The PWA KIA @coldhawaii World Cup has some of the world's best windsurfers preparing for what will be an exciting and action-packed competition on the waters off of Klitmoller, Denmark. The competition is set to take place from the 12th-18th September.

Following on from the success of 2010’s nail biting competition, the PWA are returning to the ferocious shores of Klitmoller in Denmark for the men’s wave fleets third contest. Savage winds and fierce waves are brewing for the next stop on the 2011 men’s wave tour and forty-four of the world’s most talented wave riders are ready to fight it out on the tempestuous waters.

Located in Northern Jutland, the tiny fishing village of Klitmoller is famed for the harsh conditions the North Sea conjures up and has earned itself the name of Cold Hawaii. Howling winds and firing waves make it the perfect stop for the international fleet to throw their largest aerials and slash the waves in a bid to win precious mid-season world ranking points and a cut of the prize money.

Seven days of extreme competition will take place between the 12th-18th September. The men’s wave fleet will be unleashing their most daring moves in order to outdo their opponents for a taste of the €30,000 prize purse and those critical world ranking points.

Having lead the charge on the men’s fleet in the first two event in 2011, the double forward loop master Philip Koster (Starboard / NeilPryde / Dakine / Maui Ultra Fins) will be pulling out all the stops to maintain his position at the top of the table.

In second place sits the Brazilian, Kauli Seadi (JP / NeilPryde). Seadi’s unique style has allowed him to work his way past his adversaries in Pozo and Tenerife. Seadi is sure to be launching into super tweaked pushloops and ripping the waves to pieces with his super-style.

One of the most daring riders on tour Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC), holds the title of the highest double forward loops so far this season. Expect to see Campello armored up and boosting into gravity defying aerials to work his way onto the podium.

After a spectacular performance in Pozo, Dario Ojeda (Tabou / Simmer / Dakine / MFC) has his hands on fourth place. Ojeda has been risking it all to impress the judges to far this season, pulling super late wave 360’s and amazing double forwards.

The 2010 wave champion Victor Fernandez Lopez (Fanatic / North / MFC), will be firing with all guns blazing in Klitmoller in order to break his way back onto the podium. Fernandez Lopez is famous for his super aggressive wave rides and faultless loops, expect to see a Fernandez Lopez tearing up every wave the North Sea has to offer.

Having finish in second place on his home spot in Tenerife, Daniel Bruch (Starboard / Severne / AL360) will be on the hunt for another high ranking finish. Fresh from injury Bruch is looking stronger than ever and if he has ironed out the creases in his double forward loops, he is sure to give the top five a run for their money.

Further down the ranks sits a very on form Alex Mussolini (Tabou / Gaastra), the Australian wave wizard Jaeger Stone (Severne) and the high flying Marcilio Browne (Fanatic / North / MFC), along with a whole host of hot contenders.

Also in the mix are the Klitmoller locals ready to test their skills against the world best. Tour regular Kenneth Danielsen (F2 / Simmer / Mystic / MFC) currently sits in 14th place and he will be looking to take advantage of his home knowledge to work his way through the ranks. As will PWA veteran Lars Peterson (JP / NeilPryde).

With an epic forecast on the cards, the tension is mounting Klitmoller and it looks like it’s going to be an insane competition. Registration will kick off at 10-12pm, on the 12th September with the skippers’ meeting at 12:30pm and the first possible start to competition at 1pm.
