Levi Siver takes the prestigious Aloha Classic Crown, defeating Bernd Roediger.
Bernd had battled his way back from 3rd in the double elimination knocking out 3 time PWA World Champion Kauli Seadi to face the winner of the sinlge elimination Levi Siver. Winds had lightened after some squals rolled though but waves kept pumping. Levi and Bernd went head to head in epic wavesailing battle. Levi played the smart game knowing he had to be defeated twice, as Bernd layed it all on the line and didn’t hold anything back. Bernd radical attempts were fun to watch but he shot himself in the foot as he just nearly missed them. Levi Siver’s smart sailing gave him the title, as he impressed judges with smooth and powerful wave riding.
Congratulations JP Aloha Classic winner Levi Siver.

The trip of a lifetime.
Kevin Pritchard had been bugging Keith Teboul about going to the Marshall Islands for some windsurfing and some good times. Finally a message came, “Marshalls are going to be good on Thursday, flight leaves tomorrow, bring your camera, your windsurfer, and plenty of sunscreen. You in?” said Keith.
Well let Kevin’s Story tell the rest:
Excited like a kid on Christmas, I booked my flights, bought some sunscreen and we were off. I think the images speak for themselves. The beauty of the Marshall Islands is amazing. While this video only shows hard core waves, it seems funny to say, but the thought of freeriding around this place had me pretty fired up. I would say this is the most beautiful place I have been on Earth. 4 Million frequent flyer miles, 27 countries, never have I seen a place like it.
Marcilio Browne and Bernd Roediger came along with Keith and I and the trip was a blast. Brawzinho was insane to watch as you will soon see, with some nasty wipeouts. Bernd was even more impressive as he had stayed there for 6 weeks and was really starting to let loose when he was getting barreled by the sea monster and came up with a broken back and some serious time off the water, only allowing us to get a couple clips of him ripping it up.
Keith organizes some amazing trips together with Martin Daly @ marshallwaves.com It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The water, the beauty, just incredible. Hope you enjoy the clip.
Enjoy the clip, and the Marshal Islands are a place to add to the bucket list of windsurfing destinations!
Epic conditions at Ho’okipa on April 6th. Mast and mast and a half high waves hit North Shore of Maui. A lot of the big riders were hunting for wavesd at Jaws, which did turnout as expected, but still saw some action. At that time Ho’okipa was left nearly empty, with only a few guys out. This video captures Ferdinando Loffreda, Morgan Noireaux, Nat Gill and Bernd Roediger.
Robby Naish, Josh Stone, Boujmaa Guilloul , Bernd Roediger, Pascal Bronnimann and many more enjoying some Kona Winds at Lanes on Maui Hawaii. Kona’s are a rare event that happens on Maui, when a Cyclone effect the wind direction resulting in large surf, and strong winds.
2012 Maui Makani Classic is Over…… What an Incredible Contest!!
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!
