What a phenomenal 5 days of contest here at the AWT final tour stop at Ho'okipa Maui! Everyone was in agreement that there hadn't been a competition like it at Ho'okipa for a very long time. The biggest names in windsurfing from back in the day put up a fierce fight and an epic show against some of the top new names in the sport.
With 120 entrants, from 24 countries, 60 amateur competitors, 20 female sailors and a who's who in the Professional division, this event was destined from the outset to be a very, very special few days. Combining the incredible entry list with some all-time Ho'okipa conditions with waves in the 12-15 foot region, spectators and competitors alike were treated to a spectacle that I don't think any of us will be forgetting anytime soon!
