Irish Surfer Takes Mr Price Pro Title in South Africa

#SURFING - Irish surfer Glenn Hall took the top prize at the ASP Prime Mr Price Pro event in South Africa recently.

As AllAfrica.com reports, surfing pro Hall - who was born in Australia - beat Nathaniel Curran from the USA in the final at Willards Beach in Ballito, on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal provice on the Indian Ocean, to clinch the title.

"It's the biggest win of my career by far," he said. "I kind of felt like if you got the wave out there you could get the score and I was just praying for a wave at the end."

The victory continues a prosperous year for the former ASP Australasian Pro Junior champion, with wins in China and Trestles in California seeing him rise to 16th in the world rankings.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
