The inaugural PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup was held in 2010. Every year thus far the competition has been blessed with a mixture of monstrous swells and port tack howling winds, to starboard tack float and ride – which has tested the top sailors in the world to their limits – whilst providing jaw dropping action aplenty.
Philip Köster (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) reigned victorious in the first two competitions, but he was denied a famous hat-trick of Cold Hawaii victories by a rampaging Thomas Traversa (Tabou / Gaastra) in 2012. In doing so the Frenchman became the first man in five events to defeat the back-to-back world champion, but more importantly, Traversa held his nerve to claim his first ever PWA event victory.
The next amazing installment of the Cold Hawaii World Cup will take place later this year, between the 16th to the 22nd September. To wet your appetite, a brand new teaser has just been released to give you a taste of things to come. Expect to see double forwards galore combined with sick cutbacks and aerial antics off the lip, in what is sure to be another epic event on the Danish shores of Klitmoeller.
Enjoy this teaser that highlights exactly what Cold Hawaii has to offer!
