Malia Manuel

Clean one-to-two-foot (0.5 metre) lefts and rights were on offer this morning, prompting event organizers to unleash the world’s best junior surfers on the sandbars North Narrabeen for the commencement of the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships fueled by Monster Energy.

Wiggolly Dantas (BRA), 20, was nearly flawless on his backhand this afternoon the stylish Brazilian dissecting the running Alley righthanders to net several impressive scoring rides en route to acquiring the day’s high heat total of 14.66 out of a possible 20.

“The waves are tough out there but the righthanders are lining up much better than the lefts,” Dantas said. “I have a really good board under my feet and felt really good today.”

Brazilians have claimed four of the past 10 ASP World Junior Titles, and Dantas now leads one of the strongest ASP South American teams in history in North Narrabeen.
