Damien Hobgood takes second to Joel Parkinson in the Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay. Damo had a rough time finding a rhythm in the challenging conditions. However, his 2nd place finish marks his second career result at this stop.
â€śItâ€™s an honor to come here every year,â€ť Hobgood said. â€śThe place is magical and itâ€™s just so beautiful. Itâ€™s easy to get distracted by how beautiful it looks when waves are coming down the point. Todayâ€™s result catapults Hobgood from 10th to 5th on the ASP World Tour ratings, putting him in excellent position for the second half of the season.
