Gold Coast surfer Josh Kerr, top seed at the Reef Pro El Salvador and current ASP World No 9, was one to watch in each round, commanding several heats on his way to the final. Kerr would top ASP World Junior Champion Caio Ibelli from Brazil and fellow Aussie Wade Carmichael on his way to the final, but was unable to surpass Peterson Crisanto from Brazil’s rampage finishing runner-up.

‘It’s a long way to the final and it’s tough to lose, but it was definitely a good event,’ said Kerr. ‘It’s such a sick wave and it’s too bad the waves didn’t show up for the final. It slowed down so much and it was kind of pumping just before the final. It was a sick event. It’s my first time to El Salvador and the place is amazing.’

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
