Kauai surfer finishes second in HD World Junior Championships

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:


Kauai surfer Tatiana Weston-Webb made it to the finals of the HD World Junior Championships, but fell to New Zealand's Ella Williams at Joaquina Beach in Florianopolis, Brazil.

Williams, who entered the event as a last-minute alternate, battled hard in the final and would lock in to two lefthanders in the back half of the match-up to secure the victory, according to a news release from the Association of Surfing Professionals.

Weston-Webb, who was born in Brazil but moved to Hawaii as a child, was deadly on both the Joaquina lefts and rights throughout the Women's HD World Junior Championships. The Hawaiian was unable to find a rhythm in the Final bout against Williams.

"I'm really happy for Ella (Williams)," Weston-Webb said. "I love to watch my friends win and having my family here for this competition is amazing and I'm sad to let them down. Their endless love and support is what my keeps my head held high, so I'm really happy to have them here and supporting me. This is a good result, I'm looking forward to next year and hopefully I can qualify (for the Women's WCT).

Williams also beat Hawaii surfer Mahina Maeda in the quarterfinals.
