Supergrom Ellis Ericson has been ripping it up in all the junior comps around Oz lately, a 1st in the Billabong Occy Grom Comp, 2nd placing in the Under 16’S at the Rusty Gromfest….damn this kid is on fire.
Also in the Billabong Occy Grom Comp, Sally Fitzgibbons came 1st in the 14’s girls and 2nd in the under 16′ Girls. The waves were pretty small at D-bah, but she made the best of lacklustre conditions. In the Rusty Gromfest Sally was successful in making the final with a 3rd placing. Definitely a threat for the future…stay tuned.
Kerby Brown was seen lurking at the Surfer Mag Poll Awards with photog. Sponna’s, the pair had just been down in Mexico chasing some swell and if you hadn’t noticed Kerby’s cover killings lately then you must have been asleep – ie. his Waves and Tracks covers from up north WA last month!!! By all reports the kid is rocking his hometown to bits, and has the likes of
WA’s own big wave hellman Paul Paterson calling him a FREAK! We’ve gotta agree…..hear, hear for the Kerb’s!!!!!
Still in the US and still on the topic of the Surfer Mag Poll Awards, the etnies team might not have taken any of the trophy’s – but the ever exclusive, never elusive team represented hard, with Etnies Team Manager (US) Brandon Lillard leading the smartly dressed unit consisting of Conan Hayes (rumour is he is due to wed again soon, we wish him all the best), Toby Martin (who just celebrated his 28th B’day in style), Kerby Brown, and….whoa….I think someone even saw one of those Malloy guys!!! (at this
stage we cannot confirm or deny this particular rumour!!!)
Toby Martin placed 3rd in Lacanau (France) WQS, sitting on 7th placing on the WQS, Danny Wills is in 15th placing on the WCT….Willsy was on fire in Japan putting all on notice with some big airs in his heat! Boy can punt!!!
That’s it people’s…over and out till next time.
