Pipe Master Kieren Perrow Powers Up On Penultimate Day At Volcom Kirra Teams Challenge

COOLANGATA/QLD (18th February, 2012): Pipe Master Kieren Perrow returned to the base of his competitive surfing career on the Gold Coast today, powering to a heat victory for Byron Bay Boardriders on the penultimate day of the Volcom Kirra Teams Challenge.

The 2011 ASP World Title no.15 ranked surfer said competing in a grassroots club event was a fantastic way to give back to where he came from.

“I came through Byron Boardriders and was 13 when I joined the club. It gives you a taste of competing and brings the young kids into the competitive arena. They all supported me in what I was doing. It forms the foundation of your competitive surfing career."

In clean 2-4ft (1 metre) peaky waves at Duranbah, Perrow unleashed a bevy of forehand moves to accrue a heat winning total of 11.93 (out of a possible 20).

Perrow netting a 6.83 and a 5.1  to beat Steve Clements (Long Reef), Jack Duggan (Coolum) and Tony Paris (Mudjimba).

Joining Perrow on the winner’s dais today was Noosa Boardrider Shaun Stevic, who amassed a 14.6 total.

The Sunshine Coast surfer backhand blasting his way to victory over Matt Gale (Werri), Hayden Blair (Scarborough) and Brian Balthazar (Palm Beach).

Other surfers to excel on Day 2 were Wade Carmichael (Avoca), who netted the day's highest individual wave score (9.7) and combined total (18.2), along with Jack Freestone (D-Bah) and Brent Dorrington (D-Bah).

At the completion of Round 5, D-Bah Boardriders were leading from Avoca, Byron Bay, Cabarita and North Shelley.

Snapper Rocks Surfriders Club are the defending champion and are also chasing their 10th Kirra Teams Challenge title.

A quality day of finals action is expected tomorrow with World Tour surfers Mick Fanning (Kirra Surfriders) and Bede Durbidge (Point Lookout) hitting the water.

The event can be followed live through www.compusurf.com.au, which also includes a full record of scores.

Competition starts at Duranbah at 8am on all three days and will conclude at 4pm on Saturday and 2.30pm on Sunday.
