RUSSELL WINTER RETAINS NIKE NIGHT SURF TITLE

On Friday 21st September, local Newquay surfer Russell Winter dominated the finals of the second annual Nike Night Surf at Fistral Beach in Cornwall. In the first UK Pro Tour stop of the year, Winter’s wave selection and quality of surfing manoeuvres left the other finalists struggling to find a winning response in the 2 – 4ft swell.
Under the artificial flood lighting, which make the waves more difficult to read, Winter’s confidence and natural ability shone through to take a points lead over the original final favourites Lewis Clinton and an in-form Jayce Robinson.

In the Women’s event 14-year-old Croyde surfer Peony Knight claimed her first senior women’s title and became one of the youngest surfers to ever take a win at this level in the UK.  
The Pro Jnr. title was won by rising star Jobe Harriss from Bude who, after progressing through three rounds in the Open category, picked off his opponents in the Pro Jnr. division and battled in the finals to take the top podium position after being pushed hard by 2nd place surfer Luis Eyre.

Dave Reed of the UK Pro Surf Tour said “This was another fantastic Night Surf event by Nike, with competitors giving a display of progressive surfing in contest conditions over both days.”
All podium finishers shared competition winnings from the largest prize purse on the UK Pro Tour and picked up the first points in the tour series. On Saturday night spectators also enjoyed a special screening of Kai Neville's Surfing film ‘Dear Suburbia’, featuring Nike Surfing’s Kolohe Andino & Julian Wilson.
