Jaeger Stone: mastering his Western Australia swells | Photo: John Carter

Jaeger Stone conquered the Elite division of the 2015 Windsurfing Wave Sailing Competition, held during the Lancelin Ocean Classic, in Western Australia.

The region was blessed with the traditional epic sea breezes. Winds were ranging between 20 and 30 knots. The one-to-two meter swell on offer kept the waves at a perfect size for the pros to show off practiced skills.

Despite a very close series of heats, Jaeger Stone took home the trophy for the 2015 Windsurfing Wave Sailing Competition, leaving Dieter Van Der Eyken, from Belgium and local Ben Severne in the runner-up positions.

Jaeger Stone grew up halfway between Gnaraloo and Margaret River. In 2011, he won the Australian Wavesailing Titles, and in 2014, he finished the PWA Pozo World Cup in fourth place.

Around 50 sailors participated in the wave riding competition. Jane Seman (Women), Steve Sheen (Open), Jonah Desforges (Masters), Mark Swain (Novice) and Anton Pain (Youth) won the remaining divisions.
