Coasting : Issue 8 Feb 2010
5 www.coastingtoday.com.au With Matt Wilkinson, Adrian Buchan and Drew Courtney contesting the men's WCT for 2010, the Central Coast will have its best showing at surfing's top level for about 20 years. Meanwhile, Copacabana's Rebecca Woods and McMasters Beach surfer Amee Donohoe will contest the women's elite circuit. Bryce Ellis and the late Mark Sainsbury, both of Avoca, led the Central Coast charge in the 1980s, alongside Norah Head's Glen Winton and Terrigal's Ross Clarke-Jones. They were regular top performers on the elite world tour, but by the early 1990s Avoca's Shane Powell was alone in waving the Central Coast flag. A Central Coast surfer has never won the world title, although Shane Powell came within a whisker of doing so in 1994 when he finished runner-up to Kelly Slater. One of Australia's most accomplished surfers in the junior ranks, Buchan would be most likely to achieve world domination, although to date a series of injuries has restricted his seemingly limitless potential. After ankle trouble forced him to miss much of his debut season in 2006, Buchan beat Slater in the final of the Quiksilver Pro in France in 2008 to win his first WCT event title, before finishing the year in sixth position. With great expectations last season, a knee injury cut Buchan down, forcing him to miss two crucial events and strain through a slow recovery. However, he is tipped to be back to his best for 2010.
