Buy neurontin from mexico Arugam Bay Sri Lanka:Australiaa??s Julian WilsonA? has won the 6 star rated Association of Surfing Professionals SriLankan Airlines ProA? in flawless 4 to 6 feet surf on an epic final day.

Wilson came into this event courtesy of a wild-card from the sponsor and throughout the event he dominated,A? continually posting the daya??s highest scoring rides and took a deserved win over 19 year-oldA? USA surfer Nat Young.

Wilson and Young were unquestionably the worthy finalists here as both verified their status as two of the most exciting emergingA? ASP surfers.

Wilson controlled the final from start to finish and capitalised early by taking wave priority when Young took off on a poor opening wave.

By mid-final Wilson had a solid lead and Young faulted slightly going for some gigantic floating re entry moves that never quite came off while WilsonA? continued to build on his lead scoring a 7.4 ride late in the final which left Young chasing an outstanding 9 point ride to bridge the gap.

While everyone knew Young was capable of such a score with only five minutes remaining finding the wave that could deliver the score became Younga??s task which he could not complete.

a??I cana??t believe what an outstanding event this has been for me and all the surfers who have travelled herea?? said 22 year-oldA? Wilson after his win.

a??The waves have been outstanding everyday and in many ways they are similar to the point waves around Noosa where I live a?? but probably way more consistent.a??

a??Ia??m back and over my injuries and seriously looking hard at the qualifying series a?? this result is ideal for me and Ia??ll head to California for the US Open full of confidence.a??

It was both Wilson and Younga??s best ever performance at ASP level and both look ready to seriously challenge the highest ranks of surfing.

a??Ia??ve had an amazing week here and Ia??m really greatful to have made the finala?? said Young.

a??I knew the only way to beat Julian would be to score two excellent waves in that final a?? hea??s been the stand-out all week a?? I went for the win but came unstuck on a few critical moves but Ia??m really pleased with this result.a??

Both semi finals were incredibly close affairs today with Wilson defeating Drew Courtney by catching an 8.5 ride in the last minutes while Nat Young posted an outstanding 9.33 near the end of his semi final to edge out Australiaa??s Jayke Sharpe.

Arugam Bay saved ita??s best to the last day here and delivered amazing conditions with clean long lined waves reeling across this ideal point break set-up and delivered both chargeable sections and barrels and the surfers simply revelled in the perfection.

The event was outstanding overall and all in attendance agreed another magnificent venue had been added to theA? ASP surfing tour and all look forward to next year.
