Smith und Atherton gewinnen Junioren WM im Wellenreiten:

Am vergangenen Wochenende wurde die Weltmeisterschaft der Junioren im Wellenreiten entschieden. Im australischen North Narrabeen sicherten sich Jordy Smith und Nicole Atherton den Titel.

In der Vergangenheit haben die heutigen Surfsuperstars Andy Irons (3-maliger Weltmeister) und Joel Parkinson diesen Titel auch schon gewonnen.

Hier die Originalmeldung:

South African surfing prodigy Jordy Smith has won the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships, defeating Adriano de Souza (Brazil), winner of the event in 2003.

The pair went wave for wave in the high performance finale, but it was 18 year-old Smith who claimed the victory after taking the lead with 7 minutes remaining in the 35 minute clash courtesy of a 7.67 ride. Smith finished with a heat total of 13.84 to de Souza's 12.83 to claim a maiden World Title.

Jordy Smith blasted on the world scene in 2006 when reaching the semi finals of the Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay last July as a wildcard. He went on with a stellar performance on Hawaii’s North Shore which saw him jump to 26th on the World Qualifying Series (WQS) and challenge for the prestigious Triple Crown. He will now compete in the WQS circuit hoping to qualify for the elite WCT in 2008.

Earlier in the week-end, Australian Nicola Atherton won the Women's division against fellow Billabong team member Anali Gomez, of Peru. The Australian surfer took the most of the one-meter waves on offer for the finals and cemented her victory with a 8,17 wave.

European surfers put on a good performance in the Billabong World Junior Championships, with Jean Sebastian Estienne (Guadeloupe) reaching Round 4 (where he was eliminated by Jordy Smith) and Pierre Valentin Laborde making it to the Quarter Finals.
In the Girl's Division, the three french surfers Lee Ann Curren, Pauline Ado and Alizee Arnaud reached the Quarter Finals.
