Kia Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup, il video della super session

di - 21/09/2015

Archiviato il main event vinto da Philip Koster, i ragazzi del PWA sono scesi ancora in acqua per una spettacolare Super Session, vinta da Marcilio Browne, seguito da Alessio Stillrich e Robby Swift. Ecco il video!


There was a more relaxed start to the penultimate day of the KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup — compared to yesterday’s hectic, but epic, schedule. Registration for the Super Session was held between 1pm and 1:30pm and 14 of the world’s finest wave sailors signed up to battle it out in front of a packed out crowd.
The super session consisted of 3 qualifying heats with the winner of each heat advancing into the final as well as one lucky loser — the highest second placed finisher. Each sailor was given 18 minutes to produce their best jump or wave move in order to advance and it was Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North), Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins / SWOX), Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC) and Jules Denel (JP / NeilPryde) — who was the lucky loser that secured their place in the showdown.

Super Session Final
The wind picked up for the final and it turned into a double forward off with everyone throwing themselves into doubles left, right and centre. For a long time it looked as though Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North) was heading for the top of the podium as the twenty year old landed an almost perfect double forward to earn 28.5 points out of a possible 30. However, there was one man who was intent on claiming first place — Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC) — and the Brazilian launched himself into multiple efforts, which paid off in the dying minutes as he posted a score of 28.7 points to steal the victory. Robby Swift completed the podium ahead by Jules Denel.
With an epic double elimination and a super session in the bag, tomorrow will see a lay day with the sailors de-rigging and readying themselves for their next battle in Sylt, which kicks off on the 25th September.
