  • From the 27th October the PWA and IWT will return to the spiritual home of wave sailing for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic


    Maui

    The Aloha Classic has long been considered the most prestigious event in windsurfing and this year’s edition will fittingly see a titanic battle to decide not only the Aloha Classic champion, but it will also determine the overall titles for both the PWA and the IWT at Ho’okipa Beach Park - with the event being joint sanctioned. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic starts on 27th October and has a two week holding period until the 9th November. However, once the official call has been made to start the contest the event will then run for 5 consecutive days.

    This year’s Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic promises to be one of the most spectacular yet with a star-studded international lineup almost guaranteeing an incredible show. To win this event it’s going to take a supreme level of skill, a small slice of luck and likely a combination of a strong rail and air game.


    Ho’okipa (meaning ‘hospitality’) Beach Park, Maui, Hawaii is quintessentially the home of windsurfing. A place any windsurfer has hopes, dreams and aspirations of visiting at some point during their lifetime. What makes Maui so special is its clockwork like trade winds, which combine with some of the best, and biggest, waves on the planet to create the most spectacular windsurfing conditions — and all of this is then set against a stunning, luscious, tropical backdrop. It truly is a destination that every windsurfer must experience at some point in their lifetime.


    Women’s


    World Title Race Connotations


    With the late confirmation that reigning world champion - Iballa Moreno (Severne / Severne Sails / Maui Ultra Fins) - will be competing at the Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic that means that the race to be crowned the 2019 Women’s PWA Wave World Champion will consist of 3 women - Iballa, current world tour leader - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) and Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360).


    AC19_wv_Sarah_Quita_warms_up.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa


    Although Iballa may have suffered a disappointing 5th place finish in Sylt, fate still remains in the 10-time world champions own hands and having won the Aloha Classic 3 times already during her career (2006, 2014 & 2015) she may prove difficult to stop once again, however, she will be up against other former Aloha Classic Champions - the IWT’s Sarah Hauser (Tabou / S2Maui) and Sarah-Quita Offringa, who won here in 2016.


    Iballa’s Route to the Title


    - A win would guarantee Iballa a 6th consecutive world title.

    - If Offringa or Sniady were to finish second - Iballa would have to win the event to retain her world title.

    - If Offringa or Sniady were to finish third or worse - a second place finish or better would guarantee Iballa the title.


    Offringa’s Route to the Title


    - A win would guarantee Offringa a maiden wave world title.

    - If either Sniady or Iballa were to finish second - then Offringa would have to win the event in order to claim her first world title.

    - If Sniady and Iballa were to finish 3rd or worse - Offringa would be guaranteed her first world title no matter her result in Maui.


    Sniady’s Route to the Title


    - A win would guarantee Sniady a maiden wave world title

    - If Sniady was to finish second she would then need Offringa to finish 3rd or worse, and Iballa to finish second or worse in order to claim the world title.

    - If Sniady finishes outside the top 2 she will be ruled out of the title race due to discards.


    While the race for the Women’s world title race may be a three-girl race - the race to be crowned the Aloha Classic Champion is still wide open and the best PWA women will be pitted against the finest sailors that the IWT has to offer, which should make for fascinating viewing.


    That means that the world title contenders will have to face the likes of multiple-time IWT & Aloha Classic Champion - Sarah Hauser (Tabou / S2Maui), local rippers - Tatiana Howard (Starboard / NeilPryde) & Shawna Cropas (JP / NeilPryde), plus the current IWT leader - Maríah Andrés (Fanatic / Duotone) - and second placed Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins), while Japan’s Motoko Sato (Starboard / Severne Sails) is also likely to be a major threat.


    AC19_wv_Sarah_Hauser.jpg

    Men’s


    With just 3,606 points separating the top 6 sailors heading into the final event of the year, 5 of those men will enter the Aloha Classic with a great chance of winning the world title - namely current world tour leader Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), reigning world champion Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone), Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing), Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards) and Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails), who won the last event in Sylt and also secured his sole world title to date here in Maui in 2014, but unfortunately current World No.4 - Jaeger Stone (Starboard / Severne / SWOX) has been ruled out of the Aloha Classic through injury.


    With 5 men still in the mix to win the 2019 world title, we will keep you updated on how the title race progresses as the competition advances as there as so many different outcomes, but as a quick outline:


    - A second place or better would guarantee Köster a 5th world crown.

    - A win for either Browne or Fernandez would guarantee them the world title - if Köster finishes outside the top 2.

