The 5th day of the AWT Cabo Verde Pro welcomed the riders with strong north easterly winds blowing again and a dwindling swell forecast. So, the call was made by head judge Chris Freeman to bring the pro riders back to ‘Little Ho’okipa’/’Secret Spot’. By midday, the lines of swell were starting to roll in and they still had enough power and size to send the pros back out and begin the countdown to the epic final.
The Winners Final
Kauli Seadi and Camille Juban, both just recovered from bad injuries – Kauli from a broken leg and Camille from a shoulder injury, made it into the winners final. Both just changed their sponsors, too. It was the first competition for Kauli on new boards and the first competition for Camille on new sails.
And in the end Camille, two times AWT tour winner, won the event. Boujmaa Guilloul defeated Kevin Pritchard in the losers final. Katie McAnena won the ladies fleet and Patrick Mazur the Amateurs. Camille and Katie take the lead in the 2015 AWT ranking. The next event will take place at Santa Cruz, California, June 4 – 7.
