Fourteen-year-old Kirra Pinkerton made her long-awaited debut — and it was well worth it. – WSL
But, it was wildcard Kirra Pinkerton who lived up to the position and eliminated Anderson’s travel partner, and former CT competitor Paige Hareb. The 14-year-old picked apart the Drill Hall Beach lineup in her debut heat with a last-minute 8.30 to advance under an in-form Brisa Hennessy and continued to show her competitive prowess against some of the world’s best. “That was really sketch after seeing Brisa [Hennessy] get the second wave of the set and I just paddled out hoping there was another one,” Pinkerton said. “When it came I knew I just had to surf it to its potential. I’m really comfortable on my backhand after working with Jimmy Hogan and he’s been helping a lot with my bottom-to-top turns out here — along with where to sit in the lineup so it’s really great.”

Chelsea Tuach With a Victory in the Shoe City Pro
“It feels so good to start off the year with a win after feeling a lot of nerves at the end of last year so this is amazing,” Tuach said. “It was great to surf my way through some rounds and I had a lot of confidence going into that final already having a few heats under my belt. I felt like I was in a good rhythm with a good game plan and it all fell into place, just like old times.””I’ll stay in California for awhile and get some training in while working on some boards with Michael Barron before heading over to Australia for those QS6,000’s,” Tuach continued. “I’ll be working on my technique more than anything — no heat strategy, nothing like that, just get my form really dialed in. I’m feeling fresh again for those events which feels great and can’t wait to get the year really off and running.
