Jase Finlay claims the 2017 Shark Island Challenge

Jase Finlay has taken out the prestigious 2017 Shark Island Challenge, in New South Wales.

The 20th anniversary of the event got underway in wind-affected, four-to-six foot waves, at the notorious Australian slab break.

The spot pumped its classic deep and hollow right-hand barrels, but there were also a few occasional left-handers pumping down the line under sunny skies and heavy showers.
