Robert Sand, Project Manager of the KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup, is extremely excited to see such a strong field of competitors signed up for the event in Klitmøller, September 17-23. The Klitmøller World Cup leg will host participants from all over Europe and from as far away as Brazil and Venezuela. “If I were to pick a few sailors whom I particularly look forward to watching here in Klitmøller, it would be guys like Kenneth Danielsen - the local hero who is currently ranked 15th on the world tour. Kenneth finished 6th in Cold Hawaii last year and has improved a lot since then, so I think we can expect him to finish even better this year,” says Robert Sand adding:
“Victor Fernandez is an incredible performer and a super reliable sailor. He is always a pleasure to watch and to hang around with. Victor knows Cold Hawaii very well, and he we will arrive early to practice. He is definitely one of the contenders for the event - and for a world title being ranked second prior to the World Cup leg in Klitmøller" says Robort Sand further adding:
"Ricardo Campello is one of the most unpredictable surfers and therefore an entertaining guy to watch - you simply never know what he will come up with. And last but not least Philip Köster who won the leg here last year. He seems to be completely unstoppable at the moment. Philip is, despite his young age, definitely the stand-out of the world tour. But everything can happen. When the waves start rolling and the wind turns on, the competition will still be wide open here in Cold Hawaii.” Robert Sand concludes.
Six wildcards have been given to Danish surfers for this year’s KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup.
Robert Sand says: “I am stoked to see the Danish wild card entrants,” says Robert Sand, Project Manager of the event. “In particular, multiple Danish Champion and veteran sailor Lars Petersen will be exciting to watch. Nobody has ridden as many Cold Hawaii waves as him. Christoffer Friis is another young talented sailor to watch out for, he has been away training all summer and it will be very interesting to see if he will use his local knowledge to claim a few scalps.”
