Turtle Bay Women’s Pro,

Turtle Bay Resort will once again play host to the Turtle Bay Women’s Pro, the opening event of the Women’s World Tour that sees stops in Hawaii, Brazil, California and France.

In 2013 we saw an incredible Title Race that came down to the final heats of the final event of the year in France, as winner of the 2013 Turtle Bay Pro Nicole Pacelli came out on top to take the sport’s first ever Women’s World Title, closely followed by the young talent from Oahu, Vanina Walsh (Starboard) and the breakout athlete of the year, Izzy Gomez (Starboard) from Florida, who stole the show in the last 2 events of 2013 with impressive victories.

One of the favorites for the Title, Candice Appleby finished in 4th in 2013, but is looking stronger and more determined than ever coming in to 2014, as she goes into the hunt for the World Title. However, she will have her work cut out, as all of the above girls will be vying for the very same thing, as will other immense talents such as Aline Adisaka from Brazil, Caroline Angibaud from France and Iballa Moreno (Starboard) from the Canary Islands but also a wealth of local talent such as Mariko Strickland (Naish) from Kauai, Halie Harrison (Focus SUP) from here on Oahu and many more.

So make sure not to miss the Turtle Bay Women’s Pro unfold from the 8th – 16th February.

Sunset Beach Pro

The Sunset Beach Pro will set a new standard for the Tour and the sport as a whole in 2014 as it celebrates its 5th year anniversary as the prestigious World Championship Tour Opener. With a packed field of the very best international athletes coming up against a wealth of local talent throughout all the islands, the first showdown of the year will once again set the standard for high performance Stand Up Paddlesurfing at its very best.

While Tour stand outs such as 3x World Champion and 2x event winner Kai Lenny (Naish), Caio Vaz (Art in Surf), 2012 World Champion Leco Salazar and Sean Poynter (Starboard) will be on a mission to start the year out on a high, local favorites such as Robin Johnston (Mistral) who finished 2nd last year at Sunset and has been Top 5 since the Tours inception, Ikaika Kalama (Rogue), Kala Alexander and Aaron Napoleon (Rogue) will be looking to stand strong at home on Oahu’s fabled North Shore.
Also to watch out for was last year’s breakout athlete at Sunset, Kekoa Auwae, who stunned the world with an incredible display of performance surfing, but also the young Mo Freitas (Focus / Body Glove), who continues to assert his presence on Tour with stand out performances.

However, as is always the case at this prestigious World Tour Opener, Sunset Beach ends up being the star of the show, so make sure not to miss this dramatic event unfold from the 8th – 16th February out here on Oahu’s Fabled North Shore.
