After finishing in a good 7th spot at the ISA Junior World Championships in New Zealand in 2010, Cannelle Bulard made it all the way to the very top this year! And she had to earn it too, with a hard field to battle until she finally faced Bianca Buitendag (ZAF), Codie Klein (AUS) and her Rip Curl Team mate Nikki Van Dijk (AUS) in the last round. With her powerful backhand and a banging score of 13.86 points total she left her opponents no chance.

“This is great, I don’t know what to say or feel! declared Cannelle. It’s my last year as Junior. I had tried to win this competition in the past and my dream finally came true. I can’t’ believe it."

Big congratulations to Cannelle, we're looking forward on what to expect from her in the future...
