The Four Seasons Resorts Maldives Champions Trophy is a mouthful, but it's also billed as the most luxurious surfing on the planet. It's also the most fun. With champions from eras past take on a three-day format that sees them having to surf on single fins, twin fins and thrusters. Day 1 had super fun wave at Sultans where Josh Kerr took the chocolates with an incredible performance. Check the photos below!

He goes to the top of the leaderboard – followed closely by 2001 World Champ CJ Hobgood, and then Freddy P and Alejo Muniz a little further back. Next up will be the twin fin division, likely to go  tomorrow.
