FAST-RISING paddling star Grant van der Walt opened his 2013 Illovo Suncoast Wall and Back Surfski Series victory account when he surged to a narrow win over surfski powerhouse Matt Bouman in race three of the six-leg series — Suncoast Durban Surfski Challenge — yesterday.

“Even though one or two guys were away, all the other usual suspects were there and, with the conditions being a whole lot smaller and more manageable than they have been in the previous two weeks, there wasn’t any carnage at the start and it was a really good, honest paddle for all of us,” said Van der Walt. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
