Newcastle surfer and Sanbah team member Philippa Anderson has taken out the 8th annual Siargao International Women's Surfing Cup presented by Volcom, Skullcandy & Silangan at Cloud 9 in the Philippines. Philippa found a way to best Cloud 9’s top women surfer Nildie Blancada in an extended 40 minute woman-on-woman final and come into the beach the winner and a $3,000 USD payday..
After the final, Philippa was asked how she had felt going into the final after seeing Nildie’s impressive semifinal performance against Rina Kitazawa and having watched Nildie’s progress from the start of the event. She replied, “Nilbie in barreling Cloud 9 is so good, did you see her in the semifinal, she got like 3 or 4 barrels! I knew that if it was barreling in the final it would be hard to beat her.”
Awesome board, it flies, paddles well and holds good yet turns on a dime. Used futures Alpha T1 + stabiliser and Alpha F8 thrusters and felt like it was designed for either so super versatile. Phantom phlex is insane construction very solid yet lively at the same time and light. A++++
ive been wearing this model reef boot for nearly 20 years these are a upgrade in certain aspects but you cant get a better design very difficult for waves to rip off and also plenty of feel i use them even when not on reefs the extra traction is only a bonus dont get me wrong sea urchins can penetrate any bootie but if you want to look after your feet especially in the tropics these are my pick got to have the split toe on any boot your big toe does a lot have an injured big toe and you realise how much you control with it
On the recommendation from the Sandbah boys, bought these fins for my daily driver (Stacey Wave Slave), the smaller back fin is great and keeps the board lively/playful.
Used them in my HPSB (Channel Islands Two Happy) in solid 4ft and gave heaps of drive/confidence.
These are a real go to fin for me, highly recommended.
(Do yourself a favor and buy some grub screws to retain fins, incase like me, you accidently bump your fin under water from behind and lose it, otherwise FCS will gladly sell you a single).
The entire shopping experience was great.
