After extreme conditions on the first day of competition, the organisers of the 2013 HIF Yallingup Malibu Classic ran the whole competition on the Sunday utilising twin peaks at Yallingup. The Saturday saw the swell running at 4 metres plus with strong onshore winds. An attempt was made to hold the competition at Injidup Car Park but the conditions there were also extreme. The competition was run on Sunday with a swell of 2.2 metres and variable onshore conditions.

Sunday saw some very good surfing with Justin Redman again taking out the Open Men’s division from Dan Corbett, Rahn Goddard and Hamish Gibson and the Open Women’s division was won by Georgia Young from Sam Vanderford, Erin Dark, Rosie Locke and Lucy Small.

All divisional winners are as follows:

Open Men: Justin Redman, Dan Corbett, Rahn Goddard, Hamish Gibson

Open Women: Georgia Young, Sam Vanderford, Erin Dark, Rosie Locke, Lucy Small

Over 60 Men: Bob Monkman, Nigel Coote, Philip Clifford, George Micallef
