Tuesday October 16, 2012. Oakley ASP World Junior Championships
Hawaii's Ezekiel Lau placed 2nd in the Oakley World Pro Junior Championships at Keramas in Bali today. The powerful Sunset Beach surfer was a standout all event but went down in the final to Australian Jack Freestone. The final scores were Freestone - 13.83 to Lau's - 13.77, missing 1st place by a mere .07 points!! A tough loss? Or an outstanding run that highlights Zeke's talent and emerging dominance? Zeke no doubt put on a stellar performance, and ended up with a sensational result. All good things happening for the 18 year old Hawaiian who has two more years in this Pro Junior division but may well chase the ASP World Qualifying open Series given his great form and potential.
