A host of International and local riders put on a high stakes show for the crowd, as they shredded rail, looking to win the Pacific Blue flights to anywhere in the South Pacific.
Taking out the mens division was Kiwi Nick Poochoff, winning both the Best Overall and best trick pulling a 50-50 Frontside 270 frontside boardsider to regular out.
The womens division was highly competitive with Rebbecca Torr, pushing the skill level, but it was Stefi Luxton who took best trick with a 50-50 swivel switch on the round bar and Christy Prior taking out the Best overall with her styling tail presses.

The event was finished off with Von Zipper putting on a mellow sausage sizzle keeping all spectators and riders stoked.
