Mitch Coleborn scoops Fiji WildcardPosted 28 May 2012, by STABmag
Oh, the sweet perks of your sponsor hosting a World Tour event. Mitch Coleborn, 25 years old and from Australia’s Sunshine Coast, has been given one of two wildcard spots for the Volcom Pro, Fiji. “Tavarua is one of my favorite places in the world,” says Mitch, who’s recently decided to take a serious crack at WT qualification. “To compete at a world-class wave makes for a really even playing field. Everyone will get sick waves, from the vets to the rookies; it will come down to your surfing and that keeps match-ups real fair. I can’t wait.”
The other wildcard will go to the local Fijian trials winner. The contest starts in five days, over here. Excited?
