That's it, it's done - all over for another year! Big congratulations to Adriano De Souza and Carissa Moore for taking out the Mens and Ladies titles respectively at the Australian Open of Surfing yesterday! The weather might not have behaved but the waves turned up and the best conditions of the week were on offer for the finals. If you missed the action live you can get the 2 minute highlight reel here. Day and night Manly's been pulsing all week with action and events. Well done to the Hurley crew for putting on a good show. The big question is, are we back on in 2015?
As Manly returned to normality this morning the sun broke through the clouds and there was 10 minutes of the most beautiful golden light. There's even a little bit of surf pushing through too; hope you managed to catch some.
Back on the beach at dawn tomorrow. :: Murray
