Aloha Classic 2017 – With less than a point separating the four finalists, the water level has always been very high and the youth Bernd Roediger has well defended, giving all he could.
Bernd Roediger: “Single elimination semi-final I faced Graham Ezzy, Kevin Pritchard and Kai Lenny! I knew that exceed the round would be tough and nothing was safe; I got a great 9 in my first wave thanks to a hull and then I had to find another wave worthy, but she was the one to find me. With only minutes remaining in the heat, I surfed a wave of ten feet, with an aerial in the critical section; It was the most exciting and most thrilling aerial experience that I have ever experienced in windsurfing! “.
“The format of four men in the water definitely promotes a strategic approach to competition, Since the 2nd place is equally rewarding of 1° regarding the next round. However, Once you're in the final, you have total freedom! If you can get to the final, you have the opportunity to show what you can do without having to stress to advance to the next round! Ultimately, though, the guys who surf well at Ho'okipa are in constant dialogue with the ocean. Feel what does the waves, always read the water, communicate and react impulsively. In this way we surf the wave, in the way she asks to be riding”.
Roediger has surfed well seven waves in the final. It was his turn smoothly, large aerial and the enormous goiters which enabled him to obtain a 8.3 and a 8.47 to make sure his second place.

During the event, lasted two weeks, competitors have seen each face of Ho'okipa, cloudy winds with small waves, the huge waves with barely enough wind to sail. Fortunately, Bernd was armed with sails Force IV, that provided him with enough power to fully utilize the new wave Board 2018 Hardline referred is particularly keen: ”There have been some changes to the model of 2018 the Hardline that proved really useful! In particular, straightening of the side edges. We've made it slightly wider fore and aft, creating rails more “Parallels”. In essence, a straight edge, stronger and sharper with which curve! This made the table faster cornering, that is to turn, aerial and maneuvers, everything bigger”
