JOSH Kerr has won the O'Neill Cold Water Classic Canada 2010 ahead of Eric Geiselman in clean 4ft conditions on another epic sunny day in Tofino.
"It was a bit of a slow final," said Josh after his and Eric's fourth heat of the day. "You're blood is pumping a lot harder to keep you warm. It takes it out of you," he said. "But we are surfing in Canada - it's a beautiful place. You're in the mountains but by the beach. It's a trip. I am stoked!"
"It was great surfing against Eric," said Josh. "He's one of the best new up and coming surfers around. I've respected that guy for years."
And Eric showed exactly why earlier in a tense semi final heat. Under pressure in the semis Eric pulled out the wave of the event with a spectacular aerial, scoring a 9.10 and going into the final ahead of an on-form Shaun Cansdell.
