Hermanus born bodyboarder Tristan Roberts was crowned world champion of the waves at a bodyboarder tournament in Gran Canaria held over the weekend.
Roberts won his first world title at the 2019 APB World Tour after a very difficult start to his season.
The 22-year-old hails from Onrus, a small village in Hermanus, Western Cape and started bodyboarding at the age of six.
Tristan spoke to 702 and shared his joy at achieving this feat, “It seemed almost impossible, I still don’t know how I did it”, said Tristan.
