YORKES CLASSIC 2015
Yorkes Classic 2015
Saturday the 3rd of October delivered pumping 4-6 ft surf at Chinaman’s on the Yorke Peninsula for the Coopers Yorkes Classic surf event. The comp was taken out by Max Longhurst followed closely by Clayton Howse with Francis Harsing 3rd and Luke Horlin Smith taking 4th.
There were many stand out performances most notably Jye Demmerich’s 10 point barrel ride, Horlo’s huge backhands hacks, Shorty’s barrels, Todd Goudie’s tube riding and Ellie Francis giving the boys a run for their money with some massive backhand turns.
The over 45 Division was taken out by the legendary Brian “Squizy” Taylor who showed his class and local knowledge by taking down some big names in the open division as well.
Peter Cox was awarded the "Spirit of Yorkes Award” in memory of Christine Cox for all the effort he has put into the Yorkes Classic and his tireless support of Surfing SA and it's crew both here at home and away at the Australian Surfing Festival. Well deserved Coxy!!
