The men’s 9’ & Single Longboard division… yeeww! What a cracker it was. After a wild start to the event, conditions cleaned up for the final day of this world-renowned longboarding competition. Tyler, Harrison, Thomas and Zye hit the water in bombing and clean Pererenan River Mouth perfection.
Never before considered a longboard wave and rarely ridden by longboarders thanks to the small and competitive line-up, it was a pleasure to watch these four surfers show that heavy single fins aren’t limited to shoulder high surf.
The final started with Harrison riding a bomb from out the back all the way onto the sand. Spectators cheered as he attempted to run off his board and up the beach before tripping and landing flat on his back. From then on it was 30 minutes of non-stop surf, with every competitor riding a handful of over-head waves.
This event reached a new peak in 2015 and every single beachgoer was entertained with world-class longboarding of the like that has previously only been seen on film.
