JP Aloha Classic PWA World Cup - Roediger clinches title

Ho’okipa Beach Park delivered the goods for the second successive day of the JP Aloha Classic. The wind started to build very early on again and with the waves still kicking around the AWT Pros Fleet resumed just after 10:30am.
The conditions today were slightly more challenging - especially to begin with - due to lighter winds and more time between the sets - meaning that patience and wave selection was crucial in order to advance. After another full day of competition Bernd Roediger (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing) eventually came out on top in the AWT

Final


The center piece of the day saw the heat duration extended to twenty minutes - rather than the sixteen minutes in the earlier rounds - and it was a sight to behold as Bernd Roediger, Levi Siver (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing), Keith Teboul (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing / MFC) and Camille Juban (Quatro / MauiSails / MFC) put on a scintillating display of sailing, which saw the winner clinch the victory by half a point. The extremely close decision was between Siver and Roediger who went blow-for-blow with each other for the entire twenty minutes. In the end Roediger did just enough to come out on top as he landed an amazing air taka and a solid hack on his second wave, before later adding several waves with super stylish aerials combined with a head throw to impress both the judges and a packed out crowd.

Siver in the meantime was boosting trademark tweaked aerials at will, together with his irresistible surf-esque style on the wave. The American also landed an exquisite frontside wave 360 - landing out in the flats - but unfortunately for him it wasn’t quite enough and he’ll now have to wait until the PWA main draw begins to exact revenge. Camille Juban finished in third place, whilst Keith Teboul claimed fourth respectively.

Elsewhere Graham Ezzy (Quatro) produced more fantastic sailing today, but just missed out on a place in the final. The American landed an effortless taka, frontside wave 360 and a goiter in one heat to show that he really meant business, but unfortunately he couldn’t produce the same performance in the semifinals. However, Ezzy booked his place in the PWA main draw and has already shown that he will be a major threat and one sailor to watch very carefully over the coming days.

Matt Pritchard (Tabou / Gaastra) and Kevin Pritchard (Starboard / MFC) also sailed extremely well today as they demonstrated their expert local knowledge of Ho’okipa to pick out the best waves before unleashing powerful cutbacks and brilliant one-handed aerials. The brilliant brother’s made it all the way to the semifinals before both narrowly missing out in a place in the final. Just like Ezzy though we will see them both later in the event again and either one of them are more than capable of going all the way.

All but two spots have now been decided for the PWA main draw and to decide who clinches the last two places there will be a four man sail off with the top two advancing, which will be completed as soon as the conditions allow.

The forecast for tomorrow doesn’t look as promising as the last two days, but anything can happen. The skippers’ meeting has been called for 10am with the action commencing from 10:30am, if conditions allow. Don’t miss any of the fantastic action by tuning into ww.pwaworldtour.com, where you’ll be able to follow the livestream.
