When it comes Australia’s homegrown, underground talent, it is local salt of the earth types like Lincoln Taylor that give the Land Down Under such a good name. Proving that given the opportunity, he’s capable of going shoulder to shoulder with the world’s best, and as in the case of the Oakley Pro Junior, and coming out on top. With his upset victory over Julian Wilson at the ’08 North Stradbroke stop, Lincoln came up with aces over the heavily favored Wilson. “I’m over the moon,” said Taylor, whose previous best result on the pro junior series was a quarterfinal finish. “It’s my last year on the series and I really wanted to win this event in front of all my family and friends. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to do it. Every surfer dreams about winning an event at their local beach. I can’t believe that it happened to me.” In Bali, the formidable goofy footer lost his Round 1 heat to Marc Lacomare (FRA) and Kai Barger (HI). Lincoln made it through his repecharge heat with fellow countrymen Mitch Crews (AUS) only to draw Dusty Payne (HI) who went on to win the event.
