Reubyn Ash smashed his way to victory in the inaugural Relentless Lynmouth Super Series today with a mixture of old school grunt and new school cool. He combo’d Russell who sat on a 9.17 and a 8.60 in the final at Blacklands, which was perfect 3-4 foot, running and glassy, with a double alley-oop 9.77 and a perfect 10 for three monstrous hacks and a series of hyperspace floaters. All the finalists put on a display of groundbreaking and leg aching surfing at the break known for it’s long lefts and many moods by going round, up-over and through sections previously untouched by fibreglass and man.

Assisted by local Craig ‘Barny’ Berry the call was made 24 hours earlier to take atvantage of a strong swell and light and favourable winds but it meant an early start to get the most out of the mid morning high tide peak at ‘car parks’. Twenty eight of Britannia’s finest plus four local wild cards tucked into the feast and first upset was Woolly boy Stuey Campbell suffering from a British Champion hangover, however wildcards Charlie Charlesworth and Jordan Reed both showed the worth of local knowledge by getting into the money round. The quarters where held in almost perfect high tide conditions and Johnny Fryer, Oli Adams, Jayce Robinson and Sam Lamiroy latched onto the set waves to post some big scores with a fully committed and gung ho approach.

The semis suffered a bit from the dropping tide but long rides were still available on the infrequent sets with wave selection being the key factor for victors and finalists, Russell, Reubyn, Jayce Robinson and Toby Donachie. The contest was put on hold to wait for the pushing tide late in the afternoon and moved to the legendary long left at Blacklands. With the dark closing in all the finalist were jubilant to have been a part of  an epic final
