– Career-First WSL QS Final for South African Teenager

Burleigh Heads, QLD/AUS (Sunday, January 28, 2018) – South Africa’s Adin Masencamp delivered his career best performance in World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) event when he finished runner-up to Australian Nick Squiers in the QS1,000 Flight Centre Burleigh Pro in choppy 1.0 to 1.3 metre waves at Burleigh Point in Queensland, Australia on Sunday

The 18-year-old from Strand in the Western Cape was the form surfer on the final day, posting eight and nine point rides (out of 10) in each of his five heats, including one of the highest heat totals of the event – 18.15 (out of 20) – to defeat defending Burleigh Pro champ Oney Anwar (IND) in their semi-final duel.

Masencamp could not find the waves he needed to overcome Squiers in the finale but will leave Burleigh proud to have reached his first QS Final. He pocketed R15,000 and 750 precious rankings points, which sees him jump to No. 17 on the latest QS leaderboard.

“This has been an amazing experience for me,” Masencamp said. “I was in an amazing rhythm all day but sort of lost it in the final which was a shame. Nick (Squiers) is such an amazing surfer and deserves the win. My focus this year is to move up the seed list so to get a final this early in the season is amazing.”

36-year-old Squiers from the NSW South Coast has been hunting for a QS win since he took out the Carve Pro Maroubra in 2016. Despite a painful blue-bottle sting while paddling out for the final, the powerful natural-footer posted a winning heat total of 17.40 and ran away with the win.

“It’s been a little while between wins so it feels really good to be back on the podium,” Squires said. “It was great that the waves showed up here at Burleigh, it was pretty much pumping by the end of the day. My seed has dropped a bit in the last few years so to start this season off with a win is great for the confidence.”

The Flight Centre Burleigh Pro women’s event was won by Kobie Enright (AUS) who outpointed Sara Wakita (JPN) in the final to claim back-to-back QS victories after her victory in Maroubra last weekend.

“I’m stoked – I’m completely lost for words right now,” Enright said. “I didn’t think I’d make one final this year, let alone two. I was definitely waiting for it to pick up a bit this week, small waves are not my strong point at all. Sara was ripping all event and I watched her in the last few heats, but to be honest I just tried to surf the way I surf and hope for the best.”

KONTIKI BEACH, Netanya / Israel (Saturday, January 20, 2018) – Matthew McGillivray (ZAF) has won the SEAT Pro Netanya pres. by Reef today in shifty 1.0 to 1.5 metre surf, defeating Charly Martin (FRA) in the event’s final. The last day of competition resumed in solid surf from the storm that hit the Israeli coast yesterday and conditions cleaned up to deliver great conditions for the finals.

The first World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 3,000 rated event of 2018 unfolded in great conditions over the ten days of the event’s waiting period, culminating today with McGillivray’s victory.

“This feels amazing,” McGillivray exclaimed. “This is my third year on the QS, I’ve put in a lot of hard work so it feels amazing to finally get a win. Yesterday the waves were huge with the big storm so we were wondering what was going to happen today, but it got better and better and there were some amazing waves in the final.”

The 20 year-old from Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, had an incredible run from Round One through to the final, scoring seven heat totals above 14 points, including a near-perfect 18.33 in the semis to eliminate one of the strongest surfers this week, California’s Kei Kobayashi.

This victory today marks McGillivray’s first on the Qualifying Series and will see him take the number one spot on the QS rankings before the next leg of events, already underway in Australia.
“Israel’s an amazing country,” McGillivray continued. “Everyone we met here was so passionate about surfing. There are way more surfers that I could have ever expected and everyone was super friendly and very supportive on the beach. We’ve had great food every day, it’s really been a great trip!”

In the final, Martin opened with a little tube ride and a good turn for a 6.5 to turn an early lead on the heat. Ten minutes in, the surfers took off on back-to-back waves, each surfing a similar right breaking wave with a massive first turn and a couple of follow-up maneuvers. McGillivray got the nod with a 7.2 over Martin’s 6.9 (both out of 10).

The South African continued to build his tally with a big forehand rotation to post an excellent 8.33 and take the lead. Despite many efforts, Martin couldn’t come back from this blow and ended runner-up.

The surfer from Guadeloupe who finished his 2017 season with a win at a QS3,000 in China, opens his 2018 campaign with 2,250 points and a great confidence boost.

“Obviously I would have loved to win this one too,” Martin said. “I felt like I had done the hardest part, but I’m stoked to get a final at my first event of the season. Last year I didn’t get a good result until November so I’m definitely starting a lot better. I’ve had a blast, the past ten days just flew by and the people and the country are great.”

After a stellar run through the earlier rounds, Kei Kobayashi (USA) couldn’t quite find the same rhythm in his semi-final bout with McGillivray. The young Californian looked a little anxious in the semis and missed the landings of a couple of aerials, ultimately conceding the win to the South African.

In the second semi-final, Nelson Cloarec (FRA) had a strong lock on the heat with only minutes remaining on the clock, but Martin pulled a big maneuver to turn the situation. Losing his priority and needing a big number, Cloarec placed equal third to start his 2018 qualifying effort.

In the quarterfinals, the surprise eliminations of Miguel Pupo (BRA) and Jorgann Couzinet (FRA) came at the hands of Cloarec and McGillivray respectively. Conditions early this morning were extremely difficult with shifting peaks and closeout sets across the beach.

