Day 1 of the Aloha Classic Wave Championships

Maui, Hawaii (USA) – After weeks of rain, flat water, and no wind, it was a
welcome site to behold on the morning of the first day of competition of the
21st Aloha Classic Wave Championships, with steady and growing breeze that
eventually topped out around 15kts, and waves that were logo to mast high in
size.  With the Open Men slated for the first day of competion the sailors were
eager with anticipation as the conditions improved steadily.  With a full
braket of 64 Open Men, the competition ran like a freight train with the judges
counting the best three waves in the 12 minute heats.  Starting promptly at
11am it was finally at 5pm that the final heat of the 2nd round was competed.

After the long battels of the day the remaining sailors in round three of the
Open Men include:
Andres Martinez
Skyler Haywood
Jeff Sutherland
Pedro Loureiro
Francisco Fonseca
Kai Lenny
Josh Stone
Kevin Ponichtera
Takaharu Kamahuchi
Juban Camille
Graham Ezzy
Ian Lemos
Thomas Traversa
Jesse Brown
Nat Gill

This list however does not include the few eliminated sailors who will still
qualify for the wildcards by point score because of the already seeded pro
sailors competing aloong side them in the open men.  This division will be
concluded on Wednesday, but stay tuned for tomorrows action with Masters Men,
and Open Women.  Wildcard winners will be announced by Friday, November 10.
