|OK that was awesome ... just watching McCarthy getting carried up the beach ... Mark just won his first World Tour event ... and is now getting swamped by the media.|
Mark started off with a decent score of 6.25 but for most of the heat he ended up sitting in fourth for a lot of the heat ... the man has the big move in the bag and he pulled out an 8.75 to claim the lead with 5 minutes to go leaving the rest of the competitors each needing more than 7 points to wrestle the lead from him.
Well done bru --- stay tuned for more and go check out the webcast for the prize giving if you're on now.

|Mark's semi-final was pretty mad to say the least! He led for the first 10 mins with a 6 point but that score was never going to be one of his scoring waves at this level - the next 20 minutes of the the heat the lead must have changed a dozen times and Mark ended up in 4th with the clock counting down. He bettered his best wave with a 6.90 but with 3 minutes left he pulled out the back-flip to claim the highest wave score of the heat - an 8.35 ... which he claimed! lol ... I think the guy is fired up --- good luck bru!!!|
Follow the final live on the webcast. Should be at 18:00 (SAST).
