The first event of the HASA Maui 2014-2015 season kicked off yesterday at Lahaina Harbor under beautiful sunny skies and very light winds. Surf was in the 3-5 foot range making for some great surfing.
Our junior Stalk It team had a great showing with Aloha Lopez placing 2nd in her preliminary heat, 1st in her semi-final heat, and finally finishing with a 2nd Place trophy in the Open Women division!! A great start to the season for Aloha! Kelson had an awesome day as well, with a 2nd place in his preliminary heat of his 16-17 yr old division, moving him into the semi-final where he got 3rd, just missing advancement into the final. This was good enough for a 5th place and a nice way to start the rankings for this season.
Kelson's highlight however was in the prestigious Open Men division where he got 1st place in the first round, pulling a huge air-to-reverse maneuver, and moving directly into the final! Trying to get the most of the of day the Open Men final went out into the water at 7:35 pm, the sun had already moved below the horizon and darkness was falling quickly. After 6 minutes of trying to decipher which shadow was which, they called the surfers in and decided to wait until the next event, and re-run the final!
So we will have to wait and see what place Kelson will get in the Open Men!
