Noerstick Cold Hawaii PWA Youth Windsurf Wave World Cup 2021

Hurricane swell and offshore winds arrived as predicted on Day 4 of the Noerstick Cold Hawaii PWA Youth Windsurf Wave World Cup 2021 meaning the competition continued in solid conditions with starboard tack winds and set waves around 2 metres.

In the U17 boys - Valters Videnieks LAT33 - had a great battle against - Hannes Gobisch GER 801, but it was Videnieks, who would advance to setup a tie against local boy Tobias Bjørnaa D36 (Fanatic / Duotone), who looked comfortable on starbord tack at his home break. In the end local knowledge prevailed with Bjørnaa coming out on top to set up a final against Anton Richter Ger-441 (JP / NeilPryde), who won the Single Elimination. Bjørnaa produced an excellent display in the first final after landing an aerial to force a decider, but the local boy couldn’t quite hold off Richter at the second time of asking. Richter may not be used to sailing on starboard tack, but some how he achieved the highest heat score with 6 points to win the rematch and with it Richter walks away with the NoerStick Cold Hawaii PWA Youth Windsurf World Cup 2021 title in the U17s division.

The U20s battle was tough for Nick Spangenberg G-141 (JP / GUNSAILS) going up against Liam Dunkerbeck Esp-11 (Starboard / Severne). In the down-the-line conditions Dunkerbeck junior excelled with his surf style earning plenty of points with the judges.

Next up for Dunkerbeck was a match against his buddy - Marino Gil Gherardi E-959 (Goya Windsurfing). This heat proved to be another exceptional one with two contrasting styles going head-to-head. Gil took the more aerial approach, whilst Dunkerbeck stuck to his surfing guns, which turned out to be the right decision with the 17-year-old earning the nod and the right to take on Takuma Sugi J7 (Tabou / GA Sails) in the final. 

The next generation didn’t disappoint once more with Dunkerbeck and Sugi producing another high quality display, but Dunkerbeck couldn’t quite force a Super Final with Sugi successfully defending his Single Elimination crown to become the U20 champion of the NoerStick Cold Hawaii PWA Youth Windsurf World Cup 2021.

Looking Ahead

Thursday should hopefully allow us to complete the remaining heats in the U15s and U20s Girl’s fleets, whilst Friday looks set to be another windy one, which could see some Super Sessions held.

Noerstick Cold Hawaii PWA Youth Windsurf Wave World Cup 2021

With low winds early on Sunday, the first possible start was set for 10:30am, but proper conditions didn’t arrive in Klitmøller until at around 15:00 - when the wind started to turn more westerly and picked up to around 20kts. All competitors were eager to get on the water and in true Cold Hawaii fashion sailing continued until dark.

First up was the U-15 and U-13 between Leon Maethner G-34, Peter Gobish G-802 and Arthur Van de Brande B-9. The young boys performed impressively in conditions where the waves were still on the smaller side. Even so, the heat had nice forward loops and some excellent wave riding as well as solid fundamentals. In the end, Leon Maethner G-34(Fanatic, Duotone, ION), ended up third, Peter Gobish G-802 (Duotone, Fanatic, Ion) second with Arthur Van de Brande B-9(Flyhigh Sports) taking first place with his well executed forward loops proving to be the difference.

Next it was U-17s turn, with a 3 brackets battle, and it started out strong with a stalled forward from Tobias Bjørnaa D-36 followed up immediately by a clean backloop by Gregorios Stathopoulos GRE-73. In the heat between Arthur Kahrs GER-187 and Anton Ricther G-441, both competitors executed great forwards, but Richter stole the show with a beautiful backloop! For the U-17 finals it was between Anton Richter G-441, Hannes Gobish G-801 and local talent Tobias Bjørnaa D-36. Richter started out with aggressive wave riding, followed up by a nice forward from Gobisch. Later on in the heat Bjørnå showed a great stalled forward. At this point the wind was onshore, which led to a forward off-the-lip attempt from Richter. The final ended with Anton Richter G-441(Neilpryde, Jp-Australia, Surfpirates) in first, Tobias Bjørnaa D-36(Duotone, fanatic, ion, k4 fins, noerstick) in second and Hannes Gobish G-801(Duotone, Fanatic, ION) in first

The women U-20 turned out to be a great show! All 5 girls were on the water against each other, and it only brought out the best of them. Their wave riding was impressive all round, with frontside and backside wave riding in increasing sizes of waves and a lot of current. In the jumping department, it turned into a front loop galore with every girl gunning for it. Line Wittrup D-82 and Maria Behrens G-209 had really nice forwards, Maria Navarro E-737 even over rotated her first forward, but redeemed it later on and young Sol Degreick B-5 had an absolutely massive forward loop. It was so tough for the judges to decide who came out on top that two competitor finished tied on points, such was the closeness of the battle. The girls had to go at it again in another heat after the U-20 Men’s Final to find the final score. In the end, Maria Naavarro E-737(Goya windsurfing, Godzilla surf shop, MFC, Malavida, Deportes granadilla de Abona) claimed first, ahead of Maria Behrens G-209(Fanatic, Duotone, MauiUltraFins, Chiemsee), second, and 13-year-old Sol Degrieck B-5(Severne) in third. 

