Sail-World.com : JP Aloha Classic PWA World Cup - Team celebrates an epic day of action
JP Aloha Classic PWA World Cup - Team celebrates an epic day of action


'Following the conclusion of the AWT Pro heats Camille Juban is confirmed as 2013 Tour Champion.'    Si Crowther / AWT

In the JP Aloha Classic PWA World Cup, following yesterday's epic day of action, dominated by the Quatro team, it was only fitting that the planned party was to be hosted at the Quatro/Goya/MFC shop. Riders enjoyed good food, music, and discussed the day’s action over a few beers.

With all but two of the PWA wildcards decided, there was a good deal of speculation about possible match-ups and crunch heats. The JP Aloha Classic is set to be one of the most radical wave sailing contests of all time.

The forecast for Saturday had been poor, but hopes were raised as the local forecast changed and predicted 15 knots of wind and four foot surf. This gave hope for more action without a break. Unfortunately, as riders and judges arrived at Ho’okipa, hopes faded quickly. Despite a building breeze it was decided to call a lay day, and release all fleets at 11am.

Casey has been pushing his limits, event after event! -  Si Crowther - AWT  

Luckily there is more to Maui than windsurfing, and riders spent the day surfing, mountain biking, playing golf or simply catching up on work and rest. With the light winds and warm weather, it was an amazing day to relax on the beach and soak up the beauty of the island.

With a similar for Sunday, it looks like we are unlikely to see a return to action until at least Monday. Mast high surf, and solid winds are expected to hit Maui’s north shore in preparation for the ‘Clash of the Titans,’ as the best from the AWT go head to head with the best from the PWA. Be sure to have your computer tuned into the live cast ,and with first round match ups like Kauli Seadi vs. Kevin Pritchard, Bernd Roediger vs. Francisco Goya and Robby Naish vs. Flo Jung the action is going to be intense right from the start, and it will be interesting to see how much local knowledge will play a part when and if the big sets roll in.

With this being the final event in the 2013 AWT Calendar we can now confirm the Pro rankings for the year. We have seen some amazing heats across six events in three different countries, and once again it is Camille Juban (Maui Sails, Quatro) who takes the crown with Kevin Pritchard climbing to second, and Bernd Roediger finishing in third overall.

Russ balances time on the AWT with work for Hi-Tech Maui. -  Si Crowther - AWT  

Many riders have made a big impact on Tour in 2013, and special note should go to Casey Hauser (Maui Sails, Makani FIns) who climbed nine spots from 17th in 2012 to eighth in 2013 and Russ Faurot (Ezzy Sails, Black Project Fins) who rose from 10th last year to an impressive sixth overall in 2013. It is performances like these, which give motivation to other riders and provide proof that training and hard work can lead to rapid progression.
