Harley Ingleby Wins Second ASP World Longboard Title in China

mercredi 10 décembre 2014Information World Surf League

Harley Ingleby (AUS) defeated Phil Rajzman (BRA) to claim his second ASP World Longboard Longboard #Longboard Title at the GoPro World Longboard Longboard #Longboard Championships, China hosted by Wanning (WLC). Pumping typhoon swell in the 3 to 4 foot range groomed by offshore winds set the stage for the world’s best longboarders to battle it out for the Title.

It’s been five years since Ingleby won his maiden ASP World Longboard Longboard #Longboard Title and now he’s realised his dream of securing a second crown. Ingleby lost his Round 1 non-elimination heat as he struggled to adjust to the waves. From Round 2 on you could see the confidence grow as he stormed through the draw to finally beat the form surfer of the event in the Final.

“This is the best feeling in the world !” Ingleby said. “Winning my first Title was more of a relief, but this one feels incredible. Phil (Rajzman) has been on fire all event, at one point in the Final he only needed a 4.50 to take the lead and since he’s been posting 8s and 9s all week — I was so nervous. I had a bad start to the event and some heats I just needed to grind out. In the Final everything went my way and I’m still in shock. It’s great to have won, all of the surfers in this event are so talented I look up to them all. I’ve been working with ASP as the surfer rep to get this event going and I’d to get more events up and running and hopefully leave the sport in a better state than when I joined it.”
