Banting Back on the Podium

Matt Banting wins The Great Lakes Pro WQS Event

Noa Deane Stab High

The final was held in pumping surf at Tuncurry Breakwall where Matt posted a 9.00 and an 8.00 to take the heat from childhood rival Cooper Chapman.

"Banting put on a solid clinic of surfing over the duration of the event, however the natural-footer hit his stride in the final posting two excellent scores, a 9.00 and an 8.00 to amass a giant 17.00 two-wave heat total. The win at Tuncurry puts Banting's qualification campaign into full-swing as he comes into the Vissla Central Coast Pro, Burton Automotive Pro and the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro at Manly."

Matt rode the GT model throughout the event:

5'10 x 18 7/8 x 2 5/16 Rounded Square (26.6L)
5'10.5 x 18 3/4 x 2 5/16 Rounded Square (26.6L)
6'0 x 18 3/4 x 2 3/8 Rounded Square (27.8L)
