A Press Launch To Remember As Internationals Dominate Day-One Of The 2010 Hurley Burleigh Pro Junior

INTERNATIONAL competitors have dominated day one the 2010 Hurley Burleigh Pro Junior presented by Nike 6.0, with overseas imports going toe-to-toe with domestic stars in round one of competition.
However, there was as much action out of the water, with Hurley officially opening the event with a media conference that had everyone talking.
Special guests included 1978 World Champion Wayne Bartholomew who received a gift from founder of Hurley International - Bob Hurley.
Bob Hurley travelled to the first day of the event all the way from him Californian home and presented Bartholomew with a replica of a surfboard Hurley shaped for Bartholomew in the 1980’s.
Before that, 1988 World Champion Barton Lynch and former top world tour competitor Pat O’Connell as well as a host of top junior surfers including Mitch Crews (Currumbin, Qld), Chris Friend (Alex Headland, Qld), Chris Salisbury (Newport, NSW), Davey Cathels (Narrabeen, NSW) and Nat Young (Santa Cruz, USA) entertained an eager media gallery who were clearly excited to be in the same room with so many surfing legends.
The main theme of the launch touched on Hurley’s initiatives in regards to prize money after it was announced late last year that the winner of this year’s event would receive a professional junior world record USD$25,000.
Meanwhile, in the water - Coming from the same Hawaiian Island as three-time World Champion Andy Irons, 18-year-old Dylan Goodale sent a warning shot to his rivals registering a day high combined two wave total of 15.08 (out of possible 20).
Goodale said he was enjoying the small, tricky conditions treating the beach-break of Burleigh Heads like a skate park.
“It wasn’t quite the Burleigh Heads that I’ve heard so much about, but it was still fun on the beach break despite not being able to surf the point,” he said.
The January 22-26 competition window of the 2010 Hurley Burleigh Pro Junior presented by Nike 6.0 will also see the event’s finals conclude amidst the celebrations of Australia’s national day, bolstering the already festival style atmosphere associated with Hurley surfing events.  

The Hurley Burleigh Pro Junior presented by Nike 6.0 is proudly supported by Hurley, ASP Australasia, Surfing Queensland, Electric, Redbull, Coastalwatch, Australia’s Surfing Life Magazine and Aerial 7.
