From October 28 until November 10 some of the best wave riders battle for the prestigious Aloha Classic title at Ho’okipa Beach Park in Maui, Hawaii. The event is not only the IWT final but also a PWA Qualifier at the same time. Day 1 saw challenging north northwest swell with big waves rolling through all day with east winds turning south-east. Day 2 was a smaller, lighter day and the first two rounds of pro men and women are completed.
On day 5 Camille Juban and Sarah Hauser won the pro categories. Sarah Hauser won her final heat with the high score of the day in the women category. Sarah had 14.8 points on her scoresheet. Camille won the final with 18.37 points, what was the second highest score of the day. Just Antoine Martin, his fellow country man from Guadeloupe, managed to collect 0.20 points more in his quarter final. He missed a few points in the winners final to challenge a very consistent Camille.
