World Champion Marcilio Browne crowned Aloha Champion in Hawaii and is now on top of the world.

In a star studded field, this man who has long been regarded as perhaps the world's most well rounded wave sailor, has finally had his day here at Ho'okipa. Sailing perhaps the heat of his life 'Braw' took control from the opening seconds and never looked back.

Despite powerful rides from Camille Juban (Guadeloupe), Kai Lenny (Hawaii) and Jake Schettewi (Hawaii), none could match Braws dominance on this day. The battle for second became the match to watch.

That battle played out with Kai Lenny taking charge in the first half of the 30 minute heat.

Kai then caught the wave of the day and charged the lip to try a massive rotation instead of a lower lip hit and air. In his drive to wow the judges that choice brought him unstuck and the rig was caught up in the foam ball with Kai unable to wrench it free. Kai didn't get a second chance at such a great wave score.

The very next wave saw Camille Juban smash out a perfect one hand goiter that flowed into another hit.

With that exchange Juban secured second and Kai was relegated to third. Schettewi put on a great show but didn't have the speed or power to match the top three on this day.

Results: (top 4)

    1st - Marcilio Browne
    2nd - Camille Juban
    3rd - Kai Lenny
    4th - Jake Schettewi

The results were set from that moment on. A stunning final. A stunning result. And the podium celebration saw Champagne spraying EVERYWHERE!!!! Ha ha ha!!! Watch the livestream, watch the podium video.
