    O'FERREL: "Overnight the two-metre swell on Saturday had got to under one metre and Wanda Beach was chosen for the final. The four semi-finalists were Wayne Bartholomew from Queensland, Danne Kealoha from Hawaii, Mark Richards, Newcastle, and Mark Liddell, another Hawaiian ...



    Top seed Mark Richards made a very bad error in his semi-final with Danne Kealoha when he took this way of dropping in on the Hawaiian ...



    While not disqualified for doing so, he lost the semis, putting Danne straight into the final.



    Meanwhile, another Hawaiian, Mark Liddell couldn't get his (indistinct) going in his semi-final and went down to a very (indistinct) Bartholomew.



    And so, the final, and Kealoha paddling out against (indistinct) Keoloha chose the more flashy style going for 360-degree turns, making some and losing others He won the first section, (indistinct) the second and then in the tie-breaker Bartholomew powered his way to victory.

    Background: In Australia, Wayne Bartholomew of Queensland has won the final of the 23,000-dollar (about 11,000 pounds sterling) "Straight Talk Tyres Southside" open surfing title. The finals took place at Wanda Beach in Sydney on Sunday (2 March 1980) and it was an important day for Bartholomew who's been trying to win a big competition since his world championship win in Hawaii in 1977. Danne Kealoha of Hawaii was second, Mark Richards of Newcastle was third and Wayne Liddell of Hawaii was fourth. For the first time in Australia the series was modelled on a new scoring system based on the Olympic skating system. Bartholomew collected a purse of 10,000 dollars (about 5,000 pounds sterling) after beating Kealoha 3-4, 6-1, 4-3. Steve O'Ferrel of Channel 10 in Sydney reports:
