Rusty Surfboards Peru Ambassador Lucca Mesina took top honors at the World Surf League Ron Jon Junior Pro in Cocoa Beach, Florida earlier last week. This is Lucca's 2nd career win at a junior pro and his first win in North America.
“Right now I am super stoked. This is the second Junior Pro that I have won in my career, but the first for me in North America,” said a happy Mesinas Novaro, following the final buzzer. “I was saying to god to give me one more opportunity to try to get the score. I was super nervous that maybe I wouldn’t get the wave, but it came and I’m so happy to get this win.”
“Kanoa did a couple of really good airs in the heat, and I was lucky to get that last wave and do really good turns. I did three backhand turns on that left and the final section I made sure I put a lot into it. It was a good wave.”
“The waves were really good this year, and for me it was the best contest ever,” summarized Mesinas Novaro during the awards presentation.
