06 Feb 23.08. – Nico Parlier from France is the new foil king of Fehmarn
Nico Parlier is the winner of the Foil competitions at the Mercedes-Benz Kitesurf World Cup Fehmarn (no official discipline of Mercedes-Benz Kitesurf World Cup). The Frenchman could win seven of twelve races, and win the only Tourstop of the HydroFoil Pro Tour in Germany.
The best German racer has been Florina Gruber, who reached the fifth place. The 23-year-old fought throughout the competition with the floating seagrass in the Baltic Sea, which kept putting him out of action. “A pity that I drove through the floating seagrass otherwise I may be able to have reached a place at the podium. Anyway I am very satisfied with my result”, said the Bavarien. Jannis Maus, from Oldenburg, ended up 10th.
