THE HULK STRIKES

This was the headline in the Australian news papers that Marlon saw in the morning after his amazing surfing performance at the world under 20s pro junior competition at north Narabien Australia. The hulk is a nickname that the ASP had given Marlon in earlier events due to the power in his surfing. If you haven't heard already, he reached the semi finals in the event and on the way knocked out the ex world champ and one of Americas best young hopefuls. Finishing 3rd in the competition and the world!! Marlon became a favourite among the other Australian surfers once most of them had been eliminated in earlier stages. Seeing a German do so well in there own back yard was something of a first for the aussies and they all soon got behind Marlon who many of the competitors were calling the giant killer of the event..
