Kaido World Performance 2014: wave windsurfing showdown in Japan

Alex Mussolini has claimed the Kaido World Performance 2014, at Omaezaki Long Beach, in Japan.

Some of the best wave windsurfers in the world had the opportunity to train their skills and maneuvers in the strong coastal winds of the in Shizuoka region.

With winds hitting 35 knots, windsurfers put out a terrific display of talent and creativity. The event puts Japanese riders against an international roster of highly competitive wave performers.

In the final heat, Mussolini pulled a giant backloop. Graham Ezzy answered with a one-handed pushloop. Judges were divided, and so spectators had to pick only one winner.

Alex Mussolini took top honors, Graham Ezzy finished runner-up, Bernd Roediger kept third, Morgan Noireaux was fourth, and Masahiro Motohashi secured a respectable fifth place.
