Not One To Weep, Julian Shook Off His Dbah Loss And Did This At Bells
One of the cleanest rotes we’ve seen.
You might have noticed that last year’s second-ranked WSL surfer, Julian Wilson, lost his Round 3 heat at the Quik Pro Snapper Dbah, falling to event wildcard and new Hurley-signee Reef Heazlewood.
Which for a World Title hopeful, and especially somebody who won the Gold Coast event in 2018, would be particularly devastating.
But Julian did not wallow. He might have wept, but only for a moment. Then he booked a ticket to Avalon, packed a few wetties and was on his way to Bells, which, we might remind you, is more than a week away from starting.
And look at what he did.
Enough to beat Italo, you think?
See ya next week!
