Raglan ripper Ben Poulter is the sole New Zealand boy surfer remaining in the main event at the Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championships in Piha. Ben squeezed through his third round Under 16 Boys heat yesterday morning.

“I’m so stoked,” said Poulter. “I was so relieved to get through the heat.” It was pretty intense for the last six or seven minutes. But I had to do it. I felt pretty bad, but I’m so stoked to get through.”
The action continues today with Ben due in the water this morning for the next round.
