Tahiti GoPro Challenge Crowns Winner

As if it couldn't get any better than surfing epic, triple-overhead barrels with one other person and water patrol, Nat Young (USA) has won the ASP GoPro Challenge.

Of 18 submissions, Young's sunset shots of a Teahupo'o tube and its reform won over the judges. The Santa Cruz, CA native scores a $10,000 cash prize, plus the best bragging rights short of making the podium.
