2014 NSW Bodyboard State Titles: long walls ahead

Joe Bourke triumphed in the first event of the 2014 NSW Bodyboard State Titles, held in clean and improved three-to-four foot conditions, at Jones Beach, Kiama.

After scoring a late entry into the Open Men division and seeing his brother Darcy Bourke take out the Junior Men final, Joe Bourke proceeded to tear apart his competition to claim victory.

The bodyboarder was able to perform a chain of aerial antics to net himself a 14.13 heat total to win the contest. Event standout Liam Gray put up a valiant effort, but ultimately had to settle for the runner-up spot with a heat total of 12.47 points.
