After stops in Scotland, Tasmania, Canada, South Africa, and California, Australian Shaun Cansdell won $50,000 and the the overall title of the O'Neill Coldwater Classic series.

Cansdell lost in Round 3 but had enough points accumulated to take the series after his Santa Cruz roommate Dion Atkinson bowed out in Round 5.

This is only the second year the series has run and is the only cold water series in the world. Check out the CWC home page this evening to find out who won the contest in Santa Cruz.
