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 a 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 the 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. KP 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

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!!
