The local Coolum boy Julian Wilson Wins, the ASP Prime Mr Price Pro Ballito, beating Jordy Smith, from Cape Town, in a Final to remember at Willard’s Beach on Saturday July 6, 2013.
The ASP Prime Series ended up with the most anticipated match-up of this year’s competition - event standouts, Jordy and Julian, lived up to the crows expectations with inspired performances.
Julian said after the event “I’m really happy to get the win! It’s my third time in Durban and I’ve had a good result each time. I really enjoy it here, it’s a great place with friendly people”.
Julian said of this win he “needed to put everything on the line”, completing an extremely critical Alley Oop maneuver to score the first perfect 10 of this year’s Mr Price Pro Ballito competition and followed that up with a 8.93 slob grab reverse aerial maneuver.
Julian cemented his win with that and was chaired up the beach as the deserved 2013 Mr Price Pro Ballito Champion.

“It was an honour to surf in the final against Julian, I’m just sorry I didn’t win it,” Smith Said. “Julian stuck that air and it was amazing. I went on a trip to Reunion with him and he tried it a million times and didn’t make it and then he goes into the final and sticks it first time!”
The Australian contingent proved the most dominant on the final day of competition, with Stu Kennedy and Mitch Crews reaching the semi finals and placing equal third respectively.
