Komunity Project team rider Nikki Van Dijk has taken the Oakley World Pro Junior Title. Here’s all the details:
(Friday, October 12, 2012) – Komunity Project team rider Nikki Van Dijk (AUS) has taken out the ASP Women’s World Junior Title after defeating Bianca Buitendag (ZAF) in an epic final at the Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali.
The surf was in the 6 foot (2 meter) range, with flawless tubes and walls reeling down the reef at Keramas setting the perfect stage for the battle for an ASP World Junior Title.
The 2012 ASP World Junior Championships Bali will go down as an historic event as it’s the first event in Indonesia to crown an ASP World Champion and also because it featured some of the best waves ever for a Women’s Final. Nikki held the lead for the whole Final, using her smooth style to glide down the line and unleash some crisp and powerful carves. She surfed strong, smart and beautifully and will go down as the first surfer from Victoria, Australia to win and ASP World Junior Title.
“I’m feeling the best I’ve ever felt!” Nikki said. “I was nervous the whole heat! I was shaky when I was trying to stand up, I think I was just so excited to be out there in such perfect waves. I’m so honoured to win! This is what I dream of, it’s amazing! To be here with my sister and friends is amazing. I know all my family and friends at home will be so excited!”
"Nikki surfs with so much style and lets her surfing do the talking. From all the team at KP, congrats Nikki on an awesome year and also taking out the 2012 ASP WOMENS WORLD JUNIOR TITLE. We are so stoked for you, said Paul Munten CEO Komunity Project.
