The final day of the KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup in Denmark saw an enthralling day of competition as Cold Hawaii returned to life with a vengeance, as howling winds and big, powerful waves arrived just in the nick of time to allow a result. Today will live long in the memory of Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne, who managed to claim his first first ever event victory on the PWA Wave World Tour in a tight heat in front of Philip Köster and Alex Mussolini.
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.”
