2010 US Waveski Championships
by Steve Farthing

Another spur of the moment decision and I'm off to Ventura in California for the US Waveski Champs. I really should plan these trips out in advance but its kind of exciting trying to get it all together at the last minute, thanks Brian for letting me in. Scouring the net for cheap airfares and V Australia came out in front, the flight was nice pity they decided to leave my ski in Sydney. I hooked up with Blair Moore on Tuesday night and we rented a room at The Crown Plaza, which is right on the beach walking distance from the Comp site. I thought you were only supposed to get jet lag on the way home, 4 hrs sleep and I'm up before sunrise and no ski actually they lost my ski. Anyway all was not lost, ran into Tyler Laustern later that day and got to ride the TL gun.

The Competition started on Friday morning or should say competitions as the SUP class was run in parallel on the adjoining peak. 15 minute heats best 2 waves with a beach start for the heats with finals 20 minutes and best 3 waves was how it was going to run. The waves were a consistent 2-3 feet with the odd bigger set and some great rides were had throughout the day. Blair Moore, Tyler Laustern and Fletcher Burton were all standouts conformably making it through to the quarter finals, my ski finally turned up and I also made it through.


Day 2 and the surf was holding a similar size and had glassed off, with the promise of a pulse heading into the finals. Semi final 1 and Tyler and myself battled it out for a place in the final while Semi final 2 saw the shock elimination of Fletcher Burton with Blair and Geoff Jennings progressing through. Final time and the promised pulse had arrived with C street reeling of some nice 3-4 feet waves. We all spread out which was nice Blair on the lefts, myself on the rights and Tyler and Geoff in the middle. I had some great rides with an absolute screamer just before the buzzer. Blair was milking everything out of the lefts and also landed a corkscrew air. Tyler was also ripping but failed to ride out of a big right had air.
There can only be on winner and Blair got the prize from myself, Tyler and Geoff in a high scoring final. Blair also pipped me in the Masters for victory with Tyler taking out the new age division as well as the No 1 US ranked surfer.

Thanks Brian, Roy and Roger for running a great event cant wait for next year.
