The energetic Mitch Crews 3rd place result in the ’08 Oakley Pro Junior Australasia Qualifier positioned him as the first alternate for the Global Challenge should some un-foreseen circumstance prevent one of his fellow countrymen (1st place Julian Wilson (AUS), 2nd place Lincoln Taylor (AUS)) from competing. Julian Wilson sustained a ankle injury mid way through last year, which is what opened up the door for Mitch. The natural footer took full advantage of the opportunity despite a Round 1 loss to Keitio Matsuoka (JAP) and Romain Cloitre (FRA). Dominating his repecharge heat with fellow countryman Lincoln Taylor, Crews went on to defeat Jason “J-Hare” Harris (USA), Crisanto Peterson (BRA), and fell to Dusty Payne (HI) in the semis, who went on to win the Global Challenge. Crews is a spirited and ripping Aussie grom with a bright future.
