The first event of the Women’s Standup World Tour, the Turtle Bay Pro, went off in fine fashion at Kuilima Point on Oahu’s North Shore. Brazil’s Nicole Pacelli took top honors as the first event champion of the Tour, with elite racer Candice Appleby securing a solid second, Vanina Walsh finishing third, and Hanna Fenton in fourth.
The young guns also came out to Turtle Bay in full force for the first Na Kama Kai Youth Challenge of 2013. Poenaiki Raioha, Benoit Carpentier, Mo Freitas and Tucker Ingalls put on incredible performances with Poenaiki Raioha taking the win.
