Ben Boylan finished off a boom year in the waves by taking out the November pointscore in the Super Groms division, held in small, tricky conditions.
The victory in the season-ending event guaranteed him the 2009 championship with an adjusted total of 80 points.
Shannon Hatheier rode brilliantly to grab second in the final, followed by Spencer Barnes, Eathen Jackson, Dion Earle and Nathan Martin.
Earle’s 5th placing gave him a grand total of 61 points, locking-in the runner-up slot for 2009 – just pipping (on adjusted points) Andrew Petoumenos with 59 points.
Nathan finished the year at No 4; Eathen at No 5, and Shannon at No 6.
The November pointscore produced the biggest turn-out of competitors of the season, with three heats and a final.
Once again, the surfing was inspirational and points to a very exciting battle for the title in 2010.
