Ms Terceira reflecting on her accomplishment said, “I must admit, I was completely focused on a clear round, not only for qualifying for the Pan Am’s but also for World Ranking Points & a placement in the class!”

“There was a lot of pressure as the previous days classes were cancelled due to poor weather conditions – so I wasn’t very confident with the sand surface – but when I realized Ursula was jumping well I dug deep & fought for a clear round! Our 5 years of experience together has paid off,” concluded Ms Terceira.
