Lewis is a talented British Junior Team member based in Newquay, Cornwall and although he is only 16 he's bringing a lot of experience and skill with him.This year Lewis will be travelling to the testing grounds of California and Hawaii for 6 weeks during February and March both to get away from the UK cold and to surf some more challenging waves whilst watching and learning from some of the best surfers in the world.
During the summer Lewis will be seen travelling along the Atlantic coastlines of France, Spain and Portugal following the pro junior circuit maintaining his goal to compete in as many events as possible to improve upon his previous years ranking, and also to keep his seeding in the events.
Lewis's successes have included top 3 placings during 2007 in The English Nationals, The Rip Curl Grom Search and a first in the Gul Newquay Open. Northcore spokesman said “We are really pleased that Lewis has joined our team, he has a drive to succeed in surfing, a professional attitude and a clear goal to join the WQS tour and eventually to even compete amongst the WCT elite. We're looking forward to working with Lewis and supporting him in his developing career”
