The Qiuksilver Pro provided NSB Surfer Kai Otton the perfect opportunity to unleash his wild back hand attack and the Goofy-footer was ready for the challenge ahead in 2010 and it showed in this approach to the 1st instalment of the ‘’Dream Tour’’ With Ottz coming away with an epic quarter final finish.

Our man became world news, shocking world Champion and hometown hero Mick Fanning

In the fourth round of the event

Otton took an early heat lead posting a 7.73 (out of ten) and followed up with an excellent 8.03 narrowly edging out Fanning who, despite posting the highest wave score of the heat an 8.97, could not catch Otton who advanced into the quarterfinals.

For Ottz it was where his run would end at the hands of Bobby Martinez but who cares , it was a solid start and one that he can build from.

Otton said

‘’Its great to beat Mick and to get a result this early will go along way to building for the reminder of the year. Im not worried about anything but surfing at the highest level each time I hit the water. The new rating system has put everyone on notice to perform and I’’m frothing as it put that added pressure on you.

All you North Steyne Crew should get onto every event and support our boy.

Go get them Ottz, bring on Bell Beach in April
