Ho’okipa Beach Park delivered the goods for the second successive day of the JP Aloha Classic. The wind started to build very early on again and with the waves still kicking around the AWT Pros Fleet resumed just after 10:30am. The conditions today were slightly more challenging – especially to begin with – due to lighter winds and more time between the sets – meaning that patience and wave selection was crucial in order to advance.
After another full day of competition Bernd Roediger eventually came out on top. Claiming the AWT Overall title for the second year is Camille Juban: “I was so pleased to be sailing with my Quatro team mates at the end of a fantastic year, Mexico and Peru were special and I am thrilled to have retained the AWT Overall Pro title for the 2nd year. I am now looking forward to the PWA event.”
Bernd Roediger: “Wow! Another final at Hookipa! I was standing on the beach and I couldn’t believe it. When they called out the final four I was struck by an overwhelming thought. If I was going to go on a surf trip to score sick waves there are a lot of people I would ask to go. Three of the top names would obviously be Keith Teboul, Levi Siver, and Camille Juban. These guys are incredible watermen and I have always admired their style on the waves. Keith is so vertical its nuts, Levi is the most fluid windsurfing with explosive power and Camille is the master of combining slashy turns with all the best aerial tricks! And here we are in the 2013 AWT Pro Final. Its hard not to get caught watching while your trying to beat them at the same time! I’m so thankful to all my sponsors, Quatro, Goya, MFC, H2O & Quiksilver. To these three guys, because they have inspired me to dream the impossible, I thank you!”

Watch out for
Roediger’s Goiter at 2:05
C. Juban waive ride finishing with a taka at 27:22
The action around 29:00
Siver’s air taka at 33:30
Men’s Final starts at 0:52:30.
1:07:30 game, set and match.
3:17:28 Ezzy, Siver, Stone, etc.. (I must have been mistaken on 1:46:40…)
Roediger apparently got out on top of his heat…I didn’t expect that
Day 2: Nice heat starting at 2:40:34 with B. Roediger and B. Talma (Heat 34). Unfortunately, Roediger didn’t seem to have his best heat. Did he advance? How does the elimination procedure work? Were the heats 16mins. Does anyone know?
I’m also really impressed by Graham Ezzy. The commentator does not need to constantly tell us that Ezzy does not have to compete in this competition–Ezzy must be loving it–who would not want to sail in Hookipa with the best windsurfers in the world?–and not care at all whether he has to compete in it or not.
1:46:40 is where the heat with Ezzy, Siver, Josh Stone, and Denel starts. Great heat!
3:00:30 Heat with Camille Juban, K. Pritchard
3:11:50 FS 360 by K Pritchard
And a Taka at around 3:14:58
Live stream seems to be blocked in Germany when played at youtube or PWA live site. The recorded ones can be watched.
PWA should take care of this (someone could post it at facebook or twitter haven’t got an account there). Wouldn’t be great marketing to build such a barrier in an important market…
yeah if i open it on youtube i get the “not available sorry for that”-message.
freaking amerocentric media restrictions are they?
GET THE PWA BACK TO CANARIES! I WANT TO BE ABLE TO WATCH IT!
maui sucks! who cares about hookipa if there is the Neusiedler lake?
no seriosly, somebody please fix the video broadcast!
