Last Sunday was the final day of the 2016 Volcom TCT Championship at Nth Narrabeen – it was blessed with an amazing 3ft to 4ft south east swell, pouring through ‘Alley Rights’ for the entire day.
In the Junior Men’s event, Byron surfer Kyuss King jumped out to a quick lead in the final with faultless surfing, picking off some of the longer lefts in the finals.
King had the field combo-ed until the final minutes, when Sandon Whittaker fought back to make things exciting and bring it down to the wire.
Unfortunately for Whittaker, he just fell short, finishing with a heat total of 17.4 behind Kyuss’ 18.27, leaving Noah Kerney in third with a 14.44 and Ethan Stocks in fourth with a 10.16.
King battled it out against the best surfers from around the country over the weekend to claim the 2016 Volcom TCT Junior Men’s Australian title and a spot into the World Championships held at Lowers California USA June 2016.
