Sandy Beach, Oahu, Hawaii, was the perfect stage for the first stop of the 2024 So Stoked Boogie Series, last weekend.

Three former world champions competed in the Women’s Pro Division – Daniela Freitas (1996, 1997), Ayaka Suzuki Crilley (2018) and Karla Costa (1999).

Ayaka and Karla face each other in the final heat, with the Brazilian coming on top in the end, with a total score of 10,00 points against 9,67 points scored by from the Japanese bodyboarder who just got back in the water after the born of her first child.

On the Pro Mens side, Hawaiian youngblood Kawika Kamai showed talent and motivation by wining the division with 12,16 points, leaving Mack Crilley in second with 10,43 points.

Kawika returned to prominence in the Dropknee division who gathered a total of 20 participants. The Hawaiian faced Justin Cadiente in the final heat, beating him by a difference of 1,70 points (14,27 points versus 12,57 points).

During the quarters finals of the Dk comp, Cadiente was the biggest sensation by beating the 5x world champ Sammy Morretino, and advancing in the draw.

In the Masters (35+), the winner was Dayton Wago; Shaden Ahn won the Junior division; and Mack Crilley lifted the trophy in the Stand up Boogie 6 men final. Sweet! xxx
