The Nike 6.0 Pier Pressure Pro Junior event started today in sloppy 2' - 3' windswell at the legendary Huntington Beach Pier. Stuart Kennedy showed why he is current No. 1 on the ASP Australasia Pro Junior Series, advancing through three heats today over his North American competitors.

“I'm just trying to take it heat by heat, and trying to get more comfortable because I haven't surfed a competition in about a month and a half,” said Stu. “I won the last contest at home, so it's a good confidence builder coming to a different country. I've never competed overseas before, and I'm just trying to enjoy my time over here.”
"It's a good setup and all the boys get spoiled with how much money the sponsors put into these events, and it's good to be a part of it,”
Stu surfs next in heat 2 of the round of 32. Go hard Stu !!
