NZ Longboard & SUP Open 2018 – Congrats to all participants

Auckland surfer Thomas Kibblewhite (Red Beach) defended his Men’s Longboard Division title at the Barrett Homes New Zealand Longboard and SUP Open held at Papamoa Beach on Saturday (17thFebruary).

It was a great event all around for participants, winners and spectators with some decent swell remaining clean for the majority of the day in the 1.0 – 1.5m range. It’s always great to see local and national surfing talent battle it out across these two disciplines. Please see the official standings below.

Thanks again to everyone in the community who got involved and helped to make this such as special event.
