Breaka Burleigh Pro.

It was a great week of surfing. Well done to Owen Wright. He surfed his massive frame superbly over the contest to take the win and keep an Australian’s name on the Breaka Trophey. How he does what he does on 2 ft waves with his height is beyond me. I’d rather watch him surf 10 ft Cloudbreak but it was still a blast to see him ripping petite Burleigh. Adam Melling had a shot at taking the final but fell on a wave that would have for sure given him the crown. I think Melling is one of the best surfers to watch with his crisp style and super fast turns. I hope he has a good year this year. A little plug for Dozza.. He was ripping too but bowed out earlier.

Well done again to the Burleigh guys who gave their point up and also to Breaka milk for the support they give the event. Also, I have to say what a good job Surfing Queensland have done and continue to do up here and hanks for the beers last night.
