Last night at the Komune Resort on the Gold Coast, young Hawaiian Matt Meola was crowned the 2010 Innersection champion and he saw his bank account grow by $100,000. Congratulations Matt!

Winning this competition against some of the most talented surfers in the world is priceless. Although the $100,000 certainly doesn't hurt. Photo: Glaser

The night's festivities included live music from fellow Innersection competitor Ozzie Wright and his band the Goons of Doom. Photo: Glaser

  • not surprised

    saw him surf in Maui a few years ago and was super impressed. He seems like a dude that has the ability to do whatever he wants on the wave. stoked for him

  • dusty bottoms

    could the judges hear the music? that was horrendous

  • Rizzle

    That kid rips. His stance is a little wide. Surfs a lot better than 99% of us though.
