Congratulations to 29-year old David Pham from Cupertino, California!
David, who’s been surfing for twelve years, won the incredible giveaway with this caption: “Kelly vs. Andy is one of the greatest rivalries in the history of sports. What Ali/Frasier, Magic/Bird, and Federer/Nadal is to the rest of the world, Slater and Irons is to our world. Their competitive rivalry has created progression not only amongst themselves, but to the rest of the tour attempting to reach the ever rising bar. I truly believe surf media attempts to up-play some personal loathing they may have for each other because everyone loves drama. Still, more than likely the truth is Kelly and Andy are relentless competitors that push each others limits. So whether on a competitive format, or free surf format (which is the focus of the new issue) their union can only mean one thing. Progression.”
David’s haul includes a brand new board shaped by Xanadu for Andy Irons, gear from Nixon, Billabong, Da Kine, Von Zipper, and the biggest prize of all, an 11-day paid accommodations trip for two to Kandui Resort in the Mentawais! Congrats David, people really win on transworldsurf.com!
