Camille Juban: eyeing the title in Cabo Verde | Photo: Si Crowther/AWT

Camille Juban claimed the Goya Cabo Verde Pro 2015, the first event of the American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) season in consistent wind conditions.

The finals' day was nothing less than epic. The semifinals had fours serious windsurfing contenders: Kauli Seadi, Kevin Pritchard, Boujmaa Guilloul and Camille Juban. In other words, two world champions and two AWT champions.

Seadi pulled his trademark turns in with huge super-clean goiters, to win his heat against Pritchard; Juban managed to complete a perfectly landed goiter in the closeout section to move into the final.

With larger set waves and a 15 waves per heat rule, the finalists had everything to put out a world-class act, in two different styles.

Kauli Seadi showed power and flow and added some phenomenally technical goiters and aerials into the mix. But Camille Juban answered with a committed wave sailing performance, and what was probably the highest, most critical goiter of the entire competition.

Boujmaa ended up winning the losers' final with a one-handed aerial; Katie McAnena conquered her first AWT Women's stage, and Patrick Mazur took home the Amateurs contest.
