Jake Stone: commitment is everything

Australian bodyboarder Jake Stone has conquered the 2010 Deeply Surfusiom, in Ferrol, Spain.

In the last leg of the European tour, Stone defeated Yeray Matinez with a stand out bodyboarding performance.

“I can’t believe that”, said Stone. “I never gave up, I just said no way am I going to be beaten. I’m so stoked”.

The Drop Knee final was a classic matchup of two Australian prone riders that just also happen to be very proficient on the knee: Dave Winchester and Damian King.

Winny opened up with an 8 and took an early lead and hammered it home with a few 6’s & 7’s that left Kingy in “Combo-land”.

But in true King fashion he snagged a deep barrel/ floater (1o pointer) in the final 2 minutes that left him chasing a 4 point something but time simply ran out.

Winny takes the crown. The 2010 IBA World Tour says goodbye to Europe and heads for the last stage: the Bahia Bodyboarding Show, in Brazil.

The Chilean big wave surf break of Punta de Lobos and the idyllic Australian point break of Noosa have been officially declared the 9th and 10th World Surfing Reserves, respectively.
