East London based surfer and former WCT campaigner Greg Emslie has won the O’Neill Cold Water Classic in Cape Town. Greg defeated Dion Atkinson from Australia in the final.
As South Africa’s most experienced professional surfer, Greg showed all his skills and experience in defeating Billabong Pro winner and the number one ranked surfer in the World, Jordy Smith in a previous heat.
Jordy said after the heat that he would have liked to have won three out of three in South Africa but it was cool just to be in Cape Town and to enjoy the vibe.
Greg started off slowly in the final and eventually managed to get two high scoring waves to win the event.
