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!
