After taking out four consecutive WSL Pro Junior events this season, Ethan Ewing from Point Lookout has been crowned Australasian Pro Junior Champion at the Subway Surf Series event at Wollongong. A dominant force on the Pro Junior Series, Ethan has looked unstoppable from the beginning of the year after taking his maiden QS victory at Burleigh Heads in February. Since then, he has been on a rampage clinching the Pro Junior title with one event left on the Junior Series schedule.
Ethan spoke to the WSL after confirmation he was the 2016 Pro Junior Champ.
“It’s been a busy start to 2016 and it’s easily the busiest I’ve ever been, but I’m so stoked on the results I’ve got so far,” said Ewing. “This was my goal coming into 2016. I only won one Pro Junior event in 2015 and I knew I really wasn’t focused enough and I learnt you need to take every heat seriously and worked on my consistency. I’ll be looking to hit the QS events over the rest of the year and hopefully I can keep the roll going.”
