Round of applause for South Africa’s new world champion Jared Houston who was crowned the 2015 Association of Professional Bodyboarders (APB) World Tour champion yesterday. Jared was leading the rankings and for him to win the title Amaury Lavernhe needed to be eliminated by Jacob Romero in their Round 7 matchup and Pierre-Louis Costes to NOT win the Encanto Pro Cultura 2015 event. Happily everything worked out and he is now a world champ.
“It’s pretty much the longest day of my life. Waiting for those different scenarios. Just huge congrats to Pierre. He would be an incredibly deserved world champion. Super happy it’s me,” expressed an emotional Jared Houston [Surfer Today]
Proudly South African.
