Check out this other hilarious little video that Sea Walk put together of himself and his friend Harrison Roach going tandem at Noosa on the 10`0 CJ Nelson Aviso designed by Bob Pearson of Pearson Arrow…
Christian Wach (USA/Cal/San Clemente) was untouchable in the Golden Breed Pro Noserider division at the Global Surf Industries Noosa Festival of Surfing today.
Not even three locals pitted against Wach in the final could contend with the freakish nose riding abilities of Wach who, across his two highest scoring rides, scored 127, equivalent to just over 2 minutes on the nose while second placed Trent Dickie (Noosa) scored a very respectable 84 with Ezra Norris on 79 and Harrison Roach on 70 (both Noosa).
“That was the best heat I have ever surfed in my life” said Wach who has now won this event three years in succession.
“The waves are absolutely faultless and so perfect for Noseriding it’s unbelievable.”
Wach is a Noseriding specialist, probably the world’s best in a discipline that at this stage has no structured ratings.
Wach’s win made it a double for USA surfers in the Pro divisions at this year’s festival following on from Taylor Jensen’s win yesterday.
All finals enjoyed the flawless waves at Noosa’s first point today and there were numerous high scoring win across the array of divisions.
The closing two events to this years festival were the Dupe Women’s Open Amateur which was won by Caloundra surfer Monique Keane (16.05) defeating fellow Sunshine Coaster Sharon Jackson (Alex Head) while the Men’s Classic Malibu Open amateur went to Caloundra’s Justin Healy who posted the days highest tally of 19 points out of a possible 20 to defeat Ben Harworth (UK) on 17.65.
Noosa delivered unbelievable surf again this year and all who participated will be back next year for one of surfing’s classic events.

That was the theme of the day… In-N-Out! The waves were horrible down in San Clemente today so CWach and I made the call to rush it North and we ended up scoring at Rincon! After braving LA in the rain and our first (of two) missions to In-N-Out, we came through Ventura to find the wind howling offshore! After checking little Rincon we headed down to the Queen of the Coast and it was offshore, about 4ft, and only ten or so guys out! Christian and I could not get our suits on fast enough!! We ended up surfing for about three hours until the sun went down and hit the road back down south. That was our day, we scored In-N-Out, got some in-n-outs, then did it all again! Hopefully the winds will be kind to us tomorrow, because there definitely should be some swell for the next few days..
There were some little waves to be had at a few spots up and down the coast but most places were still pretty small… I ran down the trail for a bit this afternoon with Christian an got some waves on the 5`2 BD3. I love that board, it is a wave magnet! Everyone in the water was asking about it because the thing just flies,plus it paddles like a dream! Rusty Long was frothing to try it out and even Damien Hobgood stopped to check it out. I let a few of the boys get some waves on it and they all agree, the BD3 is AMAZING!!
