Sea Sessions Highlights

HIGHLIGHTS of the Barefoot Wines Expression Session at Sea Sessions won by 18-year-old William Aliotti.

Aliotti pulled off a massive backhand air-reverse in peaky wind affected 3ft waves at Main Beach, Bundoran in front of a crowd of appreciative onlookers. The event saw some of the highest level surfing ever produced in a competition in Ireland. It came down to a titanic struggle during the 30-minute winner takes all final. Victory and the 1,500 Euro winner's cheque swapped hands on several occasions as the aerial acrobatics were continuously being surpassed to higher levels of performance.

Aliotti secured his name on this year's Barefoot Wines Expression Session in assoc. with Billabong title and could not have been happier with the final result as he emerged from the line up to the applause of the crowd.

"Finally I have won an event and I am really stoked. It's cool. I love it here in Ireland." Said Will "The people, the festival was great and the waves were good, it was a bit windy but I felt at home and it has been well worth the trip here to Ireland. I hope to come back next year and see the spots with some really good waves."
