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.

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.”
