(Merewether, NSW, Australia,
Surfing sensation Laura Enever (Narrabeen) not only made it two wins from two starts on the ASP Australasian junior girls tour, but also racked up a hat-trick of wins at Newcastle by taking out the girls competition for the third year in a row.
Enever (13.25) defeated 18-year-old Brittani Nicholl (Cabarita Beach) (7.80).
Now sitting firmly atop the ASP Australasian junior girls ratings, the 2008 International Surfing Association (ISA) U/18 world champion’s win in today’s Arnette Pro Junior saw her pocket $1000.
Enever says Newcastle is consistently proving to be a happy hunting ground.
“I love surfing in Newcastle. I just seem to get the waves here,” the 17-year-old said.
“This is a real confidence boost for me going into this week’s Maitland Toyota Open,” she said.
“I am feeling really good about my surfing,” she said, which is just as well as Enever is will defend her ISA title in Ecuador in a fortnight’s time.
WQS action recommences on Wednesday at Merewether Beach. Tomorrow sees a Triple O Challenge and Tuesday will see a longboard competition.
