Bonga Perkins Wins the Sunset Beach Pro

The Sunset Beach Pro is one of the most prestigious SUP events of the year. It is presented by Malibu and Starboard and in association with Maui Jim eyewear and gathers the most talented SUP surfers in the world. This year’s edition was awesome. The final was absolutely amazing, as the final battle was given between Bonga Perkins and Kai Lenny, two of the most complete watermen ever.

In a dramatic ending, Bonga Perkins pushed hard in the last minute of the heat and got ahead of Kai Lenny to claim victory.

Kai Lenny displayed amazing surfing skills in the final, proving that he is a two times Sunset Beach Pro Champion and two times World Champion, but it was not enough to catch up with Bonga Perkins and the impossible turns he performed in the last seconds of the final. In the end, Bonga Perkins won by just 0.6.

Peyo Lizarazu, Ikaika Kalama, Duane DeSoto and Sean Poynte are some of the other SUP surfers that had an amazing performance at the Sunset Beach Pro.

The next stop of the Stand up World Tour is the La Torche Pro in NW France, where we are sure that we will see some more amazing action.
