Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour Finals 26/27 May

Port Waikato weekend of SUP
The final contest at Port Waikato wrapped up with the mother of all parties, with live performances by the Feelers, and a fireworks show that lit up the surrounding countryside.  Starboard NZ gave an 8'5" Pocket Rocket to the Overall Series Winner Shayne Baxter, who surprised event sponsors Surfing NZ and Hyundai with a prize of his own - a hand carved and shaped paddle - presented with true mana.  Starboard also pulled two out of the bag, with gifts of a 12'0 Big Easy to both Howard Spencer, the big guy from Hyundai NZ, and Greg Townsend, from Surfing NZ.

The tour kicked off in Sandy Bay early Feb, followed by St Clair Beach, Dunedin, then the nationals in Whangamata before the finals in Port Waikato.
