MAROUBRA BEACH, SYDNEY (Tuesday, 28 January 2020): Dakoda Walters (Angourie, NSW) has taken out the Red Bull Airborne Qualifier in Maroubra Beach.
The Angourie natural-footer shone in the minuscule conditions, consistently nailing an array of high flying and innovative aerial maneuvers. As a result, Walters earned a spot into the 2020 Red Bull Airborne event which will be held at the Corona Open World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT) event on the Gold Coast.
This latest win is Dakoda’s first for 2020, following a stellar run through 2019 that saw him win three Pro Junior events.
“This is a bit surreal and I can’t describe how pumped I am to win this. I look up to so many of the guys who surf in the Airborne events and I got pretty stoked seeing it all last year. Hopefully, we can get some decent waves on the Gold Coast when it runs.”
Walters will surf alongside some of surfing’s biggest and best aerialists in the event that runs from March 26 – April 5.
