Ben Skinner wins the Open Final at Watergate

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 1 October, 2012 : - - The postponed Open Final from last weekends Gwithian event was held this weekend at Watergate Bay prior to the ETL series #1. In choppy 4ft onshore conditions Ben Skinner opened up the heat by scoring the highest wave score of the heat just as the starting horn had barely sounded. While high scores came from Adam Griffiths (2nd ) and Nick Dowrick(  3rd), it was not enough to overtake Ben Skinner who won the heat and thereby took the 2012 championship, followed by Adam Griffiths taking 2nd place in the series.
Following that event, the ETL ran off in one day with the following provisional results

1st   Ben Skinner
2nd Eduard Delpero
Joint 3rd  Adam Griffiths and Zak Lawton
