Annissa aims to win Flowboarding Championship

Sydney born Annissa Flynn is hoping to go one better than her well deserved 2nd place in last year’s World Flowboard Championship (WFC) and take the top spot in 2016.

In the build up to the WFC 2016, Annissa, 18, last Saturday (Sept 3) took the Pro Women’s title in the 2nd round of the three-round Asian Flow Tour Thailand Qualifiers 2016 held at the Cartoon Network Amazone theme park in Pattaya, beating four other riders in the pro category.

This is a placed event where riders are put in the pro category by the organisers as per their official ranking.

Annissa, who is currently on a gap year after finishing her final year of studies at Satree School in Phuket Town where she was enrolled in the English Program, has already competed in the 1st and 2nd legs of the Flow Tour Thailand Qualifiers in Hua Hin and Pattaya respectively.

If she competes in the final-leg at the Flow House in Bangkok tomorrow (Sept 10), which she is scheduled to do, she automatically qualifies to compete in the Asian Tour Finals at Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia on Sept 16-17.

If she wins that event, which is highly possible, Annissa then gets to go the World Flowboard Championship to be held at Sentosa House in Singapore on Oct 27.

But it’s not only flowboarding that Annissa has been enjoying during her gap year, she has not long returned from a three-week surf safari in Banda Aceh and Pacitan in central Java.

She also competed in the ASC Tour of surfing (in Pacitan) where she came in 6th after being edged out by the eventual 3rd place winner in the first round of the competition.

Speaking to The Phuket News ahead of tomorrow’s event, Annissa said that she feels wonderful about winning last weeekend’s event in Pattaya and that she is both excited and nervous, not only about the 3rd leg, but also the world finals. Good luck Annissa!
