Dimity 2nd at Oakley World Pro Junior
Dimity Stoyle (Aus/Qld/Sunshine Coast) placed second at the Oakley World Pro Junior in Bali today. Stoyle was defeated in a high scoring final by Hawaiian 20 year old Coco Ho --- who is also currently the number 6 ranked surfer in the world on the ASP rankings.
A great result for Stoyle, 2nd in the first of three events to decide the ASP World Pro Junior champion, the next event later this month in Brazil and the final decider on the Gold Coast in January.
The Oakley World Pro Junior is the first of three events to decide the Association of Surfing Professionals World Junior Champions for the 2011 season. The event runs between two quality surf locations on the surf rich island of Bali and has an event window period of October 3 to October 14 - with the event likely to run across the 7 best surf day's in this period. The 2010 Men's winner was Jack Freestone of Australia and he will defend his title and the women's top seed this year is Coco Ho of Hawaii.
