Ballito’s flawless surf last week, including 4-metre barrels, helped it make history at the 2011 Mr Price Pro Ballito Champion competition.
Surfers from around the world gathered on Surfers Beach on the Kwa-Zulu Natal North Coast for what turned out to be an epic week of surf.
Unfortunately South African defending champion Jordy Smith from Durban lost out to ASP World No. 27 Patrick Gudauskas from the USA. Jordy retained his ASP World No. 5 ranking.
The intense week of surf ended on the final day with a Legends Exhibition from surfing greats like Shaun Tomson, Jonathan Paarman and Gavin Rudolph.
