Kyuss and Quinn were on the road again heading north to participate in event 7 of the Wahu Grom Surfer series at Alexandria Headlands on the Sunshine Coast .With the wild Queensland weather subsiding long enough to complete the 2011 Sunshine Coast Wahu Surfer Groms Comp.In a reduced ten minute final, Surfing Queensland’s expert panel of judges were looking for competitors’ single best wave score, rather than the traditional scoring system of counting surfers’ best two scoring rides.
Rain, wind and 2m wild seas at Alexandra Headland couldn’t stop Byron Bays Kyuss King who dominated the U/11 Boys division.Kyuss’s near-perfect 9.6 ride (out of a possible 10) in the last minute of his heat launched him into the finals.
Kyuss continued his form in the final, patiently waiting for that high scoring wave and with 3 minutes to go Kyuss secured a flawless 9.4 (out of a possible 10) to take the victory in the final.

Kyuss smashing the final!
Quinn Bruce was a stand out in the under 13 boys devision and never once looked like loosing the final, surfing with speed, power and flow the judges were shocked with how good the young surfer from Noosa was.

Jay Quinn has stormed to his third victory from four events on the SOL Series this summer and is fast becoming the most dominant surfer in New Zealand.

Quinn won the Power Balance Pro at Mount Maunganui today by blasting his opponents into submission scoring 16.37 out of a possible 20 points in the final. A near perfect 9.33 point ride out of a possible 10 early in the final helped his cause and it was a wave that his fellow three finalists could not match.
Quinny's style shining in perfect rights.

The win follows his first victory of the season at home in Gisborne back in November before winning the National Championships held at Dunedin in January and then placing an agonising runner up at the most recent event in Whangamata two weeks ago, a final he had won, until the last 40 seconds.Quinn extends his lead on the SOL Series beyond 2400 points which is a massive lead that will take a miracle to bridge by any of his fellow surfers."It's a crazy but definitely a good start to the year, hopefully I can continue this form through to the international events this year" said Jay “the Fern” Quinn.
Quinny is looking forward to a big year on the World Qualifying Series.
