"This is unbelievable!",Shiiba said. “I’m surprised that I won and I am so happy! There are a lot of good surfers at this event and I am so happy to win. I just tried to focus on catching all of the good waves. I was watching all of the other heats and I saw that to win you have to wait for the best waves. It’s very windy, but the surf is still really good and the wind was good for airs which helped me win. I love Taiwan, I’ll be back next year!”
