Small surf claims local
By BRAD GREENSHIELDS
COFFS Harbour surfer Otis Carey struggled in the tiny waves on day one of the Billabong Pro Junior at Wollongong yesterday.
The powerfully built surfer was eliminated in his opening round heat after finding it hard to pick up any decent sized waves capable of delivering a decent score on.
The Coffs Coast region is still well represented with the event's number two seed in Heath Joske beginning his campaign at the event this morning coming into the tournament off Sandon Point as a seeded round two surfer.
The world class right-hand point break with it's reputation for big long walls and gaping tube sections is playing host to the penultimate event on the Billabong Pro Junior series with a total prize money pool of $13,000 on offer.
