Billy Kemper gewinnt geschichtsträchtige Pe’ahi Challenge 2015

Shawn Walsh placing second during Round 1.

Am Sonntag gab es in Pe’ahi eine Nikolaus-Beschereung der besonderen Art.

Perfekte Brecher rollten an die Klippen von Maui und lieferten den weltbesten Big Wave Chargern den perfekten Schauplatz. Der Hawaiianer Billy Kemper war zwar am Ende der Sieger des Wettkampfes, aber die unglaubliche Welle von Greg Long zauberte uns Gänsehaut unter das Krampuskostüm. Es war mit Sicherheit eine der größten Wellen die jemals in Jaws angepaddelt wurden!

“It was probably one of, if not the best waves of my life even though I didn’t make it. It’s been a dream of mine to catch one of these barrels and to see that vision. It’s the perfect direction to do it and get the waves from way out the back. Paddling in it looks impossible to make it all the way to the channel but then you get around that first section coming from behind and you’re set. I was lucky in that heat with the wind settling down a bit and a couple multiple wave sets to clean it up and then that wave came through – just was out the back and got the greenlight to catch it.” so Greg über seine Welle

Auch der Jetski Wipeout mit Kai Lenny hätte wirklich böse enden können:

Und nicht zu vergessen, die Stand-Up Barrel von Albee Layer:

Hier die Ergebnisse:
1 – Billy Kemper (HAW) 22.77
2 – Albee Layer (HAW) 19.33
3 – Greg Long (USA) 16.26
4 – Ian Walsh (HAW) 1.00
5 – Gabriel Villaran (PER) 0.80
6 – Shane Dorian (HAW) 0.00
