Thomas Kibblewhite – National Title

Latest News // Surf

Tom Kibblewhite. A couple of days ago he was just a normal bloke living a normal life. Now he is the best longboarder in the country.

After winning the national title Tom was absolutely stoked. “The whole thing was a bit of a shock to me and I’m very humbled by the turn out!”

Kibblewhite finally won the national title after placing runner up for the past three years.

Kibblewhite defeated first time finalist Matt Cockayne (Auck) who won a tight three way battle for the minor placings ahead of Kelly Ryan (Gis) and Cale Tolley (Mnt).

Underground skate (Us) would like to congratulate Tom on all the hard training he has done to come out on top. Well done Tom.
