THE waves, surfers and beach crowd turned up to watch some inspired surfing on finals day of the 14th annual Reef2Beach Longboard Classic at Agnes Water yesterday.

After two days of not much in the way of swell, a solid pulse arrived overnight for a day of excellent surf and red-hot action.

Surfers and spectators from all over turned up at Agnes Water for what were the best waves on the coast yesterday, as the Quiksilver Pro went ahead in dribblers on the Goldie.

Event organiser and Tide N Turn Boardriders club president Paul "Whitey" White said the Classic keeps getter bigger and better each year.

"We've got some great surfers who've come this year - the boys from Classic Malibu have been terrific," he said.

"All the divisions were just about full and the number of people in town show just how popular this event is."

Whitey said without major sponsors Agnes Water Pre-Mix concrete, DC Cruisers and Reef2Beach surf shop; plus a whole host of local minor sponsors, the contest would not go ahead.

"The sponsors have supported us again and the boys from Tide n Turn have done a great job," he said.
