On the penultimate day of the PWA KIA Cold Hawaii World Cup, the superstars of the wave sailing world delivered a stunning display, as the City Lift Super Session took place at 1pm. Light starboard tack winds and small waves provided ideal conditions for the competition, as three heats were run before the final, with the top two men from each heat advancing.

The super session final consisted of three English sailors, John Skye (RRD / Mystic / MFC), Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins), Jamie Hancock (Tabou / Gaastra), the Brazilian boys Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC) and Kauli Seadi (JP / NeilPryde), and finally Spain’s, Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / North).

In the light winds and difficult jumping conditions Victor Fernandez was able to gain an early lead as he landed a tabletop forward, however his lead was short lived as Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne landed an amazing air chachoo. The Brazilian then went one better as he rotated his way through an outstanding one footed backloop to cement his place at the top. Browne’s fellow countryman, Kauli Seadi, completed the top three as he also landed a brilliant air chachoo to wow the crowds on the beach. The deteriorating wind in the final minutes of the heat meant that none of the sailors were able to land any more moves, and Marcilio Browne was crowned the super session champion.

Marcilio Browne talking after his victory: 'It was a little bit tricky on the water today, but I managed to land my jumps right at the start, before the wind dropped. I’m happy that I was able to get my jumps in and claim the win.'

Victor Fernandez: 'I sailed a better heat before the final, it’s a shame the wind dropped after the first five minutes, but I’m still happy with my second place.'

Kauli Seadi: 'I’m stoked to have made the final, the conditions were tricky but it was a good challenge and it was fun.'

Results of the City Lift Super Session:
