After securing a win in the final event of this year’s Rip Curl GromSearch Australian series Jackson joined fellow Maroubra Boy Monty Tait, and 4 of the country hottest U/16 surfers Kalani Bell – Stanwell Park, Joe Van Dijk – Phillip Island, Shaun Manners – Margaret River and Jackson Baker – Newcastle, in the 2013 RipCurl National Championship.
Both Jackson and Monty made it through to the Final and in perfect 4-5ft conditions it was Jackson who ran white hot to claim the National Title with a combined-wave total of 14.37 over Joe Van-Dijk 12.93, Jackson Baker with Monty coming in 4th after scoring an unfortunate interference in the last minute
of the final.
Congrats Jackson. The win capped off a great week for Jackson after winning Event 5 and now the prestigious National Championship and he also gains an invite to represent Australia at the International Rip Curl GromSearch finals to be held in early 2014.
