The Third and final National Team Trials for the World Surfing Games 2008 took place in good contest conditions at Beach Break, Sans Souci, this past Saturday. After this event, the final opportunity to compile qualification points for the National Team will be at the SURFING TNT NATIONAL SURFING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2008, taking place July 12 &13th, 2008.
At this weekends event, SATT President Keith Lewis won a local contest for the first time since winning the Junior National Crown back in 1996, at this very location. He narrowly outscored local surfer/shaper ALAN DAVIS by 0.2 points to take the victory. JASON APPARICIO secured 3rd place, partly due to poor wave selection in less than epic surf during the final. SHANE HENNAMAN made yet another final, showing great consistency, and was rewarded with a 4th place for his efforts.
1) KEITH LEWIS
2) ALAN DAVIS
3) JASON APPARICIO
4) SHANE HENNAMAN
Jason Apparicio was very solid through the event, but could not find the waves in the final to seal the deal.
