MAROUBRA surfer Jackson Giles is quietly confident about his chances in the Carve Pro QS1000 event, which starts at Maroubra on Friday.

The elite three-day competition will be the first of four stops on the NSW Pro Surf Series replacing the Carve Pro Junior, which has been held for the last two years.

Having surfed Maroubra every day for many years, Giles knows the beach like the back of his hand and reckons this will stand him in good stead.

“There are tricky conditions, but hopefully local experience will lend me a hand.” he said.

The 18-year-old pointed to some pretty stiff competition, including Lennox Heads’ Stuart Kennedy, and some of the boys he shares the Maroubra waves with each day, Monty Tait and Max McGuigan.

“Monty and Maxie know these waves as well as I do and will be a force to match.”

The Pro is a qualifier for the Australasian World Surf League.

Carve Director Matt Whyte believes upgrading the Carve Pro Junior to a QS1000 event will help many surfers to achieve their dreams of going pro.
