Poulter was the highest placed Kiwi placing sixth overall in the Under 16 Boys Division. Yeah stoked, definitely a better result than I thought I was going to get commented Poulter post heat.

Poulter had two chances to progress through to the final this morning but placed third in his ...

In surfing lineage there are only a few surfers who transcend the sport. Like Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods these athletes are untouched by their peers. Joel Tudor is one of these people.

In 1998 Joel won the World Longboard Championship in the Canary Islands, solidifying his reputation among his peers and sliding his way into surfing's record books.

Undeniable surfing superstar KELLY SLATER has clinched his eighth world title at the Billabong Pro Mundaka. It was a fairytale script for the 34-year-old Floridian who took the 2006 crown by defeating Australian world number four JOEL PARKINSON in the semi's. PARKO'S scalp was all the natural footer needed in the 1m waves after title challenger and world number two TAJ BURROW (Aus) bowed out in the Quarters. Californian tour rookie BOBBY MARTINEZ (USA) put and end to SLATER'S dream script in the final, flying past his countryman to score his second win for 2006. With the silverware secure, SLATER lead the final until the half way mark when MARTINEZ jagged a long lefthander, performed a series of perfectly controlled frontside top turns and scored an 8.83. Backing up with a 7.00, the result was put beyond SLATER'S reach, needing an excellent 8.17 to steal victory. MARTINEZ'S emphatic win lifted him one place on the world rankings to six.
