Hurley Pro Junior is one of the most prestigious junior surfing events in the world, boasting a world record USD$25,000 first place cheque. The event runs Jan 26th - 30th at Burleigh Heads. Luke Streader (Ht11 round 128), Joe Sandercock (Ht12 round 96), Shannon Mackie (Ht15 round 96) and Nik Hoskin (Ht 16 round 96) are all in the event. The swell forecast looks good and if the wind clocks around to the SE the waves should be cracking.  Good luck fellas.

Update Jan 27th
Luke progressed into round 3 after finishing second in a tight round 2 heat in tough conditions. He will surf in the same heat as Joey in the next round which could be an advantage if they can look out for each other. Hiroto Arai, who is a good mate of many Le-Ba members,  had  convincing wins in his round 2 and round 3 heats.

Update Jan 28th
All the fellas were knocked in the round of 96 today.
