With the JP Aloha Classic PWA World Cup having been concluded yesterday, with Levi Siver (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing / MFC) winning the event and Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC) being crowned the PWA Wave World Champion for the first time in his career, today saw the AWT fleets return to action.

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.

AWT Youths
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.

Tomorrow should see the conclusion of the AWT competition too, if you’d like to follow the action then be sure to tune into the AWT Facebook page here.

Racers were treated with fifteen to twenty knot winds, flat water, blue skies, and the beautiful backdrop of Isle Mauritius in view. For Frenchman Nico Parlier today’s performance probably has him pondering certain thoughts of champagne. After coming off a regatta victory in San Francisco and then winning all five of today’s races Parlier looks to be the top gun on the tour at the moment.
