Finally, on the final day of the PWA KIA Cold Hawaii event the wind and waves returned just in the nick of time and allowed a result. The Brazilian Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne claimed his first first ever event victory on the PWA Wave World Tour in a tight heat against Philip Köster.

Marcilio Browne: “For me it’s my childhood dream, I never thought this would happen. Sometimes I thought I was wasting my time. It felt like in this last couple of years I had some close heats that I lost. I really thought I didn’t win, because I didn’t see him sailing and I was so happy for second. For me to win it is unbelievable, especially in conditions like this. I never got better than ninth here. At some points I was like; ‘man, maybe I should try to get a starboard tack jump’ because it so onshore but I couldn’t quite get the speed. I got really angry but I’m pleased I got one (big double forward jump, which sealed the victory). I couldn’t see Philip and then I thought it is hard out here so maybe he’s finding it hard too, so I just had to get some points on the board and hope.”
