Another Good Result for Stokesy

Posted on July 15, 2009 - Filed Under Surftech Boards | By

Surftech team rider Alan Stokes has has another good result at the UKPSA Sri Lanka Surf Championships at Arugam Bay.

A close contest led to a final result with Alan and Richie Sills tied for first place, with a count back (best one wave scored) leading to Alan gaining second place.

In the first semi final Richie Sills and Sam Lamroy (Newcastle) surfed consistently to edge out Lee Bartlet and Micah Lester.
Four Newquay surfers made up semi final two. Alan Stokes dominated from the beginning with two high scoring rides.

The final got underway in front of a packed crowd including the President of Sri Lanka’s son and the Minister for tourism.

In a tactical heat the four surfers struggled to find waves in the early stages.
Richie Sills found his rhythm and picked off two high scoring rides leaving the other three scratching to catch up. Alan Stokes was close behind in second and a final wave with two huge turns left the crowd guessing if he had done enough.
In the end Richie and Alan were tied for first place. A count back (best one wave scored) saw Richie take the title with Alan Stokes following in second, Mark Harris third and Sam Lamroy fourth.
