Aussies Steal Show At Event One Of 2011 Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour - PIHA, NZ
The class of the Australian surfers Josh Constable and Nic Jones proved too much for the Kiwi surfers at the first event of the 2011 Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour as the two Aussies walked away with big wins in their respective divisions.
The first event of the tour was played out at the south end of Piha Beach in clean 1.0m waves. The bar at Piha has been showing some exceptional form recently and today was no different with some amazing waves coming through all morning.
Constable was odds on favourite to win the event given his lengthy list of international results. He has toured to New Zealand for many years contesting key events on the Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour and took the opportunity to return for the first event of 2011.
In the final Constable scored 16.40 out of a possible 20 to take the win. His final was epitomised by his last wave which scored a 9.0 for three massive vertical backhand re-entries.
“It was a good final” said Constable. “My game plan was to get whatever came my way as it was getting inconsistent out there. Early on I got two waves and one was a keeper. With 15 minutes to go, I decided to sit there and be selective and it paid off when I got the nine point ride and that was it” added a happy Constable post-final.
