Slade Prestwich Wins The 2013 VQS Global Champs!

18-year old South African surfer Slade Prestwich has won the 2013 VQS Global Champs on his Proton Step-Up! The powerful regular foot from Durban used big turns and precision barrel riding to get past runner up Deivid Silva from Brazil.

“I’m so stoked to have won this,” he said. “Thanks to all my friends back home, my sponsors, Volcom for putting on the event, and all the other guys in the comp—we’ve had the best time ever hanging out together at Smuggler’s Cove!” – Slade
