Byron Bay’s Soli Bailey maintained his excellent barrel-riding reputation with a quarterfinal finish at the Volcom Pipe Pro on Hawaii’s North Shore. 

He top scored with an excellent 8.5 super-deep Pipe wave where he disappeared, and then when all looked lost, re-appeared in a Houdini-like manner.

With his result Bailey has kick-started his year goal to back up his Championship Tour debut at Snapper Rocks with more appearances in qualifying events.

He scored US$950 at the QS 3,000 level event.

Byron Bay’s Kyuss King made it into round five.

Bailey is a former winner, taking out the prestigious event in 2017.  

Nyxie Ryan from Lennox Head finished on the podium at the 2019 Lake Macquarie City Pro Junior with her third-place finish netting her $600 and valuable points on the JQS ratings.

Nyxie has a chance to qualify for the World Pro Junior championships.

This year’s Byron Bay Boardriders signon day is scheduled for Saturday 23 February, 2–4pm at the Park Hotel, Suffolk Park.
