Red Bull unleashed is a wrap! And the first ever wave pool competition was a success. “It’s cool!” said a spectating Jordy Smith “you both have an equal opportunity, and there’s no two ways about it, the best surfer always wins. You can’t afford to fall so you really have to walk the fine line between pushing it to the limit and pushing it too far.”
Albee Layer took the cake in a final vs New Zealand’s Billy Stairmand in front of an audience of two-thousand plus hooting ten feet away from the action while a DJ pumped out the featured surfers favourite tunes. “I didn’t know what to expect coming here,” said Mr Layer “but it’s been incredible. Surfing so close to so many people, music playing, heaps of energy in the air, to get the win is crazy. If more events were like this, I’d do them!”