    - Ricardo Campello can still win the world title if he beats Browne and Fernandez to the event title and Köster finishes 4th or worse.

    - Thomas Traversa can still win the title if he wins the event and Koster finishes 5th or worse and Browne & Fernandez finish 3rd or worse.


    The strength-in-depth of this Aloha Classic field is quite incredible and it includes previous Aloha Classic Champions such as multiple-time winner - Morgan Noireaux (JP / NeilPryde), Levi Siver (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing), Kevin Pritchard (Goya Windsurfing / Ezzy) and Bernd Roediger (Naish Sails), all of whom could easily win again, while upstaging the PWA world title & IWT title hopefuls.


    AC19_wv_Morgan_action.jpg

    Morgan Noireaux


    And that list doesn’t even include local ripper - Graham Ezzy (Tabou / Ezzy), who can beat almost anyone at Ho’okipa on his day, while Camille Juban (Quatro / S2Maui) and global waterman - Kai Lenny - must also be considered major threats - as could Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX) - who lives in Maui - especially given the fact that the first big swell of the season is set to hit Maui just in time for the start of the Aloha Classic.


    AC19_wv_Kai_Lenny_warms_up.jpg

    Kai Lenny


    Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) is currently enjoying his best season to date on the world tour - ranked 7th coming into Maui - and the 26-year-old will also be hoping to secure the Overall IWT Championship, which he currently leads and it looks like the IWT title race will be a straight fight between himself and multiple Aloha Classic winner - Morgan Noireaux.


    AC19_wv_One_hander_from_Antoine.jpg

    A quick glance of the entry list quickly highlights why the Aloha Classic is one of the hardest events to win, but from a spectators' point of view, it quickly becomes apparent why it is also one of the most spectacular events to watch with so much world class talent on offer.


    As well as the Pro contests some of the finest youth’s will also be battling it out at Ho’okipa Beach Park - where local boy Jake Schettewi (JP / Hot Sails Maui) is likely to start as the favourite, but will face stern competition from the likes of Takara Ishii (RRD / RRD Sails) & Takuma Sugi (Tabou / GA Sails).


    How’s It Looking?


    As briefly mentioned earlier, the first big swell of the season is expected to hit Maui’s north shore during the opening days of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic and the decision has already been made that the contest will start tomorrow (27th October) with a skippers' meeting at 10:15am (GMT-10).

  • Das war Tag 1:


    After a slow start to the day, which saw light winds and a relatively small swell compared to the forecast, the conditions gradually picked up throughout the opening day of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic, and by the end, the swell was pumping, while the wind funnelled through much stronger than what was expected. However, with the swell coming from the west and the wind being slightly onshore at times the conditions were tricky with choppy faces and double-ups making wave selection crucial in order to succeed.

    Women’s


    Two out of the three PWA World title contenders successfully negotiated their way into the final - Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) & Iballa Moreno (Severne / Severne Sails / Maui Ultra Fins), but current World No.2 - Justyna Sniady (Simmer / Simmer Sails / AL360) - was eliminated in the quarterfinals and it now looks a very long road back for the Pole to challenge for the world title.


    Joining Offringa and Moreno in the final were Motoko Sato (Starboard / Severne Sails), who looked extremely dangerous in the quarters and semifinals, and current world No.4 - Lina Erpenstein (Severne / Severne Sails) - who is competing in her first Aloha Classic.


    In the final, Moreno went for broke and came agonisingly close to scoring two waves in the excellent range. Crucially, however, the reigning world champion couldn’t quite hold on to her radical aerial attempt on her first wave, while she had to eject from the second, which left the door open for Offringa.


    AC19_wv_Letting_go.jpg

    Iballa Moreno bails out


    The Aruban moved into the lead as she registered two solid mid-range waves, while she enhanced her position with her final wave as she started with a powerful opening turn before delivering a critically late hit to earn 7 points and effectively wrap up the final with the other girls stuck on the inside with the wind dropping.


    AC19_wv_Sarah_Quita_slash.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa making it rain


    Victory in the Single Elimination sees Offringa edge closer to a maiden wave world title, but things remain incredibly tight at the top and it now looks as though it will be a straight fight between Offringa and Moreno for this year’s world title. Given how Iballa sailed today you would have to say that the title race remains very open and there should be a fascinating finale to decide this year’s title.


    AC19_wv_Iballa_Moreno.jpg

    Sato, who set the highest score of the day - 14.12 points - in the quarterfinals eventually claimed the final place on the podium in the Single Elimination with Erpenstein completing the top 4.

