Jeff Rowley Takes Out Finalist Placing on the Big Wave World Tour Pico Alto Invitational Peru Event

 

Big Wave Surfer, Jeff Rowley was awarded a Finalist Placing in the Big Wave World Tour Billabong Pico Alto Contest in Peru on 14 August 2012.

 

Rowley, who earlier this year was invited as an Alternate to compete in the Big Wave World Tour (BWWT), was officially confirmed as a competitor in the contest only a few hours before the event was due to run.

 

Jeff placed first in his heat in rounds one and two of the event – and in the first heat scored a near perfect 29 out of 30 points - the highest heat score of the entire event.

 

On competing in the Big Wave World Tour Pico Alto Contest, Rowley exudes “It was one of my dreams to compete on the Big Wave World Tour, so competing in the first stage of the tour for the year was amazing”.

 

“I was in the water for three hours, I was exhausted. I had no time for food or drink and had never copped so many giant waves on the head – I had about 50 waves about 30-40 foot in size break on my head, it was crazy”.

 

On his first wave in the final round, Rowley took a massive free fall and had one of the worst wipeouts of the event.

 

But Rowley came back soon after to catch one of the biggest waves of the event.

 

"I was exhausted, but it was the final and I was going for broke - unfortunately I wiped out on the big one, but I made it on the second one, so Im happy about that".

 

The final consisted of eventual winner Carlos Burle (Brazil), Greg Long (United States), Ken Skindog Collins (United States), Jose Gomez (Peru) and Ramon Navarro (Chile) and Jeff Rowley (Australia).
