The third instalment of the premier junior surfing series, marks half way in the search for the top grommets to compete at the International Teenage Rampage next January in Cronulla.
Conditions were challenging but contestable and the under 16 boys final came down to the dying seconds when Luca Elda (Bungan Beach) saved his best for last in a nail biting finish.
"The waves were very small, I was lucky when the waves came so I sat on the shallow bank and when the other boys got the first set I kept getting up on the inside just waiting", said Elder.
"They called 20 seconds and one last wave came, I paddled my heart out for it. I got a couple of hits on it, I had no idea if I won, Connor is won of my best mates and it didn't matter if I got first or second I was stoked for both of us", said Elder.
