Title: HEDGEY..SO CLOSE AT 6* NEWCASTLE SURFEST!
Nathan "Hog" Hedge nearly did it again with a 2nd to Matt banting at the 6 star Newcastle surfest. His backhand was deadly in the Merewether rights and he surfed the almost perfect event taking some big scalps along the way !
The Hog is definately back now with a number 3 ranking in the WQS circuit, he will be closely watched this year to see him attempt to re-qualify for the WCT.
We are currently building Hoggy some more boards for the Margaret River WCT event for which he has a start in the trials. You can see him testing our HPX-3 step up model in the 2014 ASL board test, a design that will be right at home at Margarets.
Title: NATHAN "HOG" HEDGE WINS AT BELLS!
At the Piping Hot Pro held down at Bells Beach last week Hedgey did the team proud with a win in the first WQS event for the year! He consistently scored 9's in all his heats and dominated the event as a result.
During the event Hedgey texted me to praise the boards , he said he alternated between his Stu 5'9" HPX-3 and the 5'9" Xanadu Xank .
This just highlights the importance of having a good quiver of boards that you can comfortably transition from one model to the next and not
have to re-adjust your surfing!
Well done matey and keep it going for the rest of the year.
Have a look at Zeb Critchlow in the video section on his 5'10"x17 3/8"x2 1/4" Stuart tow board at "Shippies" down in Tassie!
Solid stuff with a few nasty wipeouts , it beats going to work and falling of a ladder though..enjoy.
