Tasmania Bodyboarding Titles: it's cold out there

Harley Ward has taken out the Surfing Tasmania 2013 State Bodyboarding Titles, at Rebounds.

Despite the onshore winds, the weather was nice and Rebounds was consistent and punchy, with solid 3-4 foot peaks exploding in front of the rocks.

The Open Men's final once again featured George Webster, who was by far the most consistent competitor of the whole event. Cameron Green sat out on first peak patiently waiting for a bomb that never came and had to settle for fourth.

Callum Wells, who has regularly found himself on the podium in the last few years, wasn't able to repeat the stronger performances of his earlier heats, coming in third.

In the end, it was last year's runner-up Harley Ward who went quietly about his business with clean, powerful reverses and rolls, proving to be superior rider and edging out George Webster for the top honours.

It was the year of the first soft landing on the Moon. In 1966, "Peanuts" went surfing. And skateboarding. Or at least, they tried to ride a few waves through mind surfing.

On November 26, 2018, the World Surf League (WSL) suspended the iconic Peahi Challenge, in Maui. Why? There was too much wind, and the conditions were too gnarly for big wave surfing.
