AND the winner of the Atlantic Hurricane Leslie Shootout is.... Adam Cornick from Nova Scotia.
He was both the public and the judges' first choice, a unanimous decision.
When we first contacted Adam his response was, and I quote: "WHOOOOOAAAAA!"
After settling down we asked him a few questions about the comp, winning, and how surf photographers fare in Nova Scotia. The prize for coming first is a trip around the Maldives, including flights, aboard the Haira, a top quality charter boat courtesy of the theperfectwave.
*As we had so many top shots we added a couple of runner up prize packs, these go to: Doug Falter and windnsea3475.
So congratulations Adam - you are the winner - how does that feel? You'll be swapping the frigid waters of Nova Scotia for the balmy tropics next spring/summer.
Thanks so much. Well, to say it feels good is an understatement, and the prospect of surfing in shorts and not a 6mm wetsuit is equally amazing. It's an honour to win this competition.
