In one of the most dramatic and exciting Finals yet for the Stand Up World Tour, Bonga Perkins digs deep in the last minute of the heat to edge ahead of Kai Lenny (Naish) by the smallest of margins and take victory here at stop 1, the Sunset Beach Pro presented by Malibu and Starboard and in association with Maui Jim eyewear. Bonga was one of the on form surfers throughout the event, showcasing why he has multiple World Titles to his name in Ocean Sports and is one of the most respected waterman in the world. After a 5th in 2010 and 2011, Bonga started the Finals with a strong wave that culminated in one of the few barrels of the day, and then ended it with a couple of impossible turns that clinched the win for him, despite having lost his paddle for much of the heat. A worthy champion to say the least.
