Jared Houston has been crowned 2018 APB World Tour champion, in Nazaré, Portugal.
The South African clinched his second world bodyboarding title after beating 2017 champion, Ian Campbell, in a superheat final. The decisive clash got underway in pumping eight-to-ten-foot waves at Praia do Norte.
Houston, who had won his first APB World Tour title in 2015, defeated Tanner McDaniel in the Nazaré Pro final and forced a surf-off with his fellow countryman.

The 2018 Nazaré Pro kicked off at Praia do Norte with the big, heavy shore break conditions we associate with this world-famous Portuguese beach break.
Portugal was on a high in 2017 after the high flying action at last year's Nazaré Pro when local legend Tó Cardoso won the comp in fine style, and Joana Schenker from Sagres became the first Portuguese to wear the world title crown in the history of surfing.
APB Tour Director, Alex Leon, says it was great to be back at the remarkable Praia do Norte, "probably one of the best beach breaks in the world that can hold really heavy waves which is perfect for real high-performance bodyboarding."

The newly-named 2018 World Cup Gran Canaria Frontón King will run from October 20 through November 3, at Galdar, in the Canary Islands.
This time, the legendary event is not part of the official APB World Tour schedule. However, the organization promises an unforgettable showdown with increased prize money, and a new competitive format.
"After months of negotiations, we were we could not meet all APB requests because many of them lacked administrative and sports irregularities that were not feasible," the Fronton King organizers told in an official statement.
