Nixon First WTA
BOBBY MARTINEZ CLAIMS FIRST 2009 NIXON WTA WIN
 
ENCINITAS, CA – Bobby Martinez (USA) won the first stop of the 2009 Nixon WTA (Winner-Takes-All) at the Billabong Pro last week in Teahupoo, Tahiti. Martinez, currently ranked 7 in the WCT/ ASP ratings, beat out Josh Kerr (AUS), Dean Morrison (AUS) and Miky Picon (FRA) for taking off on the heaviest wave of the event. Wave conditions varied from small to medium throughout the week with Teahupoo resisting to show her true strength. None-the-less, in the final, Martinez was able to snag the heaviest barrel of the event solidifying both his overall win at the Billabong Pro as well as the award for Nixon’s WTA “Heaviest Wave” title and a custom watch valued at over $10,000 USD.
