    Womad was a huge event in New Plymouth this year. I managed to get there on Sunday and saw some awesome acts. On Friday & Saturday I was instead in Raglan for the Rip Curl Pro surfing contest which had some really fun waves and what seemed like an endless supply of delicious Nature Valley muesli bars for all to enjoy! Footage of people in the comp is stuff not featured in the highlights packages, but more so of people in my heat and Eli MacDonalds heat - a Waitara grom who came up with me. We scored some sick waves somewhere in between Raglan and Taranaki also. This is a bit of a wacky edit, the music is from what I filmed at Womad... all live performances, stringed together with Womad footage mixed with surfing. Quite an interesting watch anyway :) NOTE: All the Surfing is shot in HD, but the Womad I was using a SD camera... hence the slightly grainy music stuff

                2011 Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Champion Taylor Jensen (USA) today (Monday 6th February) showed why he is the best in the business with a near perfect performance in the final of the ASP Open Men's Division of the Hyundai Tour event at Sandy Bay, Whangarei, New Zealand. MUSIC: 'Hesitate No' - www.dDub.co.nz www.hyundai.co.nz Jensen's opening ride was a near flawless 9.0 out of 10 and the smooth natural footer linked a long 'hang ten' nose ride with a number of fin-waft re-entries to take the lead in the heat held in 1.0m -- 1.5m waves. Jensen's second top scoring ride saw him complete a similar display of fins free re-entries and nose rides to combine for a final score of 17.35 out of a possible 20 points. This was Jensen's second victory at Sandy Bay and he was obviously stoked on his win. Hot on Jensen's heels was young Australian star Mitch Surman (Australia) who locked in a 16.50 point heat score, needing only an 8.86 score to move into the lead. The sole Kiwi in the Open Men's final was Thomas Kibblewhite (Orewa) who despite surfing his best heat in the event, couldn't match the scores of Surman and Jensen. Kibblewhite put on a powerful display and solidified his placing at the top of the 2012 domestic Hyundai Tour ratings after three of five events. Local favourite Wini Paul (Sandy Bay) stormed to her first victory of the 2012 Hyundai Tour beating young Australian Sam Suendermann (Australia) in the dying minutes of final. Paul, who was trailing Suendermann for most of the heat, scored a 7.0 ride securing the win. The crowd were ecstatic for Paul who dedicated the win to all of the locals that supported her during the event. "I am so stoked to win at home. Thanks to all the local crew from the North Coast Boardriders, and especially my whanau for supporting me" she said. Paul finished the heat with an 11.77 combined heat score ahead of Suendermann on 10.87. Molly Powell (Australia) managed to pick off a number of low scoring rides with her best a 4.83, backed up with a 4.0. Powell finished in third place ahead of Ann Snyder (Tauranga) in fourth with a total heat score of 4.40. ASP Open Men's LQS Final Results: 1st Taylor Jensen (USA) 17.35, 2nd Mitch Surman (Australia) 16.50, 3rd Thomas Kibblewhite 14.20, 4th Jared Neal (Australia) 11.85 Open Women's Final Results: 1st Wini Paul (Sandy Bay) 11.77, 2nd Sam Suendermann (Australia) 10.87, 3rd Molly Powell (Australia) 8.83, 4th Ann Snyder (Tauranga) 4.40 SUP Final Results: 1st Daniel Kereopa (Raglan) 15.06, 2nd Shayne Baxter (Christchurch) 11.36, 3rd Armie Armstrong (Raglan) 7.17, 4th Karlos Aarsen (Whangamata) 7.03 The 2012 Hyundai Tour travels to Raglan, Piha, Sandy Bay and Mount Maunganui before the season concludes at Port Waikato in early March.

MUSIC: Counting Sparrows - Civilian Sol - soundcloud.com/pukeko www.Hyundai.co.nz Thomas Kibblewhite (Rodney) was one of four surfers to defend their title at the event, Kibblewhite taking back-to-back wins in the Men's Longboard Division. Kibblewhite outclassed his opponents with the third highest heat score of the entire day -- 16.73 points out of 20. A near perfect 9.07 point ride after he already held a strong lead, put the result beyond doubt and left all his competitions requiring a combination of waves to catch up. It was the veteran Michael Fitzharris (Gis) who feared the best to place second in a division he has previously won six times. 2009 champion Daniel Procter (Gis) placed third in the final with Ben Poulter in fourth. Anna Jolly (Piha) secured one of four titles for the local Piha surfers in the Women's Longboard Division scoring 12.17 points. Alexis Poulter (Rag) fought hard to catch up but finished in second place ahead of Mischa Davis (Piha) in third and Belinda Goodwin (Rag) in fourth. Shayne Baxter (Chch) took the sole South Island title holding off Daniel Kereopa (Rag) to win the Stand Up Paddleboard Division. Baxter won the first ever national title in the division when it was contested at Piha in 2009. Kereopa was the defending champion. Kereopa had a final dig at the title today but needing a 6.88 point ride on his last wave, came to the shore to the sound of a 6.50 point ride being called out and finishing in second place. Whangamata surfers Lynden Kennings and Karl Aarsen rounded out the final in third and fourth place respectively.

He is one of but a few in the world that managed to claim a victory over 11 times world champion Kelly Slater in 2011. He won his first national title in 2010 at Gisborne in a similar fashion after getting a massive lead on his opponents and never relenting. "It is good to start the year winning a national title, I am going overseas soon so it is good for my confidence and everything like that but yeah, at the moment, a national title, I can't believe it at the moment" said Stairmand. Thandi Durham -- Tipene (Taranaki) claimed her first Open Women's Division title in style today posting a 5.40 on her last wave to jump from third to first in the dying seconds of the final.

"I have been living at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast and seeing the likes of Mick Fanning, Tyler Wright, all the best surfers, surfing everyday, it is pretty hard not to improve over there" she said obviously happy to get her last wave and show how much she has improved. Durham -- Tipene's husband Bachelor won the Peter Byers award for the most outstanding performance at the event. He was awarded the prize for exceptional surfing throughout the whole week. "I am stoked for Bach my husband as well. Winning the Peter Byers 'Most Outstanding Performance' award is pretty special. He was bummed he didn't pick up a title but I know he will be gunning for it next year." she added. Placing second in the final was Mischa Davis (Piha) who led for over 20 minutes but came up short on the final hooter. Davis scored 8.60 to Durham -- Tipene's 9.43. The two oldest of the finalists fended off the challenge of the younger girls with Ella Williams (WGM) finishing in third and Jayda Martin -- Fitzharris (Gis) finishing fourth. Tane Wallis won the Under 18 Boys Division in the challenging low tide conditions. After Elliot Paerata -- Reid (Piha) opened the final with a 7.0 point ride, Wallis came back into contention with rides of 7.83 and 6.03 to control the final. Wallis then went to work protecting his lead first watching over Paerata -- Reid then Ben Poulter (Rag) after he came back in to contention late in the final.
