Harley rides wave of momentum

SPORTSPERSON OF THE MONTH: Angourie surfer Harley Walters has been named Grafton Shoppingworld Junior Sportsperson of the Month after riding a wave of momentum in the surf.

Last month the goofy-footer shone in the dreamy three-foot righthanders at Sawtell Beach to take out the NSW Under-16 title, which included a near-perfect 9.23 wave score.

Harley is rapidly following in the footsteps of his older brother Dakoda Walters, who last year competed at the WSL World Championships and was named Junior Male Sportsperson of the Year at the 2019 Clarence Valley Sports Awards.
