Dan Worsely: the winner will meet the pros

South African competitor Daniel Worsely has taken out the 2010 Brett Young Shark Island Trials at Cronulla Point under crisp winter skies.

Todays competition was tough from the first heat. When the international field shaped up at first light the waves were small but conditions where perfect and highly contestable. With small tricky condition some of the closest heats in the events history were recorded with most place getters being only separated by less than point.


By the time the final hit the water spectators were treated to an intense battle for the top 2 places which would guarantee a position into the main event. Local 15 year old ripper Sam Strachen had been on fire all competition with solid support from the local crowd, Tom Smith had been dominating all day with clear heat wins as was Shaun Peterson showing solid wave knowledge and landing big moves. South African Daniel Worsley was on fire all day and from the opening minutes of the final he shown everyone he was out for a win linking big moves on the outside and finishing strong on the inside section.

After 30 minutes of tough competition the results were read out and a new event winner was announced. Daniel Worsely and Sam Strachan had finished first ad second and earned themselves a place in Bodyboarding's biggest Australian event.

Dan said " It's awesome to be able to win this event and the biggest reward is being able to compete in the main event its just amazing".
