ROMAIN Cloitre wins 6 star Relentless Boardmasters in assoc. with Vans defeating Mitch Coleborn in a lead swapping final 14.77 to 9.36, to claim his maiden star tour victory in windblown 3-4ft peaks in front of a huge crowd lining the Fistral beach shoreline.
Cloitre searched the longer rights with rapid fire forehand snaps to build his scores and gain a slight advantage through the first half of the encounter to eventually seal his victory with a combination of two powerful backhand smashes securing an 8.17 out of 10 and an unassailable lead.
“I am really happy right now. This is my best victory in my career and I haven’t had any good results in the last few months so I didn’t have a lot of confidence but now I have some and I am really happy. The start of the Europe leg I was travelling with Tom Whitaker a lot and Oakley and he helped me to get my confidence back. He was always saying that I was going to do well in Europe and it has helped me, so thanks Tommy for that.
