 Hawaiian Jeff Hubbard has won the IBA TURBO ZICATELA PRO 2012 in flawless 6 foot surf at Puerto Escondido. Hubbard defeated 6x World Champion Guilherme Tamega (BRA) with a high flying air roll and deep barrels in the final to claim his second Zicatela Pro title.

PLC in contention for 2nd World Title !

Pierre-Louis Costes has been catapulted up the rankings, putting him into contention for a second world title

PLC (FRA) has taken out the IBA 2012 Sintra Portugal Pro, defeating South Africa’s Jared Houston in a nail-biting final. PLC opened up his account with a 6.63 out of a possible 10 points for a backflip on his first wave and backed it up with a 6.18 to fend off the South African. Although Houston was slow to start, he managed to lock in a 7.00 point ride, the highest wave score of the final, committing to a lofty backflip on a set wave, but was unable to post anything higher than a 5.55 for the remainder of the final, 0.26 short of the required score.
