WORLD JUNIORS MAKE EVERY WAVE LOOK AMAZING

The World Surf League's World Junior Championships are well underway at Kiama, south of Sydney the week. Despite the forecast not being super flash, potential future world champs like Ethan Ewing, Sandon Whittaker and Macy Callaghan have been ripping like the best in the world. 

On day two of the event at Bombo Beach in two-to-three foot waves, Pipe Master's trial winner from Hawaii, Finn McGill found the longest left-handers of the day to move him through to round three. "There is a lot of opportunity to score," Said McGill, "especially with only one other guy out. I feel I made a couple of priority mistakes so I’m stoked to have made it.”

Two of Australia's big hopefuls including Sandon Whittaker and Ethan Ewing both continued high scores through their first elimination round and into round three. 

In the girls, it's Macy Callaghan, Kobie Enright and Lucy Callister who all remain in contention into day three.
