Lane riding the wave of success

RAINBOW Beach continues its golden reputation in surfing circles following the latest outstanding success of home grown talent Noah Lane.

Lane earlier this week claimed one of the biggest scalps of his career on the second day of the WQS Tour's Breaka Burleigh Pro.

The Rainbow Beach surfer, now based on the Gold Coast, toppled ASP Tour regular Taylor Gudauskas drawing on a precise and powerful backhand attack.

Lane was rewarded with a combined two-wave total of 12.84, leaving the crowd stunned as Gudauskas was unable to better the mark.

Advancing through to the next round in second was Beau Atchison (Central Coast) on 12.83 points.

Gudauskas missed out on advancing by, painfully, less than one point, demonstrating the intense closeness of the competition.
