Philip Köster has delivered a flawless wave windsurfing performance to steal the Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup 2015, in Klitmoller, Denmark.

The howling winds of the North Sea crowned a new king. And he comes from Germany. Philip Köster secured his second victory of the year against an in-form Victor Fernandez.

The double elimination final saw Köster landing a superb double forward (9.5 points) in the early minutes. The Spanish answered with an another incredible double forward (8.5 points), but he was not able to get a quality second wave.

"I felt very comfortable on the water today once I changed to my bigger board and sail, which I need because I'm a bit heavier than everyone. For me, it was a perfect day. Everyone heat went great, and I scored my best wave ever here with the 360 in the single elimination," explained Philip Köster.

"I wasn't sure if I was going to win the final because I had one very good wave, but then the second one was a bit sketchy. Overall, I was very happy, though; I'd been watching Victor in the heats before, and he was absolutely ripping, and it was a huge challenge to sail against him."
