Happy 29th of February! It's time to LEAP into the 2020 contest season for Morgan, with his first event of the year being Surfest (back in Newcastle) starting on Monday the 2nd of March. Then to Manly for the Sydney Surf Pro on the 9th and then the big one on the Gold Coast, his debut event on the WCT the Corona Open, event window March 26 to April 5th.
Here he is picking up five of his 'step up' Live Wire models. 5'11 to 6'2. The bottom shot is with yet unnamed experimental model (that he's loving).
What an epic weekend of competition at this years ABB (Australian Boardriders Battle) in Newcastle. Another final decided in the dying seconds, this year taken out by the Northshore Club.
Morgan's Merewether club, defending champions just missed out on the semis while Adam Robertson's Torquay narrowly missed the finals.
Anyone who watched would've seen and heard the buzz around the Smiley Face model ridden by both guys. Some of the commentary was truly glowing. Robbo was to be awarded Male surfer of the event but unfortunately couldn't stay for the ceremony with a flight to catch. His fluro yellow 6'2 'One of Will's' caught everyones attention. Between heats he was flat out taking orders from his team mates. So boards off to Vicco for Todd Rosewall, Harry Mann, Cahill Bell-Warren and Jack Perry.
