The PWA Aloha Classic Presented by JP-Australia – Day 3

The old, the bold and the beautiful forced to sweat it out through another scorching Maui day, with nothing more than a gentle breeze to ease the tension

Impeccably clear skies left the West Maui Mountains completely exposed creating incredible views across the crystal clear waters of Ho’okipa this morning. Despite their beauty, the glassy seas, tickled by a gentle breeze, were not a welcome sight for the waiting competitors. Both the men’s and women’s fleets, comprising some of the greatest and newest names in the sport, went back to the waiting game to see what the conditions would bring.

The wind continued to swing switching first to offshore, before backing side-shore from the west and eventually returning to the more traditional easterly trade direction. Although the wind and swell continued to build gradually through the afternoon, conditions never really improved sufficiently and eventually at 16.00 competition was cancelled for the day.

Forecasts for the days ahead remain unclear, but you can check out the action so far at and download the latest video action from the event at .

The show starts up at 10.00 tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned to for all the latest news as it happens.
