It’s Official: Tony Silvagni wins the 2014 Newkirk “All Waterman Award”
Based on heat progression and point assessment throughout both the SUP Surf and Longboard competition, Silvagni edged out the Grant brothers from Florida by 400 points. It was a show of talent from a local homeboy in the water. Silvagni takes the crown away from Jarrod Covington, who first won in 2013!
Our 2014 WBLA Longboard Classic and SUP Pro-AM is in the history books!
Many thanks to all of the contestants who came from around the world to support our great event and compete for the prizes and bragging rights! We will announce the coveted “All Waterman” award in a press release next week and posts pics and vids here as well!
Here are our winners and their results! (paste into your address link/ scrolls thru each division every 25 seconds)
