South Africans might not be clear who in the ANC is winning the battle, but there is little doubt that it is the people of the country who are losing, writes Howard Feldman.
In one of the most dramatic and exciting finals, Gabriel Medina (BRA) came from behind to wrestle the Corona JBay Open title from an on-form Italo Ferreira (BRA) - becoming the first goofy-footer to win the competition since Marc Occhilupo’s audacious victory in 1984. Needing a 7.04 score in solid, blustery conditions at Supertubes, Medina picked up a set wave, and went about executing some high risk moves underneath and over the falling lip, before setting up for a tube ride on the inside. He emerged from a long double-section tuberide – the best backhand tube of the entire event. In the women’s final, it was a tight battle between Lakey Peterson (USA) and Carissa Moore (HAW). They both fought hard in the excellent offshore conditions, but Moore banked an 8.5 score for one very impressive ride, and took the win from Peterson. Photo:LOUIS LÖTTER
