Cooper Chapman has just taken out the Billabong Pro Junior Asia at Could 9 in the Philippines!
Coops took control of the Final right from the start, earning the highest wave score with his opening ride, a 7.17 From there he didnt let go and commanded the way the heat played out.
"My Pop is really sick at the moment, so I won this event for him!" Chapman said. "They weren’t the best waves in the Final, but I’ll take it. We had good waves earlier in the week so I guess to make it to the Final Oney (Anwar) and I had to prove ourselves in all conditions."
This is the first ASP Pro Junior for 2011/12 year which Cooper is now leading. This is the perfect start for Cooper and we will be watching him throughout the rest of the competition year.
Great work Cooper!!
