Gisborne's Jay Quinn has claimed his third national surfing title, winning the Open Men's division of the 2013 championships at Piha.
In testing 1.5 to two-metre waves, Quinn won out over his older brother Maz in a low-scoring but tight 25-minute final.
It is Quinn's third Open Men's title after winning his first in 2008 at home in Gisborne and then again two years later at Dunedin. His third title puts him one behind Maz who has won four dating back to 1996.
Tairua's Sean Peggs was third in his first national final.
