Eathen Jackson has stolen a march on his chief rivals for the 2010 Super Groms title with a brilliant display in the July pointscore.
The goofyfooting pocket rocket aced out Dion Earle, Roan O’Sullivan and Dane Coady in the final, held in small, clean righthanders.
The Groms had the break and the contest to themselves after the swell abated, making a start for the Juniors and Open impossible.
Eathen excelled with strong cutties and a sweet head-dip, Dion had turns and length of ride on his side, while Roan was big on multiple snaps every wave.
With previous frontrunner Nathan Martin on surfari with his folks, Eathen has gained a handy points advantage.
Dane Coady put in a brave effort, while the best two girl riders in Cronulla – Shannon Hatheier and Jae Withers – both pushed the limits!
