This year’s Yallingup Malibu Classic was run in tiny conditions last weekend, but the wave size didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the competitors.

Nearly 90 surfers competed in divisions ranging from juniors to over 65s.

The open men was won by world renowned big wave surfer Jarrad Foster.

A previous two time winner Jarrad returned to longboarding after winning the world big wave award with his tow in partner Mick Corbett.

The open women’s division was won by two times Australian champion Georgia Young of Cottesloe and runner-up was local nurse Rachel Dawe.

Division winners: Open Men – Jarrrad Foster; Open Women – Georgia Young; Junior Girls – Savannah Childs; Junior Boys – Jacob McIver.
