Alex Ribeiro wins the Volkswagen SA Open of Surfing

Off 5

Alex Ribeiro has taken out the 2017 Volkswagen SA Open of Surfing at New Pier, in Durban.

Despite the onshore wind, Dairy Beach delivered contestable three-to-four-foot waves for the last day of the prestigious South African surfing competition, a QS3,000 rated event.

In an all-Brazilian final, Ribeiro needed over 15 waves to find two high scores that would defeat Hizunome Bettero. The former Championship Tour campaigner is looking forward to requalifying in 2018 for the elite tour.
