Twenty-four men signed up for the 2014 Cold Hawaii Super Session – resulting in three eight man qualifying heats for the final – with the top two men from each heat advancing. Conditions were tricky with gusty, swinging winds making it difficult to time a gust with a suitable ramp, but the sailors adapted brilliantly to still provide an impressive array of jumping on their biggest equipment.


Victor Fernandez, Flo Jung, Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne , Thomas Traversa, Ricardo Campello and Alex Mussolini made it into the final of the super session. The Brazilian reigning wave world champion Marcilio Browne rotated through the only double forward of the day to take the opening victory of the week. “It feels more natural to me on Starboard tack”, he mentioned. Thomas Traversa wasn’t far behind the Brazilian as he landed a radical one-handed tabletop to claim second, followed by Jung, who completed the podium with a switch, back-to-sail cheese roll, which is the first time the ‘Ocean Jump’ has been seen during a PWA competition. It’s a signature move by Flo, who presented the move during the prestigious ‘Ocean Jump’ show contest, a battle between BMX riders and Windsurfers on Skateboards, who jump over a huge ramp. Flo Jung practiced the Ocean Jump move on a ramp, but already landed the move on the water during windsurfing sessions in Morocco.
