Coldwater Classic

Congratulations to Ruth Hurst and Tom Hook for winning the 2022 Cold Water Classic 🙂

The Cold Water Classic was held at T-Other’s with blue skies and solid swell throughout the day with great surfing from all the competitors. A big thanks to Cooper Brouard for sponsoring the GSC for 2022 and thanks to all the judges and everyone that helped run the comp. Thanks to all surfers that stayed out the water until the comp was over this is much appreciated 🙂 We had a great turnout for the event and it was great to see some new surfers taking part in the comp.

First in the water was the women’s with Lottie Smith, Ruth Hurst, Florrie Cooper, and Bea Smith. There was great surfing from all the women in challenging conditions with some big clean-up sets to deal with during the 30-minute heat with Ruth Hurst taking the win.

Next in the water for the men’s heat, was Tom Hook, Jeffery Babasa, Martin Baxter, and Joey Abbott with Tom Hook and Joey progressing through to the semi-finals. In Heat two Matt Le Maitre, John Smith, Owen Hunt, and James Le Tissier with Matt Le Maitre and Owen Hunt made it through to the semi-finals. The third heat of the mens was Matt Gill, Ed Cooper, Tim Le Compte, and Sam Falla with Sam Falla and Tim Le Compte progressing through to the semi-finals.

In the first semi-finals, Tom Hook took the lead and moved on to the finals with some impressive surfing on the long right-handers on offer, linking solid turns and powering through the slower sections of the waves. In the second semi-finals, Matt Le Maitre put on a great display linking big turns with speed power and flow on the long rights to take the lead and progress through the finals. 

The man-on-man final showdown between Tom Hook and Matt Le Maitre was a very closely fought match, with both surfers putting on an excellent display of surfing with Tom Hook taking the victory.
