PWA Wave Grand Prix
Brandon Bay, Kerry

Jason Polakow (Neil Pryde/JP) clinched yesterday's men's competition in near perfect down the line wave riding, on the fifth day of the Ireland Wave 2001.
After heavy rain and strong winds on Wednesday Thursday night, Friday morning saw a lull in the weather before it kicked in again around mid morning with a steady 15-20kts south-westerly cross offshore.

In the final, Jason Polakow was up against Bjorn Dunkerbeck (Neil Pryde/Proof) which left Kevin Pritchard (Gaastra/Bic) fighting it out with Peter Volwater (Arrows/F2) for third position in the loser's final.

Both Polakow and Dunkerbeck began on the same wave at the same time, which turned out to be Polakow's best wave. Dunkerbeck pulled out all the stops with his technical mastery and despite catching some of the bigger waves and riding them right up to the inside, he didn't use them to his best advantage. Jason's trademark style of aggressive vertical wave riding and his better aerials of the lip clinched first position for him yesterday.
