KIA @coldhawaii World Cup: Day Seven, Köster Crowned

We’ve known that Philip Köster claimed the World Champion title at the KIA @coldhawaii World Cup since day three when the double elimination was completed. The thing is that he wasn’t official crowned until day seven. A very happy Philip Köster stood on the top step of the podium, followed by Ricardo Campello in 2nd place and Victor Fernandez Lopez in third.

“Cold Hawaii fits my style perfectly. I did what I felt like out there, and it was fun. It was tricky conditions, but the day of the finals we had such a good day. I found every wave out there, and could just jump when I wanted. Cold Hawaii is a really great place and I would also come here to train. It’s perfect here,” said Philip Köster after being crowned World Champion. Since he’s 17, he is by the way, the youngest World Champion in history.
