American surfers dominated Australian Longboard Surfing Open

18-29 March marked the days of the WSL Longboard Qualifying Series (LQS) Kingscliff, which took place in New South Wales. At the end of the tournament, the spotlight lied on the two champions of men’s and women’s category, Taylor Jensen and Karina Rozunko.

The Australian, Harley Ingleby was the one to start the men’s final. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t show such a good performance. Unexpectedly, Ingleby did the opposite, disappointing his fans as he scored just 5.5 on the first wave. On the other hand, his rival Jensen Taylor took the lead with 3 amazing waves. Numbers proved his almost certain victory, as he managed to score 5.63 , 7.67 and 5.77. At that point of the final, Ingleby needed 7.95 points in order to win, but he only scored 5. His mistake granted him the 2nd place. According to Jensen, the crucial part of the competition was choosing the right wave to surf.

In women’s final, Karina Rozunko was dominant versus Victoria Vergara. The American had no trouble in entertaining the crowd by not being afraid to catch the small waves and score big. After the final Rozunko declared: “Victoria (Vergara) is a good friend and we knew one of us was going to win and one of us was going to lose, but it was still good fun to surf with her.”

Part of the Longboard Surfing Festival of the Asia-Pacific, the tournament marked just the beginning of a on-growing show, which is gathering more and more fans each day.
