Encanto Pro Day 3 Trials Finals

4th November 2011 Kelly

Tom Rigby (Gold Coast/AUS) has won the Encanto Pro Puerto Rico Trials in punchy 4-6 foot waves at Middles Beach.

"I am so stoked to win the trials! I haven't won an event for a long time. "Rigby added, "I am so amped for the rest of the event, I love the wave, so many ramps."

Clinching the Final against Roberto Bruno (BRA) in second, Jorge Colomer in third and Mitch Rawlins (AUS) in fourth, secured Rigby a place in the GSS event and earned him a first ever $3000 paycheck as well as a valuable 1200 points towards his 2012 GSS campaign.

"Hopefully I can qualify for next year. It's really close right now on the GQS, but if I have a good result in the main event, I might be able to qualify through the top 16 on the GSS", explained Rigby.
In Round 1 of the GSS event, Rigby will face his mentor, sponsor and nine-time World Champion, Mike Stewart (HAW), number four seed in the event, Ryan Hardy (Margaret River / AUS) and local wildcard Babby Quinones (PUR).
