CORRIMAL kneeboard surfer Albert Munoz recently won his second open world title, beating Wollongong’s Chayne Simpson in a close contest at “The Wedge” at Surf Beach, Kiama. 

The man-on-man final was the culmination of an exciting week of surfing at the 2015 ISA World Kneeboard Championships.

A total of 117 surfers from 11 nations gathered in Kiama for the week-long festival. 

Competitors hailed from the USA, Tahiti, New Zealand, France, Spain, South Africa, England, Japan, Ireland, Brazil and all throughout Australia for the event, which is held every two years in various locations around the globe.

The competition took place from September 13-20.

The competition stayed at Bombo for three days, before moving to The Wedge.  

Munoz had to beat Cronulla’s two-time world champion, Gavin Colman to make the final, while Simpson had to face five-time world champion, Simon Farrer of Shellharbour.

Munoz ultimately edged out his good friend by three points to take the title.
