Cabarita kid takes out the 2012 single fin classic

20 year old Cabarita ripper Jason Jameson took out the 2012 Single Fin Classic presented by Billabong, in a closely fought final, the result taken to a count-back to be given the win over local lad and 2011 runner-up Noah Lane.

Conditions on the final day were tricky northerly wind-blown peaks about half to under one metre, with marine stingers peppering the line-up making difficult for the 6 finalists.

The final wrapped up 2 days of competition, where surfers competed on boards made before 1985, with one fin, and the antique boards took a bit of a battering on the Burleigh Heads rocks. The surfing standard was exceptional, the surfers putting the surfboards through turns never thought possible when the boards were created.

The final was an up and down battle with all of the surfers taking the lead at various points of the 30 minute battle, 2011 Champion Clint Kimmins starting well early, along with perennial finalist and local, Ryan Grey. Noah Lane then kicked into action with a vertical backhand attack on two long wide waves, with Cabarita’s Jason Jameson and local and 3 time winner, Kyle Robinson scoring a good wave each as well. As the final came down to the final minutes, Lane scored what was one of the best waves of the final, only to watch as Jameson picked off a long running waves, which he aggressively tore into, finishing with a huge re-entry amongst a group of swimmers.

When the final was over, Jameson and Lane could not be separated by the judges on their 2 scoring waves, so the officials had to count back to the highest scoring wave from each surfer. Jameson won compliments of his last wave, which received an average score of 8.5 from the judges.

“I am stoked”, said the 20-year-old Cabarita surfer/shaper. “I will be back next year and every year”

Jameson received the glory of the win, and to return tickets to Bali compliments of Air Asia, which he will take fellow Cabarita surfer, and finalist Brent Savage with him for a holiday.

A new addition to the Single Fin Classic, was the Junior Division, which was a real hit with the spectators, with the young grommets surfing the old single fins to an awesome standard, some of the boards 2-3 times the ages of the kids riding them. 16 year-old local Josh Hyland won the Junior Final, busting out aerial moves not even thought possible when these boards were made. Cabarita grommet Dan Sinclair placed second and another Burleigh ripper, Kane Stone third.

Once again, over 2000 people lined the rocks and grass of Burleigh Point to watch an awesome weekend of surfing, entertained by local performer, Josh Lovegrove, as the sun went down.

Once again an awesome weekend of surfing for the 15th year of the Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Classic.
