New $30,000 wheels drive longboarder to victory
NOOSA's Josh Constable, pictured, yesterday won Australian Professional Longboarding's biggest prize pool by winning the final event of the Suzuki Pro Longboarding Tour in excellent waves at Broken Head, Byron Bay.
A Suzuki Grand Vitara was the prize for yesterday's winner, valued in excess of $30000.
In a very tightly contested final that saw multiple changes in the lead, Constable edged out Coff's Harbour's Harley Ingelby with an excellent 8.4 ride which he picked up with just three minutes remaining in the 30-minute final!
Tweed Heads surfer Chelsea Williams put on an amazing display to easily win the Open Women's final. Williams is a multiple Australian Open champion.
She scored two excellent 8-point rides which included nose rides, powerful on- face moves and even a clean barrel ride in the one-metre waves.
