Windswept Win

Mount Maunganui surfer Matt Lewis-Hewitt, 19, has won the Championship Moves Pro Junior in Victoria, becoming the first New Zealand male to win an Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) event in Australia since Maz Quinn in 1996. Lewis-Hewitt defeated good friend and experienced ASP campaigner Dean Bowen in small windswept 0.5m surf at Jan Juc. Lewis-Hewitt said it was great to finally win one of these events,” Lewis-Hewitt said. “They are tough to win, all the surfers on this circuit are very experienced and talented athletes and coming into my last season, I was wondering if I’d ever really win one. Now I have, I want more … my confidence is up and to win the opening event of the season is ideal. I’ll aim high from now on.”