Top 10 Finish for Adin Masencamp at Jeep World Junior Surfing Championship in Australia

January 10th, 2018 No comments

Adin Masencamp (Strand) delivered the best result of the seven South Africans in the world’s premier event for surfers aged 18-and-under when he finished ninth at the Jeep World Junior Championship which ended in wind affected one metre waves at Bombo Beach in Kiama, NSW, Australia on Wednesday.

After opening his account with a third place finish in his opening heat, Masencamp went on to blitz Kehu Butler (NZL) in Round 2 before causing one of the biggest upsets of the event by eliminating Brazilian standout Mateus Herdy in Round 3.

Up against Indonesian Rio Waida and Yuji Nishi (JPN) in Round 4 on the final day of competition, the South African narrowly missed out in the tricky conditions that made wave selection a lottery as the top two in the heat progressed to the quarter-finals.

The men’s title was won by Finn McGill (HAW) who dominated the final against Japanese prodigy Joh Azuchi (JPN), putting together an electric performance to post two excellent wave scores, an 8.00 and an 8.90 to bring his accumulative total to 16.90. The Hawaiian linked together a chain of giant backside turns in the final heat, which saw Azuchi requiring a combination of two-scores to overtake McGill’s lead.

“I can barely talk right now, it hasn’t really sunk in just yet,” McGill said. “After coming off an injury I wasn’t expecting too much of a result at this event. I was never feeling in much of a rhythm and seemed to just be sneaking through heats. It all changed in my quarter-final and all of a sudden I began to build and feel the flow. Then once I was in the final I knew I had just one more heat to surf, so I just had to wait for the good ones and surf them well.”

The women’s event was won by Vahine Fierro (PYF) who was awarded a wildcard into the WJC after missing out on qualifying. The young Tahitian built on her performances through each round and saved her best performance until the final where she met good friend Summer Macedo (HAW).

Fierro took a commanding lead early with a 12.83 heat total awarded for a silky smooth approach in the trying conditions. Macedo failed to find a rhythm leaving Fierro to become the first ever WSL World Champion to come from Tahiti.

“This is such an amazing way to end my junior career and kick off my 2018 season,” Fierro said. “This is the first time I have been to the World Junior Championship and to win is so special, especially when I was so close to missing out on the event. Today was crazy with a lot of heats to surf but after a few lay days we were all so excited to surf which made it easier. That was my third Final with Summer which is so cool as we are great friends. I’m really speechless at the moment, I just can’t believe it.”

Jake Elkington Wins Opening Encounter at Jeep World Junior Surfing Championship in Australia

January 4th, 2018 No comments

South Africa’s Jake Elkington started his challenge for honours at the World Surf League (WSL) Jeep World Junior Championship (WJC) by winning his opening heat and progressing directly to Round 3 of the sport’s most prestigious event for surfers aged 18-and-under.

Competing in clean one metre waves at Bombo Beach at Kiama, NSW, Australia, the 2017 WSL Africa Junior champion from Kommetjie stayed busy throughout the 25 minute encounter. Posting his counting scores of 6.43 and 5.67 (each out of 10) on his last two rides, Elkington overtook his opponents Rio Waida (IND) and Ocean Macedo (HAW) who were relegated to cutthroat Round 2 elimination heats.

Of the five men and two women in the WSL Africa regional squad who received coveted invitations to compete in the annual yearend event, only Elkington advanced directly to Round 3.

Adin Masencamp (Strand), who finished 17th in the 2016 WJC last January, placed third behind Hawaiian standout Barron Mamiya and Jhonny Guerrero Yauri (PER) in his opening clash. The former WSL Africa junior champ and will be up against Te Kehukehu Butler (NZL) when competition resumes with the winner moving through to join the Round 1 winners in Round 3 and the loser eliminated from the event.

Joshe Faulkner (Jeffreys Bay) and Max Elkington, Jake’s younger sibling, were unfortunate to be drawn together in Heat 9. Joh Azuchi (JAP) posted a 6.50 on his first ride and that proved to be the only score over four points in the heat and he went on dispatch the South African pair to Round 2, where the seeding will see them meet again in Heat 8 of Round 2, with only the winner remaining in contention.

Ford van Jaarsveldt (Kommetjie) was awarded a wildcard to compete in the WJC and came close to winning his opening match-up after earning a 6.67, the highest single score of his first heat. But he was overtaken by Che Allen (BRB) who needed a 5.34 for the heat win and was rewarded with a 5.97 on his final ride. Van Jaarsveldt will face Ryland Rubens (USA) in Round 2.

WSL Africa women’s junior champ Sophie Bell (Salt Rock) and runner-up Kayla Nogueira (uMhlanga) each finished third in their respective heats. The highly experienced Bell will take on Alyssa Spencer (USA) in Round 2 while debutant Nogueira needs to overcome the threat posed by local Zahli Kelly (AUS).

The 2017 Jeep World Junior Championship will run from January 4-12 at Bombo Beach in Kiama on the Beautiful South Coast of NSW. It will feature the top 36 Men and 18 Women Junior Surfers from around the globe. All the action can followed live on www.worldsurfleague.com or the WSL App starting from 10 pm (SA time) daily.
