Catch me if you can



COFFS Harbour surfer Jayke Sharpe put on a performance that you would expect from the number one seed and current ASP Australasian Pro Junior ratings leader yesterday.

Breaks offering four to five-foot left-handers gave the 20-year-old home-town hero a chance to take advantage of his local knowledge and he didn't let the opportunity slip.

Continual power snaps during his heat saw Sharpe produce two outstanding nine-point rides to demolish his opponents and move straight through to round three of the Billabong Pro Junior at Macauleys.

The natural footer's heat tally of 18 out of a possible 20 was the highest in the event so far.

This morning the girls including Mullaway's Angela Keighran and Sawtell's Kira Townsend get their turn to strut their stuff in front of the judges.
