Starboard riders win Rottnest Island Classic 8th-10th May

Congratulations to Shakira Westdorp and Justin Holland for winning the inaugural Rottnest Island Classic at the weekend.

The event gave competitors a little adventure, being hosted on the Rottnest Island surrounded by reef and plenty of lagoons, some 12 miles off the coast of Perth.

With over 70 competitors attending the event, everyone was geared up for the chance to compete in the Australian Titles later in the year.

Conditions prevailed with consistent 3-foot glassy waves, setting up for a high performance show of SUP Surfing.

Shakira worked hard on her backhand to take out the Women’s division with a definitive win.

In the men’s, Justin Holland performed consistently throughout the entire competition to seal the win in a tough final heat.

The event was applauded for its professionalism and organization thanks to Surfing West Australia for hosting the event.
