The final four moved through three rounds, beating out more than 40 other surfers who came to the beach to compete for the $12,500 prize purse – the largest prize purse in Canada.
Contest Director and Canadian Surfing Association President Dom Domic said “In earlier rounds Devries looked beatable, but when it came to the final heat he found anther gear, scoring greater than the waves given scoring potential to seal the Rip Curl Pro Tofino crown for the fifth time. He has solidified his dominance in the Canadian surf scene with this win alongside his Cold Water Classic win up against the world’s best in 2009.”
