TravelSIM Team Australia Qualifies into ISA Aloha Cup Final at Nicaragua ISA World Masters Surfing Championship

21/7/12: TravelSIM Team Australia is through to the final of the ISA Aloha Cup, with day six of the Nicaragua ISA World Masters Surfing Championship completed today.

Another full day of Repechage heats followed by the semi-finals of the ISA Aloha Cup ran in two to three-foot waves, with ever-present offshore winds grooming them to perfection.

USA (8 athletes) and Hawaii (6) are ahead of the pack for the fight for Team Gold and the perpetual Eduardo Arena Trophy. They are followed by Brazil (5), Peru (5) and Team Australia (4). Japan had a difficult day, losing three of its five remaining surfers.

Team Australia qualified through the hour-long Aloha Cup semi-final with a 55.75 total, finishing behind Hawaii, 57.4, with Peru, 41.22 and Venezuela, 26.73 knocked out in sudden death elimination.

The ISA Aloha Cup is a unique tag-team event that is run at every ISA World Championship, featuring eight invited nations. Each team includes five athletes (4 men, 1 woman) to compete in the semifinal/final format. The Final will be the last heat of the day tomorrow, July 21.

In the Men’s Kahunas Repechage Round 4 heats, Emerald Beach surfer John Schmidenberg (AUS), 9.03, kept his title hopes alive with a runner-up placing behind Peru’s Magoo de la Rosa, 13.03.

Woolgoolga’s Mark Cameron also progressed today through his Men’s Grand Masters Repechage Round heat, while fellow Australian David Hammond (Avalon Beach, NSW), 4.30, wasn’t so lucky in the same round, eliminated from the event.
