November 13th was the final day of the Aloha Classic and the wind and waves returned, after 5 days of waiting. It was an exciting final. Kevin Pritchard managed to fend off Marcilio Browne in the super final and Sarah-Quita Offringa made her way through the double elimination to the very top of the ladder.
Men’s final day:
Kai Lenny wasn’t able to compete as he already has left to Fiji for an international SUP event. But Marcilio Browne was on fire, defeated Levi Siver and as well Kevin Pritchard in the first final. It all came down to a super final. It was a super tight battle till the end. The wind dropped during the heat, Kevin had a higher jumping score right at the beginning of his heat and Brawzinho collected bigger points with his wave rides. Kevin Pritchard picked up a brilliant wave just a few seconds before the end of the heat and received 8.50 points for a tweaked Aerial and a one handed Aerial off the lip on one wave. That last wave made the difference. It was the the victory for KP, who defeated a brilliant sailing Brawzinho by less than a point.
Result men pro:
2. Marcilio Browne
3. Levi Siver
Ladies final day:
Sarah-Quita Offringa won three heats in a row and met Ho’okipa local Sarah Hauser in the final. The lady from Aruba defeated Sarah Hauser in the first final and they both had to go for a super final in lighter wind conditions. Again it was a really tight battle with the better end for Sarah-Quita Offringa, who wins her first Aloha Classic title. Big congrats!!

Actually i find it pretty disrespectful to all the competitors, especially to the ones that didnt make it through the trials, to not attend the whole competition as Lenny did.
Thanks to everyone that made that livestream happen!!
Pity that Kai Lenny wasn’t there to finish the double. With what he showed so far in the double he might have gone all the way!

What a show!! Congrats to Kevin, although I think Browzy should have won-his moves on the wave were way more rad and flawlessly executed,but at home even the walls help…
I still can’t believe how lucky we are to have this kind of LIVE coverage with drones, multiples cameras, EXCELLENT commentary from pro windsurfers (not just in Hawaii)! 20 years ago, the only way to follow the PWA was by waiting to get the magazines 2 months later! This is an amazing job from PWA!
