PWA Cold Hawaii: Victor Fernandez 2nd, Klaas Voget 5th!

Victor Fernandez is the Vice Champion of the PWA Cold Hawaii contest 2015, Klaas Voget finished 5th and Alessio Stillrich takes 2nd in the Super Session!

Victor was on fire in the Double Elimination — just like he has been in each event this year. He earned perfect 10s in the contest as he defeated Jaeger Stone and Marcilio Browne with a combination of stunning doubles and radical wave rides. Against Stone, Victor actually recorded the highest individual heat score of the entire competition to setup a mouth-watering final against Köster.

Also Klaas Voget was staging a brilliant comeback of his own as the German slashed his way past four opponents in a row in the shape of; Adam Lewis, John Skye, Alex Mussolini and Ricardo Campello to settle in fifth place.

Victor after the event: “I was very happy to come back through the double elimination. To make another final in Klitmøller is amazing as it’s so difficult. I think I was well prepared for the competition with my equipment working well in the tricky conditions and I gave it my all. In the single I was on my 77l production board with 4.5m and for the rest of the contest I was on my 94l stubby custom prototype, which we might produce next year, and 4.7m and 5.0 for the final as the wind dropped a little bit.I’m still in with a chance for the title, so I’m going to fight all the way to the end. I’m happy to be involved in the title race again for another year and lets just see what happens. Congratulations to Philip and Marcilio. I’ll see you here again next year.”

Victor and Philipp are now level on points in the title race after another colossal fight, so fingers crossed for the upcoming PWA event on Sylt:-)

The Super Sssion on the last day of the event  consisted of 3 qualifying heats with the winner of each heat advancing into the final as well as one lucky loser — the highest second placed finisher. It was Alessio Stillrich who finished 2nd right behind Marcilio Browne – great job there! Adam Lewis just misses out on the final.
