Grace­town’s Rick Jakovich was named Open Men’s State Cham­pion at the WA Stand Up Pad­dle­board Ti­tles at the week­end.

Strong winds and rough swell at Man­durah’s Avalon Beach of­fered dif­fi­cult con­di­tions for WA’s most ex­pe­ri­enced SUP surfers, but Jakovich proved to be at the top of his game, also scor­ing wave of the day.

Jakovich’s vic­tory was fol­lowed by his brother Jake Jakovich plac­ing sec­ond, with by Chris Twomey (Kar­rinyup) and Craw­ford Ol­ney (Spear­wood) in third and fourth.

Jakovich said it was the tough­est event he had com­peted in for years.

Bea­cons­field’s Su­san­nah Wil­son was named Open Women’s State Cham­pion, while Melville’s Sam McCol­lough took the un­der-18 Ju­nior State Cham­pion ti­tle.

Yallingup’s Richard Wain placed third in the over-50s men’s di­vi­sion.

Jakovich will now pre­pare for the up­com­ing Aus­tralian SUP Ti­tles in Queens­land.
