Ho’ okipa Beach Maui : Severne Starboard Aloha Classic on the horizon

The stage is set for the closing event of the American Windsurfing Tour – the Severne Starboard Aloha Classic – where the 2014 champions will be crowned at Ho’okipa Beach Park, Maui, between the 29th October and 11th November 2014.

More than 100 riders from over 20 different countries have already registered and over the two weeks will compete against each other in the pro, amateur, master, grand master, youth and women’s fleets for the honor of becoming the Aloha Classic Champions.

The American Windsurfing Tour has already visited Santa Cruz, Pistol River, Peru, Baja and Hatteras this year – these events producing incredible conditions setting the stage for the Maui finale.

In the pro fleet it is a three horse race for the title, with Kevin Pritchard, Morgan Noireaux and Levi Siver sitting in first, second and their respectively going into the Starboard Severne Aloha Classic. Whilst KP has the lead, if Siver’s previous form is anything to go by he could be tough to beat and could still walk away with the title.

In the women’s fleet it is Ingrid Larouche is in the driving seat, but 17-year-old Fiona Wylde is hot on her heels and could certainly steal her crown.

After the AWT competition the top pro riders will join the PWA as they also hold their final wave tour stop and crown the 2014 world champions. The two-week competition period will not only be full of nail-biting action on the water, but a whole host of activities off the water too.
