As the partially sunny early afternoon advanced, conditions became more gusty and they were difficult for the Overall Windsurf Category with very light winds on the inside and closed out waves on the outside. Zane Schweitzer, from a Hawaiian family that invented modern windsurfing, Samuel Perez Hults, the 2020 Dominican Olympic hopeful, and legendary Brian "Actionman" Talma all placed first in their respective windsurfing heats with solid wave riding. Anthony Collar from Spain made a remarkable comeback placing 3rd in his 1st heat, then 2nd in his 2nd heat and then making it into the semi-finals with Zane Schweitzer, Samuel Perez Hults, Brian Talma and Christopher Buenger! The crowd really got a kick out of his exemplary resilience! Our waterwoman from Estonia, Maarja Kivistik, made an admirable effort, despite the ocean's many challenges, coming in 3rd in her heat.
