Otago surfer Ben Bennett created the biggest upset on the final day surfing his way to a highly credible runner up placing. Bennett was the only surfer to challenge Dive for the lead after posting a 7.0 point ride and then another 7.50 point ride mid way through the final.

Otago picked up their second title of the event when Leroy Rust won the under 18 longnboard division. Rust showed some quality turns on his nine foot board as well as a bit of slick footwork in the tricky conditions that were bumping them all over the show. Rust scored 13.27 in the final to beat Sam Guthrie from Bay of Plenty who finished second with an 11.13 heat total.
