The Reef that Rules served after a classic selection of waves that brought out the best in Shoes members.
With October on the way out, and with big wins needed to turn the tide on the 2019 fight for supremacy in all divisions, the quality of surfing was electrifying.
Clean rights and lefthanders inspired a level of wave demolition that the World Surfing League tour can only look on with dismay!
The Reef was a picture of brilliance across every heat, with loads of slashes, head-dips, barrels and cutties that had the judges working overtime to finesse point scores.
Kash Brown was again on fire to take out the Juniors/Super Groms clash of the century, with Luca Salisbury coming in second, Alec Durante third and Zai Brown fourth.
Pint-sized Evie Fisher pushed her older opponents with an array of smooth, clean and powerful manoeuvres to lock in fifth spot.
The Opens saw the very bet of performances as competitors unleashed just about every move in the book to give the judges headaches. Blake Sawtell hung onto his No 1 spot on the ratings by edging out Matty Cook and Luca Durante in the final.
It was all class, power and finesse in the Masters, with Don Salisbury claiming first place from Brett Daintry, Steve Cryer and Damian O’Connor.
So, the clock is ticking on who will take out the trophies for season 2019, with the final tournament set for 3-4 November, and the back-up date of 10-11.
