Australian Dave Winchester was crowned champion of the Arica Chilean Challenge 2010 on Sunday. With a sensational performance Dave beat Amaury Laverhne, capturing his first victory on IBA World Tour. With a perfect 10 and 9.75, Dave was almost unbeatable, scoring 19.75 points out of possible 20 and picking up 2000 points on IBA World Ranking in the process.
Final day conditions were perfect with 6-8 feet waves. In the last heat of ACC 2010 Dave showed all of his style & power. On his second wave, Dave did a huge aerial reverse that earned him 9.75 of the judges, leaving Amaury in combination situation. However, the best was yet to come.
"Last year I was third and I want to win here. This is my first victory on tour and this is very special. I was competing like it was a free surf. I missed the first event in Pipeline, which was also a Grand Slam, so now I'll have to run to enter in title race", said Winchester.
In second place Amaury Lavehrne received 1720 points and still in first position on IBA World Ranking. This was Amaury´s second final in a Grand Slam event in 2010.
Now we're heading for Peru!
Looking forward to it!Source: IBA World Tour

Turbo will be providing Jerry the financial backing to follow the IBA World Tour, along with the support to participate in some exciting new concept trips in the coming months.
Glenn Taylor, Head Shaper of Turbo Surf Designs, said the following in relation to Jerry joining the team: "We are stoked to have Jerry join the team, his riding ability along with his attitude both in and out of the water are impressive considering he is still only 20 years old. He has a huge future in the sport. We actually were in discussions with Jerry for the Turbo team prior to the Pipe event but he simply left us with no choice after his performance at the event. Jerry will start off riding the iconic Turbo IV board and I look forward working with him on board design over the coming years."
Jerry said the following in relation to signing with the Turbo team: "I am absolutely pumped on being a part of the Global Turbo team, I really like the image Turbo holds within bodyboarding and the boards are at the forefront of performance and durability. I am really looking forward to traveling and competing with the rest of the team in 2010, all the guys shred and I feel really privileged to be a part of Turbo's big plans for the future. I know it’s going to take a lot of work, but with the epic support I’m getting, I feel really confident that I can achieve good things this year!"

David Hubbard from Hawaii won The Foam Company Drop Knee Pipeline Pro contest on Thursday at the Banzai Pipeline. Hubbard is the 3-time defending world champion and showed why he is considered to be the best Dropknee rider in the world.
"He's such a good contest rider," Feast said of Hubbard. "Maybe it's the Hawaiian genetics. He's got these waves to hone his skills on and today it was perfect." - IBAFull story on the Turbo Pipeline Pro 2010 FINAL DAY COMING SOON!!!

Video: Turbo Pipeline Pro 2010 - Day 2
Day 2 of the Turbo Pipeline Pro presented by Body Glove served for some epic 6feet conditions. The waves did look a bit messy at times and great at others... "this means that the riders have to show there versatility to progress" said Terry McKenna the IBA General Manager who is very happy with the event so far. Apparently there is a 17 foot NW swell headed for the North Shore on Day 3. It will take another full day of surfing to conclude the event. So lets hope for some big swell and good times on Day 3.
"Hawaiian Vaj Lederman, who gained a local wild card into the event, ripped through all of his heats and was by far the stand out surfer of the day.In the round of 96 he put together a combined wave total of 16.90. This included a near perfect 10 for a huge double barrel at Backdoor" - IBA Website
Watch the event LIVE on Fluidzone
Hopefully we'll have a new Pipe Champ by the end of the day.
See you guys soon
