Windsurfing - 09. November 2015.

Iballa Ruano Moreno (Spain) crowned windsurfing world champion 2015


 
From the 28th October onwards the elite of the wave sailing world returned to action and held their final battle of the season in Maui / Hawaii during the PWA Wave World Cup „Aloha Classic“. The wave discipline is often regarded as the crown jewel of the disciplines. Competitors go head to head or in heats of up to 4 at a time, against some of the toughest conditions on the planet. 


 
The whole season had been building to this boiling point and as we headed into the last event of the year there were only two men left standing with a chance of securing the 2015 PWA Wave World Championship. Philip Köster held an almost unassailable lead at the top of the rankings and already had one hand on a third world title, but Victor Fernandez could still win the Aloha Classic and steal the crown from the claws of Köster. Victory for Fernandez was the only option to stop Köster, so the stakes couldn’t be any higher for the Spaniard.  
 
The women’s title race saw an exact replica to last year’s showdown. Just like in 2014 Daida Moreno entered the final event of the year with the tour lead — holding a perfect record so far this season with two wins out of two, but reigning Aloha Classic and world champion — Iballa Moreno remains right on her sister’s heels. A third place finish or better would guarantee Daida the title, but as last year proved anything can happen. 
 
Daida needed to win five consecutive heats in order to recapture the world title, but fell at the first hurdle in Heat 27 as Fiona Wylde and Anne-Marie Reichman advanced. However, whilst things may not have gone as she wanted today, Daida still walks away from this season in second place. The title stays within the family however as her twin sister Iballa won the event and was awarded the world championship title.
