Justin Redman and Georgia Young have been crowned the 2014 Western Australia longboarding champions, at Avalon.
The iconic pointbreak delivered clean, long running faces in the 3-4 feet range (2.0 metres), perfectly suited to the traditional longboards, and high performance stand up paddle boards (SUP).
The experienced Justin Redman used his repertoire of new and old school manoeuvres to take out both the Open Men's and Over 35 Masters State Titles, in emphatic style.
The talented goofy-footer proved he was one of the standout performers of the event, scoring a near perfect 9.25 to claim the "Wave of the Weekend', en route to the Open Men's final.
"The recent ASP LQS event here at Avalon certainly helped me. It's been a while since I've attend a National Titles and I must say I'm pretty excited to head over to Coffs and give it my all," says Redman.
Georgia Young took authority of the Women's final from the get go, opening her account with a 8.25, and backed it up with another excellent score to finish on a combined total of 16.25 points.
"It's been an amazing weekend with some great waves,". As the defending Australian Open Women's Longboard champion I'm excited to get to Coffs Harbour and try to defend my Aussie Title," adds Young.
