The fourth installment of the KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup was completed three weeks ago as Cold Hawaii once again demonstrated its world class potential, by showing virtually every dimension it has to offer. Over the course of the week anything from cross-off down the line wave riding, in perfect peeling waves, to cross onshore jumping conditions were combined with a mixture of glorious sunshine, torrential rain and an abundance of rainbows, proving again that there is something for everyone in this wonderful location.
Now double4productions have just released their brand new video - produced by Sophia Regerbis - tracking TeamFrance’s performance in the third PWA wave event of the year. Cold Hawaii left it until the very last minute this year to produce a result, as the competitors battled it out for the entirety of the final day. Follow the 2012 PWA Cold Hawaii Champion Thomas Traversa (Tabou / Gaastra), Antoine Martin (JP / NeilPryde) and Jules Denel’s (JP / NeilPryde) progress through the contest in this beautifully shot masterpiece.
By the end of the contest, Antoine Martin, finished in joint 17th after a close battle with Britain’s John Skye (RRD / MFC), whilst Jules Denel produced his best result to date on the PWA World Tour having managed to defeat Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North / AL360) and fellow teammate Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC) in almost inseparable clashes. France’s top dog still remains Thomas Travera, the 2012 champion may not have been able to retain his Cold Hawaii title, but he still impressed the crowds and the judges with his effortless, fluid wave riding and tabletop forwards as he took home fourth place.
The next installment on the PWA Wave World Tour will see the men’s fleet return to action as the PWA teams together with the American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) to bring the elite of the wave sailing world back to the world class shores of Maui - for the first time in seven years - as the JP Aloha Classic takes place between the 24th October and the 6th November.
