Jonathan Gonzalez has conquered the 2015 Nixon Surf Challenge in Hainan Island, China.

The surfer from the Basque Country, 34, was voted by his peers the overall winner of the event, more than ten years after his first victory in San Sebastian, Spain.

But it wasn’t an easy win for Gonzalez. In humid, hot weather with temperatures often hitting the mid-30s, Marlon Lipke and Gony Zubizarreta were both also in contention throughout the five-day contest window.
