Return of the Wavepool – Red Bull Unleashed at Surf Snowdonia

The Wavepool is back! Over the weekend some of the World’s best free surfers and ex tour campaigners descended on Surf Snowdonia in Wales for the Red Bull Unleashed competition. With both Lefts and Rights on hand the guys tore it to pieces in front of a large crowd. The waves, while not very large, certainly proved rippable and it was Hawaiian big wave surfer and new school ripper, Albee Layer who ended up with the win. The format was different to the norm, man on man heats with wave versus wave scores with best of 5. The first surfer to win 3 waves would win. It certainly opens the door for some interesting future developments. Wonder if we will see one in SA soon?
