Camille Juban has claimed the 2015 American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) title, at Maui, Hawaii.

In Heat 43, Kevin Pritchard knew he had to give his best to keep fighting for the prestigious trophy. But Siver, Campello and Roediger were also battling for a victory on the Pacific island.

Pritchard started well, landed a few airs and displayed his beautiful full roundhouse cutbacks. However, Levi caught the best wave of the heat, and Ricardo convinced the judges with his stunning aerials. Juban couldn't be happier.

The sailor from Guadeloupe watched his direct opponent, Kevin Pritchard, failing to advance to the decisive finals of the wave windsurfing competition. As a result, Juban celebrated the season's title.

The NoveNove Maui Aloha Classic need a winner, though. So Kauli Seadi and local star Morgan Noireaux went for the ultimate showdown. Noireaux decided to wait for the bombs of the day, and Seadi rode an 8+ point wave. A Super Final had to be called.

This time, Morgan put the nail in the coffin with two solid scores, and successfully defended his 2014 title at Hookipa.

"It feels amazing. To be honest, I thought I'd got a first and a second there for a little bit, so it's nice to find out I'd won. I saw Kauli going for the little insiders, but I didn't think it was worth it because I had a solid set wave in the bag already, so then I was just trying to find another wave like that opening one," explained Morgan Noireaux.

"I just didn't wanna start going goiters and what not on the inside - I just wanted to get some decent turns. Overall though it didn't feel like I waited that long, but I'm happy that the bit of patience I showed in waiting for the bigger sets ones paid off."

Jake Schettewi won the overall 2015 AWT Youth title, and Sarah Hauser conquered the 2015 AWT Women's title. uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website. Learn more on our About section.
