Noa Deane has just won the first ever Stab High contest in the BSR wavepool, Waco, Texas.
Noa did a frontside big spin for a score in the mid-70’s and from Stab's account; by the end of the first eight waves, he was the man to beat.
“It’s been pretty crazy,” said Noa. “It’s like no pressure and heaps of pressure at the same time. Yesterday was one of the most fun days of surfing I’ve ever had. Then today’s been rad. It’s so fun to watch. I’d almost rather just drink tins and watch them surf."
To help with the wave pool buoyancy & for doing airs; Noa was riding a slightly beefier version of his soon-to-be released Noa model.
5'10 x 19 3/8 x 2 1/2 (30L) Rounded Square
5'11 x 19 5/16 x 2 1/2 (30.3L) Rounded Square
in comparison his usual dimensions in the same model are 6'0 x 19 1/8 x 2 7/16 (29.5L) and rides a mixture of swallow, rounded square and diamond tails.
