Tristan Roberts: massive backflip maker

Tristan Roberts has won the Kumba West Coast Classic 2014, in clean three-foot waves, at Famous Last Words, in South Africa.

The Pro Men's final saw Iain Campbell coming up against Roberts. Tristan pulled a smooth backflip and roll to start out the heat. Iain came back with a big backflip on a left, and then Tristan answered with a huge backflip on the next wave.

Iain managed to pull two clean air reverses, as well as a nice barrel to roll. Tristan then got a barrel to air reverse on the right, and another big clean invert. The crowd on the beach went crazy with South Africa's two best riders.
