In the youth division Casey Rehrer (MauiSails) excelled to capture the youth title ahead of Harley Stone (Naish), whilst a further five and eleven heats were completed in the masters and amateurs respectively.
The youths once again showed that the future of windsurfing looks bright as Casey Rehrer, Harley Stone, Fiona Wylde (Sailworks) and Tom Juban (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing) all produced fantastic performances in a fiercely contested final. Rehrer though was a cut above the rest as he combined powerful, gouging turns and perfectly timed aerials off the critical section to claim the victory. The sixteen year old also demonstrated his aerial prowess as he planed out of a forward loop, even though no jumps were to count. Stone finished just behind him in second place after showing excellent wave selection and execution as he connected several fluid linking turns. As the only female in the final, Wylde, showed she’s a force to be reckoned with as she combined big, powerful hits with a nicely controlled aerial to claim third place ahead of Tom Juban, who also put together some solid waves.
In the masters Sean Aiken (Quatro / Naish) and Jeff Henderson (Hot Sails Maui) were the stand out sailors.
