Roy Powers

    Roy Powers ordered a few new boards through good mate Dean Morrison for the Australian leg. They felt really good so he rode them at the Snapper and The Bells World Tour Events. It looks like the Protag and Silent Savage models have been going especially well for him. He dropped in again on his travels before the Snapper event to pick up a new quiver. Roy rode a 6’1 Protag with a swallow tail and a 5’11 Protag model with hip squash throughout the Snapper WCT event and following free surfs. Roy had a good end to last year on Joistik Surfboards as he was able to jump from 33rd to 12th on the ASP WQS, thus ensuring himself a start on the ASP World Tour in 2008. In the video below Roy Powers takes on good mate Andy Irons in Round 2 at the Quicksilver Pro on his magic Nick Blair board.


    Roy Powers, Jordy Smith and the O’Neill team also visited the Wave Garden in the Basque country. The Spanish engineering team have created a wave does not deteriorate in size or shape as it travels along the lagoon, creating a pointbreak-like ride. This lagoon is just a test-facility and is not open to the public, but it looks like the first commercially public one could be open next year. Roy Powers rides his same magic Protag at the Wavegarden that he rode at the Snapper and Bells events.
