Zee’s winning run was the very first of the final, the local favorite registering 79.30 points from the judges. He began with a gnarly cab 270 gap to the down rail, followed by a frontside 720, a backside 900, switch backside double cork 1080 and a switch 50-50 on the final feature which Zee said he was “actually surprised” he landed.

 
Zee now has 500 valuable World Snowboard Tour ranking points next to his name, US$5,000 in prize money and a swag of prizes that included a state-of-the-art NEXF3 single lens kit camera Sony Camera.
 
Prior’s run included an air over the petrol tank, a boardslide onto the rail, a frontside rodeo 540, a cab 540, backside 360 and then a method air off the pole to finish. Prior achieved a mini milestone with her win, placing on the podium’s top spot ahead of experienced local Wanaka local and Qualifying winner Shelly Gotlieb (Wanaka, NZL).
 
The Billabong Bro Down presented by Xperia Sony Smartphone is the first southern Hemisphere stop on the 2012/13 World Snowboard Tour.
