PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup day 4 insane action

'Close shave - PWA KIA Cold Hawaii World Cup 2011 Day 4'    PWA World Tour

The PWA KIA Cold Hawaii World Cup has now completed the fourth day of competition in which there was plenty of action including insane jumps, monster loops, and massive crashes from the world’s best jumpers in the SURF Magazine super-session.

With the wind and waves still firing, the world champion crowned and the official competition completed, the crowds on the beach were still hungry for more entertainment and action from the world’s finest wave riders.

Cue the SURF Magazine super-session. The format was simple, the riders would be separated into two heats of ten men each and the sailors had twenty minutes to perform their most radical jumps. The five riders from each heat with the most extreme airs would advance into final, where they were fighting for one of three iPad 2’s. However there was a twist, if one of the sailors dare pull the first ever triple loop in competition, they would be awarded with all three Ipads.

Heat One: Local ripper Christopher Friis kicked off the proceedings with a super clean tweaked pushloop; however he was soon upstaged as the sailors hunted for ramps. The newly crowded world champion Philip Koster (Starboard / NeilPryde / Dakine / Maui Ultra Fins) was next to make a move, with his world famous bolt upright double forward loop, moving him straight into first place.

Next up Victor Fernandez Lopez (Fanatic / North) stepped up to the table with a double forward of his own, along with Marcilio Browne (Fanatic / North / MFC). British wave maestro Adam Lewis (Point-7), diversified the jumps with an incredible shove-it cheese roll, scoring seven points from the judges. Towards the end of the heat it was a fight for fifth place with Peter Volwater (Fanatic / MauiSails), Andreas Olandersson (Simmer /MFC) and Friis all delivering a great show, Olandersson managed to step ahead with a super clean one handed backloop but he was soon over taken by Eleazar Alonso Sanchez (Naish / Naish) for his one handed backloop, keeping his backhand off all the way around.

The top five advancing sailors were Koster, Fernandez Lopez, Lewis, and Browne for their perfect double forwards, and Alonso for his one handed backloop.

Heat 2: Moving quickly in the second heat, Timo Mullen (Starboard / Severne) opened up with huge backloop out the back of the arena. The German jumper Leon Jamaer (Fanatic / Hot Sails), nailed a one handed backloop, but crashed hard with a pushloop-forward attempt.

Highflying Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC) then spotted his ramp and launched into an enormous 8.5 point scoring double forward loop followed by Frances Jules Denel (Exocet), as he flew around his own double forward loop. Mixing things up a little, Alex Mussolini (Tabou / Gaastra) pulled an incredible one footed backloop out the back. Brazilian Kauli Seadi (JP / NeilPryde) was late to make his move but sealed the deal with a perfect double forward loop.

Campello, Denel, Seadi, Mussolini and Jamaer made their way into the final for their exceptional jumping.

Final: All eyes were on Koster and Campello in the final, and hopes were high for the triple loop, however it looked particularly tough to find a perfect ramp in the onshore conditions, however that didn’t stop the pros putting on an outstanding performance. Lewis was first to move and he wowed the crowds with a forward loop, ejecting his equipment mid maneuver sending it flying. Following that the sailors filled the air with a quick succession of jumps launching into anything from forward loops, to pushloop and backloops.

Browne shone straight through into first place with a perfect double forward scoring 9.5 points, Koster then matched him with his own bone-dry performance. But really impressing the judges was Campello with an ankle dry, super-high and perfect pushloop forward. Campello was awarded twelve points for his efforts and he went straight into first place. Seeing Campello’s jump, the sailors tried to match him with non-stop double forward loops. Jamaer was the only other sailor to try the pushloop-forward buthe was unable to hold the landing. In order to confirm his position in first place Campello then flew into the highest double forward loop of the competition to close the heat.

The SURF Magazine super-session results:

2nd Philip Koster (Starboard / NeilPryde / Dakine / Maui Ultra Fins)
3rd Victor Fernandez Lopez (Fanatic / North)
