PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup - Shock lingers for Marcilio Browne + Video

The 2013 PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup windsurfing champion, Marcilio 'Brawzinho' Browne, was still shock on Monday after his surprise victory over the double world champion, Philip Köster, on Sunday. Browne was the fourth different winner in the four years of competition in Klitmøller, underlining the status of Cold Hawaii as the most open and exciting stop on the world cup tour.

'For me it’s my childhood dream, I never thought this would happen,' Browne, the 24-year-old Brazilian, said. 'Sometimes I thought I was wasting my time. It felt like in this last couple of years I had some close heats that I lost.

'I really thought I didn’t win, because I didn’t see him sailing and I was so happy for second,' 'For me to win it is unbelievable, especially in conditions like this. I never got better than ninth here. At some points I was like; ‘man, maybe I should try to get a starboard tack jump’ because it so onshore but I couldn’t quite get the speed. I got really angry but I’m pleased I got one (big double forward jump, which sealed the victory). I couldn’t see Philip and then I thought it is hard out here so maybe he’s finding it hard too, so I just had to get some points on the board and hope.'

Duncan Coombs, the PWA head judge, said that talent of Browne, who was making his first appearance in the final, had been evident for many years.

'We’ve known for a long time how good he is,' Coombs said. 'He came onto the scene years ago and he’s the best free sailor there is but he’s never been able to put it all together in competition. You could see how emotional he was on the podium when he found out. I think a lot of people were.

'It’s not easy against Köster (the 19-year-old German prodigy), he is a machine. But I think he finds conditions difficult here. It’s not his home spot and he probably doesn’t train here. It’s probably the place he is most vulnerable but also perhaps Sylt. It’s difficult when the wind goes onshore like that, the waves jack up pretty much all over the place, you get multiple swells. I don’t think we’ve seen so many heats go down to the wire on the tour. Pretty anyone in the last 16 was dangerous.

'The thing is with Köster in the jumps he’s pretty much unbeatable but in the wave riding yesterday the difference in the final was that he was carrying only a 2.8 for his second wave. That’s why he lost.'

'But we have to remember Köster was second. He is the man to beat, he has a first and second in the PWA world tour so far this year and is way ahead in first place now. It’s just the expectation on him is so high.'

The wind continued to blow in Klitmøller yesterday, the North Sea waves rolled in and the current pulled across the musselreef and there was time for Robert Sand, the Cold Hawaii, event manager and a former PWA tour windsurfer who lives and learned to windsurf in Klimøller, to reflect on another emotional event in his hometown.



'I am really happy we got a result on Sunday, it’s been tantalising week here waiting. I’m very happy to see Brawzinho on top, it’s his first win on the tour and it’s great to see a new name.'

'We’ve had two first time winner here and four different winners in four years and it means all the guys are excited to come here because they know they have a chance.

'It’s also quite unusual to have four world cup events in a row with a result. With wind involved it is a huge uncertainty when you run an event, but Col d Hawaii has proved four times in succession what a great spot it is for windsurfing and surfing.'

For Sport Event Denmark, who have helped back the world cup dream, it is 'Klitmøller is Cold Hawaii, and this is due to the world cup,' Lars Lundov, CEO of Sport Event Denmark, said. 'Cold Hawaii has also made windsurfing in Denmark fly.'

Sand is already thinking a year ahead. 'We’re already working on Cold Hawaii and I’m sure there is going to be a fifth edition of the event.'
