Peter Devries wins Rip Curl Pro Tofino

May 152017

With this, his 7th win, Peter Devries becomes to most decorated Surfer in Rip Curl Pro Tofino History.

“Wow! Today was incredibly satisfying after coming so close in back to back finals the last few years. ”

With a 16.24 that included 2, 8 point+ scores, Peter Devries took back his Rip Curl Pro Tofino title for the first time in 2 years, having won the 6 years previous.  Nursing an injury, the local favourite took out last years Champ, Kevin Schultz with less than 1 point in the semi finals.

 

Meanwhile, Monster's other roster surfer, Noah Cohen, was killing it in practice, and had a late push in his heat, but flat waves and a slow start kept him from transitioning to the semis.
