The surf remained at a consistent 4-6 foot range all day with 20 to 30 good waves in each 25-35 minute heat. Barry Holt clearly dominated his Senior Men's Division and the Grand Championship by pulling off stunning "360s" ("belly spins") in each heat, including 2 in a single wave, followed by another 4 spinners! Kaleo "BlueWings" Garlasa easily won the Pro Division and placed 2nd in the GC with his smooth, connected reverse spinners, tubes and deep takeoffs. Chip Hartman, a long time friend of REDWINGS surprised everyone by winning the very competitive Master's Divisions with his powerful deep pocket takeoffs, long walls, barrel rides: he placed 3rd in the GC just a point behind Kaleo Garlasa. As shown in the horn to horn video coverage, some of the most exciting and beautifully executed wave rides of the day were made by Destry Flores, Darryl AhMau, Alec Cooke, and David Lane who did not make it to the finals.
The Meet Committee is now preparing a 1 hour+ VHS video of the contest from the opening Ke oli mea ho`omana'o chant by Butch Helemano to the awards ceremony and including much biographical and historical footage of the man, REDWINGS, himself. Footage includes that shot by H. Denjiro Sato at the contest both from shore using a MiniDV digital camera and in the water using a super high speed 16 mm color cinema camera as well as archival shots of "WINGS" at Waimea and the Pipe. Donations and pre-production orders are being sought to defray the editing and production expenses. Order from: Miscellaneous / Photos and Videos Page.
Please note that Original REDWINGS Cleaver Handboards, Contest T-shirts and REDWINGS Memorial Shirts (long sleeved and short sleeved) are still available. Order from: Gear / Cleaver or Shirts Pages.
