Oakley World Pro Jr Day 2 from Bali
Sunny skies and another day of fun peaky surf at the secondary site of Canggu greeted competitors in the Oakley World Pro Jr this morning. With a good swell forecasted for tomorrow, event directors decided to run a full day at the more consistent rock/beachbreak of Canggu, and wait til tomorrow to relocate to Keramas, where hopefully some epic tube rides will go down at the hollow righthand reefbreak.
The day started with the girls running their Round Two 3-way battles before the men were given the green light.
The heat of the day saw Conner Coffin win a dogfight over defending ASP Jr Bali Champion Jack Freestone in heat 8. The two traded the heat lead back and forth for much of the heat, until Coffin layed down some man-boy hacks to edge out Freestone by less than a point.
Look for some epic waves and surfing tomorrow as the event is expected to commence at Keramas.
The Oakley World Pro Junior Bali will run from October 3 - 14.