    Some will be wondering where multiple-time Aloha Classic and IWT Champion - Sarah Hauser (Tabou / S2Maui) finished as she missed out on the top 5 in the single, but she was involved in an incredibly tight opening semifinal with Moreno, Sato, Tatiana Howard (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing), which could have seen any of the 4 women progress. By the end of the heat, just 0.39 of a point separated second to fourth and you wouldn’t bet against the 30-year-old staging a come back through the Double Elimination.


    AC19_wv_Sarah_bottom_turn.jpg

    Sarah Hauser lines up


    In terms of the IWT title race, Hauser’s semifinal exit means that current tour leader - Mariah Andrés (Fanatic / Duotone) - has not been fully punished for her quarterfinal exit and the Spaniard still remains in with a chance of claiming the overall title. However, she will be aware that she will need to improve her ranking in the double, while Arrianne Aukes (Fanatic / Duotone / Maui Ultra Fins) - who came into the event ranked second - also remains in contention.


    Men’s


    The first round of the Men’s Single Elimination didn’t really produce any major upsets, but the standout from the first round was former Aloha Classic Champion - Levi Siver (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing) - who set the highest score of the day with 16.37 points after showing off trademark turns, aerials and 360s.


    AC19_wv_Levi_in_Control.jpg

    Levi Siver


    The other standouts from the first round were 2016 Aloha Classic Champion - Kevin Pritchard (Goya Windsurfing / Ezzy) - and Kai Lenny, who looks like he could be a real threat for the Aloha Classic Crown - especially with the swell expected to increase in size throughout the night and into Monday - he will now be up against Alex Mussolini (RRD / RRD Sails), Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) and Diony Guadagnino (AHD / Loftsails) in the round of 32. Antony Ruenes (Tabou / GA sails) - who is competing in his first Aloha Classic - also looked to be in decent form.


    AC19_wv_Kai_Lenny.jpg

    In the opening heat of the second round - Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) looked very dangerous as he linked fluid rail-to-rail turns with a variety of aerials to win the heat ahead of local boy Jake Schettewi (JP / Hot Sails Maui), who also sailed well. With Martin successfully advancing the 26-year-old remains in control of the IWT title race - although multiple-time Aloha Classic Champion - Morgan Noireaux (JP / NeilPryde) is yet to sail.


    AC19_wv_Antoine_Martin_sky_high.jpg

    Antoine Martin going massive in between heats!


    During Heat 9 the waves were pumping with several mast high sets rolling through Ho’okipa, which led to the sailors in Heat 10 waiting out the back for a solid set to arrive. However, as the minutes ticked by there was no sign of a set arriving, so Ricardo Campello (Brunotti) showed excellent tactical awareness to quickly notch up two solid wave scores on smaller waves to put himself comfortably in the lead. After waiting it out - Graham Ezzy (Tabou / Ezzy) - finally got himself on the board with a variety of turns and the local eventually stole the heat win with a quick second wave. Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Duotone) had his opportunity in the dying seconds, but crucially just went out the back on his frontside 360, which proved to be the difference between progressing or not. Ezzy and Campello will now face Martin and Schettewi in the next round.

    The swell is only expected to increase overnight - from 4-6ft to 6-9ft @ 16 seconds - so Monday has all the hallmarks of being a potential classic with the trade winds expected to continue . The skippers’ meeting has been called for 10:15am (GMT-10) tomorrow morning with the action commencing from 11am onwards.

  • Der gestrige Tag:


    Day two of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic proved to be a classic with 8-12 foot Hawaiian waves (20 foot plus faces) showcasing why Ho’okipa Beach Park holds the iconic status that it does within the wave sailing world. The infamous Ho’okipa rocks claimed more than its fair share of victims - as anticipated - but the world’s best wave sailors produced a truly amazing performance to wow the crowds, while creating an incredible advertisement for the sport. With the Aloha Classic, PWA and World titles at stake no-one left anything on the line in their pursuit for glory…


    AC19_wv_Martin_in_the_final.jpg

    Antoine Martin


    Wave


    There’s a saying in life that says ‘No risk, no reward’ and you have to take your hat off to - Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) - as he risked absolutely everything in the final. The 26-year-old hunted out mast and a half to double mast high waves, and where some would’ve backed down against the waves of consequence, he instead took aim at the lip. That no-fear approach saw Martin deservedly rewarded with the second 10-point wave of the contest, which set him up to win the Single Elimination ahead of Camille Juban (Quatro / S2Maui), Bernd Roediger (Naish / Naish Sails) and Kai Lenny, which is the first time that Martin has won a Single Elimination on the world tour. In the end, Martin finished the final with a destroyed rig after attempting to hit a double mast high bomb and then experiencing arguably the heaviest washing of the event, but the reward of winning the Single Elimination of the Aloha Classic will more than made up for that - especially as he said that it was nothing compared to a beating at Pe’ahi.


