    9 April 2011: Floridian surfer and former world number 4, Damien Hobgood (Fl, USA) has claimed his fifth ASP World Tour event victory by taking out the Prime-rated Telstra Drug Aware Pro ahead of local, Yadin Nicol (WA, AUS), at Margaret River in West Australia today.

    Hobgood earned US$40,000 and 6,500 valuable ratings points for his win and moved him to 13th position on the ASP World Rankings.

    Following a hectic week that saw the swell size peak at five-metres, the greatest challenge for competitors on the final day was to find any rides at all. And in the 30-minute decider, Hobgood got the jump on the local crowd favourite by clinching two early scoring waves.
