Billabong World Jrs. Update

The Vans ams are down under for the Jr. Worlds, Andrew Doheny made it through the 1st round before losing his lead in the final seconds to S. African, Klee Strachan. Next and also responsible for one the biggest upsets of the event was 16 year old Leila Hurst, who went down in a close semi-final to Bethany Hamilton, not before taking out Coco Ho in the 3rd round. Coco, in her rookie year on the women's WCT, was a favorite for the World Jrs. Last but not least is Tanner Gudauskas, currently awaiting to face off against Brazil's Alejo Muniz in round 4, Tanner has been on fire surfing extremely well and posting solid scores that left huge gaps between himself and his competitors. Today is the last day of the event so if all goes well Tanner will surf his way through round 4, quarters, semis and on to the finals. For more details and live results go to