    AC19_ls_Victory_for_Martinb.jpg

    Antoine Martin


    In the past, Martin has been a bit hit and miss - equally capable of producing incredible moments or flopping completely. However, over the last year the 26-year-old seems to have come of age and refined his risk taking, and after winning the Single Elimination he is now on the verge of a career defining moment as he is in an incredibly strong position to win the overall IWT title - with his only threat Morgan Noireaux (JP / NeilPryde) currently 9th here - while if things were to remain as they are then Martin would record by far his best result on the world tour - 4th overall - having never finished in the top 10.


    AC19_wv_Martin_late_hit.jpg

    Antoine Martin


    Juban finishes second in the Single Elimination after opening the final with an excellent 8.62 point wave, but the 29-year-old then couldn’t find another proper score during the remaining 16 minutes, but as always when the conditions get big, Juban was once again one of the standouts.


    AC19_wv_Juban_air.jpg

    Camille Juban


    Bernd Roediger (Naish / Naish Sails), who has won the Aloha Classic 3 times in the past - produced arguably the best wave of the contest thus far, which earned the first perfect 10 of the competition during the semifinal. The 23-year-old began his 10-point wave with a huge aerial straight into a powerful turn before ending with a super inverted goiter! Roediger completes the podium after the Single Elimination.


    AXC19_wv_Roediger_perfect_10_goiter.jpg

    Bernd Roediger


    Throughout the day - Kai Lenny - had showed off his trademark combination of speed, power and flow to successfully negotiate his way into the final, but the final didn’t really pan out the way he would’ve wanted as he elected to kick out early on several waves as he took the patient approach. Unfortunately, this time around the waiting game didn’t pay off and the global waterman had to settle for 4th in the single.



    AC19_wv_Kai_heads_in.jpg

    Kai Lenny


    The race to become the 2019 PWA Wave World Champion took several twists and turns today. First of all with reigning world champion - Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Duotone) - and at the time current world tour leader - Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) - being knocked out in the quarterfinals it looked as though the draw was opening up nicely for either Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) or Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards) to seize the initiative - after Campello had been reinstated after an interference issue with Jake Schettewi (JP / Hot Sails Maui) in Heat 17, which upon review showed that it was actually Campello’s wave, which led to Schettewi having his highest wave score removed meaning the local boy was demoted from 2nd to 4th, while Campello advanced in his place, which led to a furious discussion on the beach which threatened to boil over.


    AC19_wv_Campello_not_happy.jpg

    Interference - Campello complains


    The semifinal then didn’t go Campello’s way and he was soon eliminated in joint 7th in the Single Elimination, which left Browne with fate in his own hands… if he progressed into the final 4 then the Brazilian would have moved into pole position in the race to become the 2019 PWA Wave World Champion. However, like Campello, Browne couldn’t force his way into the final - finishing 3rd in Heat 22 - and joint 5th in the Single Elimination, which leaves him shy of Köster by just 258 points at the close of play.


    AC19_wv_Brawzinho_wave_360.jpg

    Marcilio Browne


    Köster finished 3rd in Heat 19 - which equates to joint 9th in the Single Elimination - but if the German had finished 4th in that heat, then it would now be Browne leading the world ranking - such are the fine margins at the top. The 25-year-old has had his starboard tack sailing questioned in the past, but it’s safe to say that Köster answered more than his fair share of those queries today as he showed off an array of turns and aerials to silence some of his critics. Köster is now on course to earn a 5th world title and with the forecast looking as though it may be tough to complete the Double Elimination - Köster may have done exactly what is required of him here.


    AC19_wv_Philip_Koester.jpg

    Philip Köster


    Elsewhere, Leon Jamaer (JP / NeilPryde), claimed joint 5th alongside Browne, while Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / SWOX) finished joint 7th alongside Campello, while Graham Ezzy (Tabou / Ezzy Sails), Morgan Noireaux (JP / NeilPryde) and Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) share joint 9th with Köster.


