Possibly best day for vibes, sun and surfing for decades at Boardmasters yesterday.

The Animal ProBoardmasters Open WSL surfing events kicked off in a building swell and glassy conditions to run a mammoth day of competition. The QS1,000 Animal Mens and Womens Pro completed 52 heats to decide the events’ finalists, with high-performance surfing and large crowds enjoying a picture-perfect summer day at Fistral.

The Animal Womens Pro Final will feature the 2019 winner Yolanda Hopkins up against Ariane Ochoa, Janire Gonzalez Etxabarri and Laura Coviella. The Animal Mens Pro will have a new winner as none of the four Finalist have previously won at Fistral, the showdown between Bitor Garitaonandia, Thomas Ledee, Marco Mignot and Jobe Harriss promises fireworks!

Longboarders will kick off their BFGoodrich Longboard Pro campaigns super early Friday morning, and we could wrap both competitions by the end of the day tomorrow!
