After the last event of PWA World Tour Aloha Classic taking place in Maui Philip Koster finished in 1st and Justyna Sniady 3rd Overall in Waves for the year. Big congratulations to both. It was a pleasure working with them.
Philip says: "Really happy to win my 5th world title here at the @pwaworldtour aloha classic! Couldn’t have done it without the support of my family and specially @manca_notar ! Big thanks also to @dr_windsurf for helping with anything there is at the contest so i can focus only on windsurfing. Thanks for the support "
Justyna says: "DREAMS COME TRUE 🤩 3rd in the World 🍾🍾🍾 Thank you for every one of the hundreds and hundreds of support messages I received over the season, all the crossed fingers and all the cheering. It fuelled me with so much positive energy to fight even when the luck was not on my side.
Thank you to my Family for surviving the emotional roller coaster of competition that went for many more years then just this crazy season and for being there in all the moments of doubt, disappointment, through injuries and setbacks.
Thank you to all the amazing people who stepped in to help me fight till the end and come to compete in Hawaii for the first time ever.
I would lie if I said I am not a bit gutted about the end of the year and falling from 1st to 3rd and especially about one terrible heat in the windless Sylt shorebreak, but honestly I have never imagined that putting everything into this with hopes of one podium will take me to 4 finals, onto 3 consecutive podiums, to Aloha Classic for the first time and onto an overall PWA wave podium as the first Polish person in history of windsurfing. Thank you so much to my coach Jorge Vera @dr_windsurf who somehow called this long before the season and kept me focused and motivated all year, to Richard from @max_active_squad for support and for flying out to two of my events to cheer me on! To all my friends for watching me through the nights and during the office hours 😜 You are all a part of making this dream happen #thankyou 🤗
