Dusty Payne conquered the 2014 Reef Hawaiian Pro, in Haleiwa, after defeating three Dream Tour campaigners in double-overhead waves. It's his second major career win, after the 2013 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro.

Julian Wilson dominated the early moments of the 35-minute final, showing a precise combination of airs, vertical snaps and torquing carves. But within 90 seconds Payne changed the game with a couple of excellent scores.

"It's always been a dream of mine to win here since I watched Andy win. We just surfed epic Haleiwa for four days straight. What more can I say. I just want to have fun and keep surfing. This is the greatest job in the world," expressed an emotional Payne.

"After the first 9 dropped I thought, 'I'm still in this'. Then a flurry of waves came and luckily I got another one. Sitting out this year and watching my peers do well kind of fired me up and I'm excited for next year and whatever it brings. To be honest, I think it was the best thing for me."

Dusty Payne, 26, leaps from No. 97 on the ASP Qualifying Series (QS) ratings to No. 24, and within shot at requalification for the 2015 World Surf League.

The second jewel of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing series is the Vans World Cup at Sunset Beach, and will be surfed between November 24th and December 6th.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
