Miss the action at Burleigh Heads this weekend? Here’s what happened…
-Sunny’s teenage son got into it with a couple other surfers at Burleigh Heads during a freesurf.
-Jeremy Flores, who is pals with Sunny and surfing with his son, paddled over as the situation escalated.
-After seeing what was happening, Sunny ran down the point, put the guy into a choke hold and dunked him a few times.
-Sunny snapped on a guy on the beach who filmed it all happen.
As of now no charges have been filed against either ASP World Tour surfer. However, Sunny and Jeremy were promptly disqualified from the event. According to a post news.ninemsn.com.au, Sunny has also been banned from an upcoming event in Newcastle.
The ASP released the following statement:
“Following a physical altercation today, Jeremy Flores, has been disqualified from the event.
