The Rock-itt : April 2010
Photos and Story by DaveTozer.com.au (for more amazing images of the event visit www.myspace.com/dav etozerphotos) Jordy Smith (ZAF),Chippa Wilson, Josh Kerr and North Narrabeen's Cooper Chapman. Our local boy, Cooper Chapman, has been ranked the best 16 years and under surfer in the country and to finish second in this contest at such a young age is an impressive and extraordinary result to say the least! With a 4-5 foot swell at Bondi Beach on the day, Owen's massive full rotating aerial scored a near perfect 9.8 (out of a possible 10) then he backed it up with a similar manoeuvre scoring 8.3, which saw him take out the event. Cooper Chapman was his closest competitor, scoring a 7.17 for a front-side air reverse. Third place was Chippa Wilson, followed by Mick Fanning, with Jordy Smith and Josh Kerr sharing fifth. With more than 30,000 spectators watching this spectacular event, in near perfect conditions, this truly was a long overdue welcome return to Surfing Competition at Bondi Beach after a 20 year absence.
