Haleiwa, Oahu, HAWAII - (Monday, November 20, 2000)
It was a truly Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa¹s Ali¹i Beach Park with Sunny Garcia and Bonga Perkins taking first place in the G-Shock Hawaiian Pro and Bear Hawaiian Pro Longboard Invitational respectively. Proving that it¹s tough to beat a Hawaiian in their home waters, Garcia led an all-Hawaiian final line-up and the longboard went one-two with Perkins closely followed by Lance Ho¹okano.
Both Garcia and Perkins were untouchable as they carved their way through the rounds. Garcia even posted the highest heat score of the entire competition in the final, with 23.25 points out of a possible 30. While the international contenders did their best to find a winning combination of equipment, wave selection and maneuvers, their best was not enough when pitted against the support of a home crowd, local knowledge and fired-up talent.
