Joe Clarke: he won't shave despite having won

Joe Clarke has stolen the highest place in the podium at the 2014 RAW Knights Beach Pro, held in clean and punchy three-to-four feet waves (1.5 meters) at Port Elliott, South Australia.

Joe made his intentions clear from the moment the final got underway by boosting into an 8.67. He then used his explosive and polished attack to notch up a 9.07 for a high speed flip in the final, to claim victory at the 2014 RAW Knights Beach Pro.

"I'm so happy to have got this win, it's been a while” laughed Joe. The waves were pretty sick out here today and I managed to find two good waves that allowed me to lock in decent scores at the start. I'm so stoked," says Joe Clarke.

Watson took an early lead, but Clarke sent his opposition into "combo-land", with eight minutes remaining. The Knights Beach local was left chasing two solid scores that never came.

Marshal Watson finished runner-up, with Lachlan Cramsie keeping third and Cade Sharpe fourth. The next event on the 2014 ABA Pro Tour will be in Mandurah, Western Australia, in June.
