Harley Ingleby 2009 ASP World Longboard Champion

hichamp09bigHarley Ingleby has been overlooked for some time, but now things are gonna change! In the second Oxbow event at renown Pasta Point in the Maldives, Harley became the 2009 ASP World Longboarding Champ. With a victory at the first event earlier this year in Japan, Harley needed to bypass the defending champ Bonga Perkins and other world title contenders to secure his first championship title. While he has placed in the top 5 these past few years, the title kept eluding him until now. I met Harley about 7 years ago while filming another surf movie. Since that time, Harley has amazed me with his talent in the water and his solid, to-the-core friendship. I can’t say enough good things about him cause he rules and it’s great to see him reach his professional goals.

What most people find out about Harley when they first meet him is that his skills go further than just riding a longboard. What he can do on any size or shape board is absolutely amazing. Here is a little clip of Harley riding the evolution of Australian surfboards from old Balsa boards to 70’s shortboards. I shot this about 6 years ago when I first visited him at his home in Australia.  Good on ya, Harley! You deserve it!
