CRONULLA (Thursday 12th July, 2012): The Emerald NSW Bodyboard State Titles Round 2 opened up at North Cronulla Beach today with a small 2ft north east swell and light winds. The youngest competitors surfed for their chance to be crowned NSW Champions and make their way to the Australian Titles.
Cadets took to the water first with Rusta King (Newcastle) taking the win with a 13.00 point total heat score. Unfortunately Rusta fell short in round 2 ending his run in the cadets. Rusta will be back to battle the Open Men tomorrow.
Joe Burke (Copacabana) placed 4th in round one of the cadets but bounced back in style performing for the judges. Joe surfed through the re-qualifer scoring the highest single wave of the day, 9.23.

Joe stated, "It was mid way through the heat i got a small one, built up speed and landed an ARS into a roll. This pushed me up to first taking away the win and confidence leading to round 2".

Kurt Gillan (Port Macquarie) stood out in round one of the Junior divison with a 6.83 and 5.33 despite the small conditions. The Groms divison stand out was Jacob Dunn (Harrington) edging out Nathan Wilson (Kiama Downs) by 0.69 in a close fought heat.
