Australian Taj Burrow wins Santa Cruz surfing contest

Taj Burrow of Yallingup, Western Australia, won the 2012 O'Neill Coldwater Classic in November defeating countryman Matt Wilkinson in the final 13.10 to 12.70 (both out of 20.00). Burrow moved to No. 6 on the ASP world rankings.

The Association of Surfing Professionals event was held at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz. The ASP brought a World Tour event to Ocean Beach in San Francisco last year giving the Bay Area a taste of top surfing two years running.
