Fierce battles at Winkipop

November 23, 2017 BY

Torquay Boardriders Senior aggregate 5 ran at Winkipop on the october 21 in two- to three-foot rippable conditions.

The pick of the waves was toward the start of the morning with the open and under 18 competitors taking full advantage of the line-up and putting on a show for all to watch.

As the tide and wind started to fill in, the conditions started to deteriorate but that didn’t deter competitors, with fierce battles going down all day.

The Under 16s and Grand Masters final were both taken out by less than a point and with the implementation of our live heats scoring system it was interesting for all of the crowd watching the contest. Massive congratulations to the winners of each division (listed right).

Open Men – Todd rosewall
Open Women – India robinson
Masters – Marcus Huppatz
Grand Masters – Damien Wilson
Legends – rowan Sapwell
Under 18 Boys – Tully Wylie
Under 16 Girls – Bella Wilson

The last aggregate for the seniors is scheduled for November 11 at Jan Juc. The TBC end of year presentation will be held on November 18, with all junior and senior divisional winners crowned at Bar 61, Torquay.
