Jeff Hubbard (HAW) has won the 2012 IBA Encanto Pro in rampy 4-6 foot waves at Middles Beach today. The 2x World Champion defeated wildcard Ruben “Babby” Quinones (PR) in the final with a total heat score of 16.55 vs 12.70.
After the final Quinones was carried and cheered up the beach by his friends and fans as he flew the Puerto Rican flag with pride.
When asked about his road to the final, Hubbard explained: “I was in focus mode all day. I was trying not to think about the title race or be too distracted by Winnies performance. It was hard, because he was killing it.”
