Walking on water

COFFS Harbour longboarder Jared Neal certainly gives the impression that he's walking on water in this picture but before anyone starts reporting a miracle of biblical proportions we should tell you that he isn't.

Neal is simply 'hanging 10' at Queensland's Agnes Water during yesterday's final of the Smarts Concrete Agnes Water Longboard Classic presented by Sandcastles.

Having seen a congregation of the best longboard riders in the world, the final day of competition didn't disappoint with big scores and great waves on offer.

As the best in the business revelled in the one-metre conditions on Queensland's famed Discovery Coast, Neal was right in the thick of the action but came up fractionally short in the four-man final to finish in second place behind American Troy Mothershead.
