PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup - SUP action in Klitmoller

On day five of the PWA KIA Cold Hawaii World Cup, there was clean chest to shoulder high waves rolling into Klitmoller, with light to medium cross shore wind. With the double elimination being completed yesterday, there was no windsurfing competition today. However, there was still plenty of action on the water as a stand up paddleboard contest was held in the ideal conditions.

After a leisurely start to the day ten riders signed up for the competition, consisting of Mor Meluka, Casper Steinfath, Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Simmer / MFC), Sebastian Kornum (JP / NeilPryde) and Leon Jamaer (Fanatic / Hot Sails Maui) in heat one. Whilst heat two saw Oliver Hartkopp, Peter Steinfath, Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / North), Lars Petersen (JP / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) and Albert Pijoan (Starboard / Severne) battling out for a place in the final.

The first heat resulted in Casper Steinfath and Sebastian Kornum advancing into the final, and they were soon joined by Peter Steinfath and Oliver Hartkopp. The final was extremely close between, the Steinfath brothers and Sebastian Kornum with each of them leading at one point or another. Kornum scored the wave of the day as he picked up a big set wave and rode it all the way to the inside with several nice smooth turns. As the scores were calculated there was a tie between Peter Steinfath and Kornum, as both sailors scored a combined score of 10.33 for their two waves. In the end the decision went in Steinfath’s favor due to his greater fluidity and style on the wave.

After the SUP competition had come to an end several sailors took the water to take advantage of the clean waves and starboard tack waves. Victor Fernandez, Leon Jamaer, Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde), Peter Volwater (Fanatic / Avanti) and Tuomo Naalisvaara (Starboard / Severne) were just some of the names that gave the crowds on the beach another superb show, as they tore the waves to pieces.

All eyes now turn to tomorrow, as the anticipation builds for Saturday’s super session. The forecast is currently predicting strong Northerly winds, which will turn Cold Hawaii into a starboard tack jumping paradise. The registration for the super session will take place between 12pm and 1pm tomorrow morning, before the world’s most radical sailors are released onto the water to go as big as they possibly can.
