The hits keep hitting for North Strabroke Island’s 18-year-old prodigy Ethan Ewing, as he wraps up a banner 2016 with the perfect bow. With 36 of the best male surfers in the world, aged 18 or under, all gathered in the holiday town of Kiama, NSW, Australia, the stage was set for Ewing’s final Junior event. As the top seed and the only surfer in the field qualified for the WSL Championship Tour, he was no doubt the favorite. But, being the favorite means very little at Worlds and he was by no means taking anything for granted. Six heat wins later, Ethan became the rightful owner of a WSL World Championship, every Junior’s dream.

The Junior World Title was the perfect way to cap his year. "This has been such an incredible season for me," Ewing said afterward. "I've worked really hard to get here but I never imagined I'd be where I am."

Surpassing his goal for 2016 of getting enough points to surf in the QS10000 level event is an understatement, Ethan went intergalactic; four Junior Series event wins and the Australiasian Regional Title, two Qualifying Series event wins in four Finals appearances, including a Runner Up finish at the Vans US Open and a Runner Up finish on the year end Rankings, Championship Tour qualification for 2017 and the Triple Crown Rookie of the Year.

Time for a short break before the rookies arrive to Snapper. Congratulations Eth!