The U20s went through 7 heats of the Single Elimination to find a winner. In the cloudy weather the wind and waves had picked up, and it showed from the first heat, with a forward from Marlon Maethner, whilst Takuma Sugi made a strong start with a one-handed backloop and a huge forward loop. In the second heat - Liam Dunkerbeck E-11 - came in flying with stunning planing forwards and pushloops. All competitors in the first round had excellent backside and frontside wave riding in difficult conditions. 

The second round of heats saw the wind peak and Marino Gil Gheradi E-959 impressed in his first heat, with the biggest backloop of the day, perhaps only surpassed with a one-footed backloop. In the wave riding department he showed a frontside 360, a cutback taka and an off the lip cutback. In the finals it was Dunkerbeck, Sugi and Gil, which proved to be an impressive spectacle. Dunkerbeck stomped a huge stalled forward, whilst Gil responded with a technical aerial.  Gil then showed up his aerial prowess with an impressive repertoire of one-footed backloops, stalled forwards and a  huge pushloop. Takuma Sugi showed off his superb wave riding and closed it out with pushloops - and raised the bar by landing the only double forward of the day! So, after a great final Liam Dunkerbeck E-11(Red Bull, Starboard, Severne, Mfc ) finished third, just behind Marino Gil Gheradi E-959(Goya windsurf, MFC, Mala vida rest, Pozowinds) in second, whilst Takuma Sugi J-7(Gasails, Tabou,  maneuverline, satiworks, テイクビルシステム、グローバルアイ) takes home a well deserved victory in the Single Elimination.

That's the result following first day of competition at Noerstick Cold Hawaii Youth PWA in Klitmøller, with competitors being crowned well into dusk. As of now tomorrow might just suprise us, and we will be standing by. That's all for today, only thing left to say is congratulations to all the winners, and a huge thanks to our sponsors and helpers who made it all possible. 

Looking Ahead

Tuesday’s skippers’ meeting will be at 10am, but also the forecast does not look too promising. Wednesday and Thursday, however, looks promising at the moment for some great waves and offshore conditions, which should hopefully provide an excellent show! Stay tuned!

GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Denmark 2021 | Final Day

The competition in Hvide Sande concluded today, unfortunately with no wind, but with an overall fantastic experience of everything that this wonderful location offers.

It was an earlier start than usual today, with the skipper’s meeting taking place at 7am, with the intention of taking advantage of any possible wind that would allow us to complete the event.

The wind forecast changed constantly throughout the week, but finally it was just not enough to get the event underway. Hvide Sande is an amazing location, which usually offers fantastic kiting conditions. It has been unlucky to not be able to showcase these amazing conditions with our competitors and live-stream, but everyone who has been present for this event leaves with a feeling of appreciation for this area, and for the wonderful people who worked hard to make this event happen.

 

Watch our event highlights!

What happens now?

It’s not often that an event cannot start due to lack of wind for the full duration, but unfortunately when you depend on nature, these things happen.

Each rider who attended the event, received 30 points towards their ranking. Focus now shifts to our next event, in Dakhla, Morocco, where Peri Roberts and James Carew will be looking to maintain their leads, but the other riders will try to close in on them.

“So unfortunately the suitable conditions did not materialise this week,” says head judge Mallory de la Villemarque. “This means that the title-race now moves to Dakhla. This gives both James and Peri an even better possibility of becoming World Champions, which would be the first time for both. Nothing is certain, but we know that the fight in Dakhla will be very exciting. Dakhla usually consists of a mixed format event, so we are hoping for a good swell to provide a great event and exciting battle for the top spots.”

Next event on the horizon

The GKA riders will have just a short break now, and will then head to Dakhla, Morocco from the 27th to the 31st of October for the next kite-surf event. Expect to see some amazing action at this classic spot, along with a live-stream to bring you all of the action directly as it happens.

Famed as one of the world’s hotspots for kitesurfing, there are good ground swells that hit this coast and wrap around the points which makes it perfect for a combo wave and strapless freestyle event with cross-onshore winds. 

Be sure to follow all of the event online!

We would like to thank all of the riders, fans, local organisers and crew for making this event in Denmark happen.
