Sam Bittner and the American Windsurfing Tour, that she started and runs, have done what no one else has been able to do: bring the PWA back to the USA !!! The JP Aloha Classic will run at windsurfing's most famous wave venue, Ho'okipa Beach Park from October 24 - November 6. Maui is 6 hours behind the east coast US: Noon, New York City = 6:00 AM Maui. Watch the Live Webcast on the AWT JP Aloha Classic Website and PWA Live. While you're here, watch it below (zoom your screen for a better view) on the fully functional, mirror image, iframe of the official JP Aloha Classic website.
Robby Naish, Kevin Pritchard and Josh Angulo have each been automatically entered directly into the main PWA event via a "Champions Wildcard". Bittner reports that as many 15 AWT competitors could qualify for the PWA side of the event. Depends on how many PWA riders actually show up and register. For the latest event info, go to the AWT JP Aloha Classic Updates. And as usual, DaNews will be linking you up to the latest reporting from Ho'okipa.
