Freestone Wins SATA Azores Pro

Freestone Wins SATA Azores Pro

by DHD Surf

Jack Freestone (AUS), 23, has won the SATA Azores Pro over fellow Australian Dion Atkinson (AUS), 29, in an exciting final disputed in clean, four-to-five foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.

In the final, Atkinson got active first and belted an excellent 8.67 on a beautiful left with a couple of radical turns. Freestone wasted no time in answering but limited by his choice of wave, could only belt a 7.17 and spent most of the first half of the heat chasing another high score. With 15 minutes on the clock, Freestone found a gem of his own and performed two critical turns for an excellent 8.33 and the heat lead.
