Watch: Slater Wins Single Fin Division Of Lux Surf Comp
You may remember the Four Seasons Invitational which gets run every year. Effectively an advertisement for the luxury Maldives resort, the organisers invite a bunch of surfers, make them surf on boards with one, two, and three fins, and I'm not really sure how points get tallied but I'm assuming someone wins.
Anyway, winning isn't really the point. You're supposed to be wowed by the surfing and maybe consider buying a package at Four Seasons (prices start at $1,500 per person per night - get your fourth night free!)
This year, the organisers got the Momentum gang back together: Slats, Mob, Doz, Rossco, T-Knox etc etc. Would've liked to have seen Shane Herring or Shane Powell get a start but it's not to be.
First div is singlies and Slater takes the nod with some good surfing on limited equipment. For mine, it's a great study in the advantages of multi fin boards. Turns cut short, boards that struggle to go on rail, and despite proclamations to the contrary by purists, a lack of flow.
