01 Feb north-narra the team to beat
Another perfect summer’s day was on offer at the beautiful Stockton Beach for Day two of the Orica Team Challenge.
A southerly change overnight had cleaned up conditions in the contest area but waves were still small and the two metre king tide mid-morning, played havoc with competitors scoring potential.
Once again the standout team of the day was the North Narabeen Black line-up of Davey Cathels, Cooper Chapman and Chris Davidson.
The boys from the northern beaches of Sydney posted the highest team total of 63.31 after junior surfer, Chapman, got them off to a flier in their heat with a score of 27.5.
That was the highest individual wave score for the contest and will take some catching.
The North Narra Black side will take on North Shelley Black in the opening quarter-final tomorrow.
Quarter-final two sees the Merewether Blue team go up against defending champions, Frenchmans, in what should be an entertaining match-up.
Quarter-final three will pit Saltwater Alpha with North Shelley Red and the final quarter-final has the Junior Merewether side clashing with North Narrabeeen white.
The Merewether Junior side have turned a few heads in the past two days afte outscoring their more fancied open team late yesterday and showing what they can do today.
Frenchman’s got through to the quarter finals in a nailbiting final heat, edging out the Merewether Black team by 0.98.
