Det er blevet bekræftet at næste stop på PWA touren bliver Ho’okipa Beach Park på Maui slut oktober hvor PWA sejlerne joiner American Windsurfing Tour eventet JP Aloha Classic.
American Windsurfing Tour skrev i går på deres Facebook: “Happy to officially announce the PWA will be joining us at Ho’okipa for the 2013 JP Aloha Classic. Contest dates are October 24th-November 6th.”
Det er første gang i 7 år at PWA vender tilbage til Maui til en konkurrence.
“Its great news for the tour and for the sport that we will finally be going back to Ho’okipa 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.” Richard Page – PWA Tour Manager
“The windsurfing world will finally get the match up they have been looking for as the Hookipa specialists and AWT regulars take on the best of the rest of the world. Legends in the sport such as Levi Siver and Josh Stone will throw down with tour regulars like Victor Fernandez, Ricardo Campello and, of course, current PWA Wave World Champion, the goliath that is Philip Koster, to finally decide who is the master on Maui.” Richard Page – PWA Tour Manager
