Saturday, 5 August 2017

Another day of exciting Open Men's action as Longboard and Logger divisions tore up superb two-foot walls at Cabarita Beach at the Australian Longboard Titles.

Perennial longboard standout and local Tweed surfer Dane Pioli (Tweed Heads, NSW) took a double header victory across the Open Menís Longboard and Logger divisions. Pioli unleashed a string of traditional and high-performance manoeuvres to post a 15.25 heat total in the quarterfinal of the Open Menís Loggers division and a 15.75 two-wave total in the quarterfinal of the Open Menís Longboard. Pioli will meet Jason Caldow (Noosa, Qld) William Crowe (Collaroy, NSW) and Ben Johnson (Pottsville, NSW) in the semi-finals.

NSW surfers proceeded to take a clean sweep of victories across the remaining Open Longboard quarterfinals with William Crowe (Collaroy, NSW), Declan Wyton (Annandale, NSW) and Max Weston (Avalon, NSW) all earning a win and sealing a position into the upcoming semi-finals.

The Open Menís Logger quarterfinals saw interstate competitors Ben Considine (Barwon Heads, Vic) and Clinton Guest (Kawana, Qld) combine style and grace to take victory in their respective heats. Considine and Guest both posted respectable heat totals in excess of 14.75 points to earn themselves a spot into the semi finals. They were joined by Frank Murphy (Angourie, NSW) who took a win in the remaining Open Logger quarterfinal.

The 2017 Australian Surf Festival continues Sunday from 7:30am the more of the Australian Longboard Titles.
