2015-12-18 New: Slalom-Race-Carbon-Weed

SLALOM RACE CARBON WEED komp neu RGB k

Over the past two years we have developed and extensively tested a weed version of the Slalom-Race-Carbon. The result is the ultimate weed fin that will delight even the most demanding slalom and speed sailor.

The test team around Kurosh Kiani is absolutely satisfied with the final product. Because of its thin profile the fin is also excellent for use on downwind courses, as tests by our team rider Birger Bruhns at Deutsche Speed Championship 2015 on Fehmarn showed. It is produced the same way as the Slalom-Race-Carbon at THM - made in Germany.

The characteristics and performance are almost identical to the straight version: Very easy to control even in extreme conditions and extremely fast on speed runs, yet powerful.

Best suited for: Slalom / Race / Speed, especially in weedy conditions

Lengths: 20-40 cm (by 2 cm-steps)
Systems: PB, DTT (30-38 only), TT
Prices: 339-379 €

Available from January 2016, in the shop.

 

2015-11-15 Top of the world!

Maui Ultra Fins riders Philip Köster and Iballa Ruano Moreno were crowned champions of the world at the end of the 2015 PWA Wave World Tour!

Philip Köster had a great year of competition and he absolutely dominated the events in Pozo and Klitmøller. He showed outstanding performances on the waves and especially in the air. His almost completed triple forward loop during the final in Pozo was definitely the highlight of the 2015 wave season. After winning his third world title Philip is even more motivated and we’re looking forward to more breathtaking action from Philip in 2016! Thumbs up for our World champion!

Iballa Ruano Moreno took the title in the women’s division after winning the prestigious Aloha Classic event for the third time in her career. By winning the 2015 wave world title Iballa completed, together with her sister Daida, a total of 25 world titles for the twins, what an amazing achievement by these two outstanding athletes! Having won Pozo and Tenerife, Daida got second in the 2015 wave world tour right behind her sister. The twins were joined by Sarah-Quita Offringa for the final spot on the podium, which is thereby completely owned by Maui Ultra Fins riders.

Lina Erpenstein organized the cherry on the cake: PWA Youth World Champion in her first season. Congratulations!

As Sarah-Quita is becoming a real threat on the wave tour, she also had an amazing year of competition. After finishing 3rd in the waves and becoming freestyle world champion for an unbelievable 8th time, she is also leading the slalom world rankings!

Big congratulations to our world champions and all the other Maui Ultra Fins riders after a great competition season in 2015!

2015-09-23 KIA Cold Hawaii World Cup Klitmøller

The Köster Show!

DK15 ls G44 0792 kDK15 wv G44 0828 k

For the 6th consecutive year Cold Hawaii produced a perfect arena for the world’s best wave riders to show what they are capable of in the rough North Sea conditions. This means, that Cold Hawaii maintains its unbelieveable 100% quote.

The outstanding sailor during the whole competition was Maui Ultra Fins rider Philip Köster. Philip entered the competition stage right from the beginning, being in the first heat of the single elimination. At this stage Cold Hawaii showed perfect down the line conditions with gusty offshore winds and small but very clean waves with some logo high sets coming through.

Jumping was not the issue in this kind of conditions and only the two best waves were counting to decide the heats. In his heat Philip delivered an excellent display of his waveriding ability with radical vertical hits and wave moves like a perfect goiter which secured Philips place in the second round.

Due to the gusty and unreliable wind conditions heat number 2 had to be cancelled four times in a row, before the fading light set an end to the competition on that day.

The next day was a completely different story, in regard to the prevailing conditions. Cold Hawaii  presented howling winds and mast high sets right to the early start of the day with the first heat (still the unfortunate heat number 2) starting at 7:30 am. The judging criteria for the whole day were 2 waves and 1 jump to count.

After a perfect start to his heat against Ricardo Campello in round No 3 with a trademark double forward loop Philip Köster had to change his broken board and struggled a bit with the uncomfortable gear. After a second change of gear Philip found back in the heat and showed perfect wave rides, including frontside and backside 360s and a goiter in the challenging onshore conditions. With at least one perfect double forward in every heat, backed up with excellent wave riding up to the maximum score of 10 points Philip was in a league of his own and claimed the single elimination victory.

During his heats Philip used a twinser setup, consisting of two 17,5cm X-Twin fins.

With continuous firing conditions the double elimination started right after the loosers final of the single elimination.

After some impressive comebacks it all came down to the wire, with the top 4 riders of the single elimination, fighting for a better result in the double. Jaeger Stone was stopped in his tracks by an on from Victor Fernandez who defaeted Jaeger Stone for a second time, after his victory in the loosers final. Thereafter Fernandez took on Marcilio Browne and sailed a perfect heat to claim victory and to go on to face Philip Köster in the final.

Fernandez entered this heat as world tour leader against Philip Köster, who was ranked second at this stage. But Philip once again showed a perfect display of his superiority including an ankle dry double forward and impressive waverides with another perfect backside 360, right in the critical section of the wave. At the end Philip came out as the unbeaten King of Cold Hawaii with his second event victory at this place.  And furthermore he took the lead on the world tour with now two event victories and one third place under his belt. So Philip will enter the famous Sylt event as number 1 titel contender in the 2015 wave world tour.

Results of the KIA Cold Hawaii World Cup for the Maui Ultra Fins riders:

1. Philip Köster
