Busting down the door for our 2nd Under 9’ & Single! In this division at the 9‘ Festival surfers were able to ride anything under 9’ with a single fin. Unsuprisingly the majority of the contestants opted for 70’s style shortboards.
Thrown together in two piles of ten for a half hour each, it was more of an expression session than a contest but waves were judged and finalists were made. In the last 30 minutes of the 5th Annual Deus 9’ & Single Festival, 8 single fin shortboarders traded off perfect waves. Each surfer rode a wave on one set alone… 8 waves for 8 surfers in one set! We couldn’t have asked for more.
