For the second year in a row, San Clemente’s own Greg Long has won the 2009 Billabong XXL thanks to his colassal 51-foot ride at Dungeons. Along with bragging rights for having the biggest cajones, Greg took home the big check worth $50,000. Not bad for someone who didn’t have a single major sponsor behind him until last year’s win. (Gracias Billabong!) Greg is a good friend of the Swell family, and couldn’t be a more well deserving soul. Hey Wheaties: we’ve got your next superstar right here.
