Xavier impresses in Julian Wilson's invitational event

Monday, 12 February 2018

VIS surfer, Xavier Huxtable, has claimed top spot at the Julian Wilson invitational event at Yaroomba over the weekend.


The 15-year-old outclassed some of the country’s best junior surfers in a competition format comparable to World Surf LeagueWorld Tour events, in which he aims to compete in the near future.


"It was amazing, getting the experience of what it's like to do a CT (Championship Tour) event and I hope to be there one day and doing it,” Huxtable said.


"I was lucky enough to be on good waves all day and get through my heats,”


"It was a long day and I managed to keep my form throughout the heats and was able to win it.”


Huxtable has his sights set on making appearances at the Pro Junior and Qualifying Series events later this year.
