Hot Surfers Burn Up the Neart Epic

Congratz to ALL the surfers that competed in yesterday’s Reaction LongBoard Epic @ Neart in the West of Ireland Charity SIM group. We all saw some really hot and excellent surfing all day, it was very cool to be up in the judges area and watching all the action up close! At Neart, the SLSA trialled a new wave count system where each surfer gets an equal number of waves in the Semi’s and Finals. I think it worked well and didnt cause a large time blow out which was our main worry before the event. Let the SLSA know your opinion about how that worked over at this post in the forum.

The result was made extra exciting when we had ties for 2nd place in the first and second semi finals. With 8 final qualifiers we had to call a lightening tie-breaker to select 3 surfers to join Pova, VW and Christine who had won their respective semi finals and had automatically qualified for the final. The tie-breaker saw some of the best surfing of the day as the 5 2nd place qualifiers battled with everything they had for that spot in the final. Quench, Paeida and Desne all made it through and made the final an exciting and hard fought contest.

The Results of the Final were as follows:

  • 1st place QUENCH spotter with 17.83
  • 2nd place VW Sands with 17.50
  • 3rd place Christine Daffodil with 17.16
  • 4th place Pova Rustamova with 16.66
  • 5th place Paeida Allen with 16.50
  • 6th place Desne Aabye with 16.00

The overall Season Title is open to virtually anyone in the top 8 and 2nd and 3rd place title open to more! See all the Rankings here. Christine, VW and Desne have all improved there positions in the top ten and Quench’s win saw him rise from 47th to 11th place overall!!

The happy place getters manbo!ing to the crowd!
