The Reef that Rules turned on one of the most entertaining in recent memory. Contest Report From Syd.
Not only did the swell keep serving up solid sets, wave after wave; but contestants one and all showed up with amazing intent to smash every wave that emerged in both directions. So good, so solid was the wave carving in every division that the judges were hard pressed to stay in the zone in every heat. Fact is, if WSL think they have the best parade of contest wave destruction going round, they are kidding themselves!!!
