01|10|2013      Nach sieben Jahren kehrt die PWA Tour nach Maui zurück

Zum ersten Mal treffen PWA und AWT (American Windsurfing Tour) aufeinander. Das bedeutet radikalste Action der weltbesten Windsurfer an einem der besten Wave Spots der Welt - Hookipa.

Legenden wie Levi Silver und Josh Stone messen sich mit PWA Tour Spezialisten wie Victor Fernadez, Ricardo Campello und natürlich dem aktuellen Weltmeister Philip Köster.

Our Slogan The Right Stuff for Radical Action matches perfectly with the image of Ho’okipa as one of the most radical wave spots on this planet. We did not have a PWA event on Maui since we sponsored the last Aloha Classic in 2006. So we at JP finally decided that it is time again that we step up and become the title sponsor and bring the best wave sailors back to Maui for a PWA competition. We are very proud that we can help to make this finally happening and we look forward to see the best and most radical wave riders perform in the prestigious Aloha Classic. Jason Polakow who was the first non-Hawaiian ever win in Ho’okipa will unfortunately not be able to compete as he has other commitments in an event on Mauritius but he will be attending the opening ceremony of the event and he will keep his fingers crossed for his JP team mates.

Sam Bittner – AWT Tour Director

Since we began the Makani Classic at Hookipa 2 years ago, our goal has been to build a bigger and better event which will bring more top level athletes to the event. The addition of the PWA to the line-up will add another level to an already great competition and we are happy to see the contest continue to develop.

Richard Page – PWA Tour Manager

Its great news for the tour and for the sport that we will finally be going back to Hookipa after 7 years and its fitting that we will be doing it with JP who have once again stepped up to cement their relationship with wave sailing at the highest level. We are grateful to Sam Bittner at the AWT for her support and efforts in building the foundations of the event through the Makani Classic and we are confident that this will be the start of strong future for PWA events on Maui.
