesday. Congratulations to all the girls today for a great performance in challenging conditions."
