Connor Baxter wins the World Series Sprints on Day 1 in Alagoas

Connor Baxter wins the World Series Sprints on Day 1 in Alagoas
In another intense battle of the Titans, Connor Baxter (Starboard) and Kai Lenny (Naish) picked up where they left off last year with another battle for the ages. Connor led through the first leg, but Kai managed to catch him on the second buoy in the surf. Connor however succeeded in keeping the lead as they both battled around the next 2 buoys and into the home straight. However, an incoming swell allowed Kai to pull up neck and neck to Connor coming up the beach, with a dramatic sprint to the finish that saw Connor just get the better of Kai – a great start to what is destined to be another incredibly competitive year.

However, it was not just a Connor vs Kai battle, Jake Jenson (Fanatic) and Zane Schweitzer (Starboard) were right on their heels, with Jake just getting the better of Zane on the home straight to take 3rd and Zane, 4th. In 5th, it was the Viking Casper Steinfath (Naish).

So a dramatic day of action, as we regroup and get ready for an exciting long distance race that will kick off at 2pm Brazil time for the Pros, after a full morning of racing for amateurs, youth and entry level enthusiasts.
