Billabong's Reubyn Ash Takes ASP Europe Specialty 6.0 Cash for Tricks Anglet Event Title in France
L’OCEAN, Anglet/France (Tuesday, August 10, 2010) – Billabong's Reubyn Ash (Newquay, GBR), 22, has won the ASP Europe Specialty 6.0 Cash for Tricks event in Anglet, France, today, the British athlete unleashing his well known progressive surfing to dominate an angry 40-man field that once again pushed their limits in the clean two-foot surf on offer.
Ash, who finished ahead of young gun Edourard Delpero (Biarritz, FRA) and renowned free surfer Christophe Allary (Reunion Island, FRA), delivered a flawless performance of airs, aley-oops and fins-out rapid-fire turns to secure event No. 2 of the 6.0 Cash for Tricks Series.
“This is real cool and they have a great set-up here today,” Ash said. “The concept just allows one good trick to make a difference during a heat and gives place to creativity. Any big trick means cash and you don’t even have to win the event. It just allows us to push our surf as high as possible.”