    AC19_wv_Jamaer_action.jpg

    Leon Jamaer


    The swell is expected to remain massive tomorrow, potentially increasing slightly again in size - from 6ft at 15 seconds to 6.5ft at 15 seconds - while different forecast models have different predictions for the wind, so we will have to wait and see if the trade winds kick in again. However, with the easterly airflow expected to continue, we remain hopeful of more epic action on Tuesday. The skippers’ meeting has been called for 10am (GMT-10) tomorrow morning.

    Bild aus dem letzten Jahr...

    Und diese elitäre Attitüde geht(ging) mir auch unglaublich auf den Senkel.

    Das ist halt völlig anderes Windsurfen, als auf dem Rest der Tour. Insbesondere im Finale haben die ja wie Wellenreiter im Line-up geparkt und das Segel quasi zum „Anpaddeln“ benutzt.
    (Die anschließen Wellenritte waren natürlich teilweise wahnsinnig geil, das will ich gar nicht kleinreden..!)


    Vor allem in Anbetracht dessen finde ich die Leistungen einiger Fahrer der „europäischen“ Tour besonders bemerkenswert. Ein Local kann natürlich die Wellen ganz anders lesen und nutzen, das merkt man da ganz besonders.

    Aber das auch ein Kai Lenny im Finale keine gute Welle erwischen konnte, zeigt wie sehr das auch Glücksache ist.

    hehe - das dachte ich mir auch


    die wellenritte waren schon geil zum anschauen - und ich musste ein wenuig an die diskussion letzte woche hier denken "gleiten, gleiten, gleiten" ;)

    Ich auch, aber anders als Du.


    Die Wellenritte sind doch nur geil, weil sie im Gleiten sind, richtig?


    Oder findest du das Rumgedümpel zum Positionieren und Wellen raussuchen auch so spannend? Also ich nicht...


    Zu den Locals die da kommentieren sage ich lieber nix....

  • Es bleibt extrem spannend:


    With the macking swell continuing into day three of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic, and the trades showing early signs of kicking, the decision was made to begin the Men’s Double Elimination at 11am.

    However, with the wind being cross onshore and light that made progress extremely slow going with just two heats being completed in two hours. Numerous heats were started, but with huge west sets closing out the channel, the decision was soon made to put the contest on hold with the conditions being deemed too dangerous to continue.

    Unfortunately, Zane Schweitzer (Starboard) sustained a dislocated knee during Heat 27, which was one of the only heats to be completed, but despite that, the 26-year-old still advanced in second place, behind Julian Salmonn (Bruch Boards / GUNSAILS). Everyone from the PWA wishes Zane a quick recovery.

    The only other heat of the day to be completed was Heat 25, which saw Russ Faurot (S2Maui) use his local knowledge to full effect as he stayed out of trouble, while linking together a 6.38 and a back up of 3.88 points to win the heat ahead of Flo Jung (Starboard / GUNSAILS), who was making his first appearance on the world tour since 2018 after sustaining a serious knee injury. Klaas Voget (Fanatic / Duotone) had his chances but was unable to cleanly complete his best waves, which cost him a place in the next round - however, the two heat results gained thus far will not count unless the whole of the first round is completed.

    The difficulty of the conditions today was clearly highlighted by the amount of broken gear and the number of sailors who ended up on the rocks and once the contest was placed on hold at 1pm the conditions never really looked like becoming suitable to resume - with the wind remaining onshore and the swell continuing to pump - so the fleets were released at 4pm.

    Realistically with just two days of the contest period remaining, and the forecast not looking particularly promising to complete the Double Eliminations, that means that both Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) and Philip Köster (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) are slowly edging closer to a first and 5th wave world title respectively.


    Offringa’s main threat would be Iballa Moreno (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who finished second in the Single Elimination, but Iballa would be required to defeat Offringa twice to deny the Aruban a maiden world title, while defending her own world crown, but she may not get the opportunity to do that.

    For Köster, the German would be required to win two heats in the Double Elimination to defend his 9th place in the Double Elimination as if the 25-year-old was to lose before that stage he would then be demoted to joint 13th or 17th, which would then see Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) overtake Köster in the race for the world title. However, it now looks extremely unlikely that we will be able to even get to his first heat in the Double - which would be Heat 38.

    Looking ahead, Wednesday on paper realistically looks like a lay day with light onshore winds expected, but as always you never know until the day, so the sailors will meet again at 10:30am (GMT-10) tomorrow morning for the skippers’ meeting.
