Australians win 2018 Azores Airlines World Masters Championship

Off 1

Rob Bain, Layne Beachley, and Dave Macaulay have taken out the Azores Airlines World Masters Championship in the Grand Masters, Women’s Masters and Men’s Masters divisions held in good three-foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.

A World Surf League (WSL) Specialty Event, the event has been treated to an abundance of swell and great performances by some of the legends of surfing from past generations, culminating with today’s crowning of the champions.

Bain and Cheyne Horan took it to the water first in the Men’s Grand Masters final, and while the first half of their matchup was a relatively low-scoring affair, Bain started throwing fireworks on the 15-minute mark.
