2019 Ballito Pro Results

Brazil’s Deivid Silva was crowned as the winner of the 2019 Ballito Pro presented by O’Neill after convincingly defeating Australia’s Jack Freestone in the final of the 51st edition of the world’s longest running professional surfing event.

Deivid Silva and Jack Freestone opted for a power surfing strategy on Finals Day. In the 35 minute Final, Silva started strongly by unleashing three massive backhand turns for an excellent 8.33 out of 10, which immediately put his opponent under pressure.

Freestone could only produce a series of low-scoring rides before Silva picked up a beautiful set wave and delivered two gravity-defying manoeuvres that the judges rewarded with a near-perfect 9.3. That put the Australian into a combination situation and needing to find two new scores totalling 17.64 before time ran out and he had to settle for 2nd place.

Freestone looked incredibly comfortable on the last day of competition as he proceeded through the Quarterfinals and Semifinals on his way to his second successive Final at Ballito. The two-time WSL World Junior Champion controlled the first Semifinal against Jorgann Couzinetby performing big hits on the waves he rode while Couzinet fell on several of his rides. The Frenchman made a comeback towards the end of the encounter, but could not find the required score.

Silva dominated his Semifinal clash against Wade Carmichael with excellent wave selection. The eventual winner looked lethal on his backhand, smashing the chunky walls for a total of 11.60 to move into the Final, while Carmichael had took home another 3rd place finish at Ballito.
