Every year some of the world’s best former touring pros gather in the Maldives for The Four Seasons Resorts Maldives Champions Trophy.

This year Taj Burrow, Shane Dorian, Rob Machado, Jamie O and Bethany Hamilton are among the invitees.

It is a super cool event whereby surfers compete on single fins, twinnies and thrusters in the beautiful, sometimes hollow walls at Sultans.

Competition in the single fin event got underway yesterday in pumping 3 to 4 foot clean right-handers at Sultans.

Burrow, who had never ridden a single fin before yesterday’s comp, won in stylish fashion.

Burrow came up against former Pipe Master Rob Machado in the final.

Taj came out on top.

Burrow said. “That was just so much fun, the waves are sick and my board felt really good. It’s a bit bigger than what I’m used to but you could really push it through turns. I’m just having such a sick time here on Kuda Huraa we’re all being so spoiled.”
