King Wins Box Trials

The Box Pro Trials were taken out by Damian King today. Failure to requalify for the 2012 IBA World Tour last year meant he had to compete in the Trials to make it into the main event. The two time World Champion made his intentions clear for the year defeating fellow finalists Sacha Specker (second), Lewy Finnegan (third) and Jacob Romero (fourth) in three to four foot waves at Gas Bay.

King landed a heavy backflip in the opening minutes of the Final with the judges awarding him a 9.08. He then snuffed his opponents hopes of winning with another solid backflip. Kingy joins Unite Team riders Ryan Hardy,  Michael Novy and wildcard Nick Ormerod in the main event.

With offshore winds for most of the day and clean Southwest swell predicted to show in the six foot range at The Box, it’s highly likely we’ll see the Box Pro get underway tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled to our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter from 7.00am WST for live updates from the contest.
