1ST INNERSECTION WINNER 決定しました。
Matt Meola wins $100,000
GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA: Twenty-one year old Maui surfer Matt Meola was a virtually unknown freesurfer when he entered Innersection.
Since then, he's signed new sponsors, filed multiple magazine profiles, traveled the world and — this week — picked up a cool $100,000.
Not a bad year.
"We're really happy with the result," says Taylor Steele. "The voting was really tight for a bunch of the best sections, but it would be hard to deny that Meola isn't deserving of this win."
Big congratulations to Matt Meola and filmmaker Elliot Leboe. Feel free to watch the section again right here.
Meola gains an automatic spot on next year's film. Competition begins April 1st, 2011 for the next movie. Get ready....
