The Vans Joel Tudor Duct Tape Longboard Invitational also celebrated its respective winners Justin Quintal and Kelis Kaleoppa after a brilliant Finals day in solid, three-to-five foot swell at Huntington Beach.

Matson, 16, garnered his first-ever Vans US Open title after overcoming Jett Schilling along with Joh Azuchi and Caleb Tancred in a internationally flavoured Final.

Justin Quintal solidified himself at this event with a fifth consecutive victory over Kevin Skvarna, Andy Nieblas and Troy Mothershead.

Kelis Kaleoppa became the youngest women’s winner at just 14 years of age after a beautiful display against her fellow Hawaii contingent Haley Otto, Kirra Seale, and 2017 WSL Longboard champion 2017 WSL Longboard Champion Honolua Blomfield, also from Hawaii.
