If Dion does qualify for the ASP World tour will he be the first South Oz representative?

Not sure how well he needs to do at Sunset but he's 25 at the moment after his finals appearance at Haleiwa.

Nah, Jarrod Howse did a year on the 'CT. Can't remember the year - will look it up.

I'll try to find out what Dion has to do also.

Back in the mid-90's Kylie Webb did reasonably well (according to the EOS, Kylie "won five pro circuit events and spent four years in the top eight").

Of course! I wasn't sure whether she was on the 'CT or 'QS but a quick Google search brings up some events in '95, back when it was the "Coca-Cola ASP Women's World Tour".

Is the tour even on next year? Bummer if he qualified the year it all fell apart?

Yeah I reckon the tour will happen next year regardless of what sponsorship arrangements have been teed up.

He looked sharp. Didn't just scrape thru either - the last few heats he had the other guy in combo land
