Mitch Rawlins continued his domination of the 2008 Human Pro Tour with another win in fun sized peaks at Logan’s Beach, Warrnambool, Victoria, taking out the Coastal Real Estate Pro presented by Southern Guns surfshop.
His competitive savvy was pushed to the limit by West Australian Chad Jackson who surprised a lot of spectators with his small wave riding technique notching up some of the highest scores of the day.
Third place went to Sydney bodyboarder Dave Winchester who peaked early with his mind blowing semi-final performance. Victoria’s best competitive Bodyboarder Jayden Hunt finished in fourth.
“I wasn’t sure who won that final to tell you the truth” said Rawlins. “It must have been so close between me and Winny and Chad. I did get one wider one that went all the way to shore and I stalled and got a sick little tube that went for heaps…It was fun out there”.

Congratulations to Darren Halse, fresh from his giant killing in the Hawaii Pipe comp, he returns to competition taking the English National title in the Open and the Drop Knee.
In the Open division, Darren was pushed hard by fellow finalist's Damian Prisk, Jack Johns and Phil Milson. The Drop Knee was also very tight with Brad Hoult and Ollie Medland both with chances to win it. Aidan Salmon however, couldn't quite find his rhythm in the final.
Completing another double is Luke Brabyn taking out both the Under 18's and the Under 16's. Keeping it in the family was Luke's brother Sam, winning the Under 14's category.
